Time for Tulips!

If you go just an hour north of Seattle on I-5, you will be transported to a Dutch wonderland if you visit in the next few weeks during the Annual Tulip Festival. During the month of April, the fields are full of tulips and daffodils creating an amazing patchwork of color (based on the website, the tulips are CURRENTLY IN BLOOM).IMG_3438
It can get very busy on a sunny weekend day with traffic moving slowly as people ogle over the fields from the car (kind of like Christmas Light viewing).   An alternative is to explore the area on TWO wheels instead of FOUR!  Check out the festival map for parking lots that are designated for people who are planning to bike around the fields. As the area is flat and does not cover a lot of distance, the bike is a great way to enjoy the day as well as the view so pack a lunch and get ready to roll on a colorful mini adventure!
