Skagit Valley Tulip Festival Tour
Your day will begin with a 7:30 AM departure from the centrally located Downtown Seattle Sheraton Hotel in a comfortable coach where you'll meet your guide.
Departing from Seattle, during the hour and a half drive to the tulip fields you may see Snow Geese that winter over in the Skagit Valley as they come from Wrangel Island off of Siberia every year. Driving through the valley, you'll have your first sighting of tulip fields as we arrive at the first display gardens at Roozenggarde with VIP entrance and admission fee included. Here you will have over an hour to enjoy the five-acre display garden with over half a million bulbs painstakingly planted by hand along with a 25-acre field of tulips for those beautiful scenic photographs with the Cascade foothills in the background.
After your visit to the gardens, there will be a short 15-minute drive to La Conner, Washington. Here you will have the opportunity to enjoy a meal (lunch at your own expense) at the many wonderful restaurants with menus for all price ranges. Your guide will give you a range of choices and recommendations, or you can bring your own meal to enjoy at the many vantage points along the waterfront boardwalk. If you like to shop, you will have adequate time after your lunch to explore the boutiques and a fantastic array of shops in this quaint little village.
Your next stop on the tulip tour is a short ten-minute drive to Tulip Town with the admission fee, and VIP entrance included also. Here you will see beautiful fields with lots of alternating colors about every ten rows, creating a rainbow of colors for those perfect photographic moments. You can also take a tractor-pulled trolley ride around the fields for an elevated view for a small additional cost. You'll also marvel at the indoor display with beautiful hand-painted murals and new varieties of tulips available to order. If you'd like to bring tulips home with you, this is the perfect place to purchase cut tulips, as well as beautiful handmade birdhouses.
Your Tulip Festival full-day tour ends with return transport back to the downtown Seattle Sheraton Hotel between 5-5:30 PM, depending on traffic.
