2. Skagit Valley Tulip Fields, Washington
What better way to celebrate spring’s arrival than to attend a flower festival? Cherry blossoms may steal the show during the spring months, but believe me, there’s nothing quite like seeing millions of colorful tulips blooming. Hundreds of thousands of people from different parts of the world come to the Skagit Valley each year to see hundreds of acres of tulips.
Located in the northwestern part of Washington, this famous place has the largest tulip fields in North America. It’s pretty easy to get there, as the area is only 60 miles north of Seattle.
The Tulip Festival goes on for the month of April, but the best time to enjoy the experience at its finest varies from year to year. Some years, tulips may bloom in the last week of March. Depending on the weather conditions, they may bloom as late as the second week of April.
