If you had to pick the one thing you loved the most about spring, it would, of course, have to be all the pretty flowers that come with the season. Even though they have a short blooming season, tulips are some of the most stunning flowers to see growing in fields. Thanks to these family-operated businesses, you can get up close and personal with some of America's prettiest blooms. If you have room on your spring travel bucket list, you're going to want to add a visit to one of these beautiful tulip farms ASAP!
Take a trolley ride around the Tulip Town fields that feature a variety of 70 different types of tulips. Tulip Town is part of the Skagit Valley Bulb Farm, which has been operated by the DeGoede family since 1986. The farm will reopen on March 19 and will be open through the end of tulip season.
