Destinations: Still time to see the tulips

The tulips in the Skagit Valley are still in bloom and well worth the trip to view and photograph the fields. The best time to go is during week days to avoid the weekend crowds. 

The RoozenGaarde display garden is one of the wonders of our state and draws visitors from around the United States and the world. Planted there are 90 plus varieties of tulips and 150 flower bulb varieties. 

The display garden is open from 9am until 7pm and admission is $7 per person. Sorry, but no pets are allowed.

Parking is free with an admission ticket. The fastest way from Shoreline is to go north on I-5, exit on 221 before you get to Mount Vernon. Go west on the Fir Island Road as if going to LaConner, turn right on Best Road and drive north following the tulip signs.
