There is a secret floral paradise you need to see. Once spring arrives, there is nothing better than strolling through a cheerful garden. But one of the best spots to see flowers is a hidden gem that you've never heard of. There are breathtaking massive tulip fields near Vancouver, and you need to go with your BFF.
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is happening from Monday, March 30 to Thursday, April 30, 2020. The month-long event takes place in Washington about a two-hour drive away from Vancouver.
What makes this event truly special is just how big it is. The festival told Narcity in an email there are 50 acres of tulips and about 1500 acres of daffodils.
From March to April, there will be all sorts of events to join from beer and wine celebrations, a parade, afternoon tea in the garden.
Plus, the main activities occur at two farms that will have you feeling like you are in the Netherlands as you walk past flowers and windmills.
If you want to visit some flower fields you've never heard of before and take a quick road trip to the US — then this is the ultimate addition to your spring bucket list.
The second not to miss spot is Tulip Town. They boast 8 acres of rainbow-hued buds plus so much more.
There is also a wine and beer garden, a cafe where you can get ice cream, and even an adorable shop where you can get some cut flowers to bring home.
Before you head over, it is a good idea to check the official social media pages for details as it is up to Mother Nature for the status of the blossoms.
Both gardens charge a $10 admission fee. The prices of all the other activities can be found on the handy 2020 brochure that you'll want to download.
