Springtime makes this verdant valley an hour north of Seattle explode with color, carpeting the land with hundreds of acres of tulips, daffodils and irises. The area is best known for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, which runs throughout April and was featured in “1,000 Places to See Before You Die.” Display gardens abound throughout the valley for you to visit, but you can also enjoy the living jewels without getting out of your car: Many of the flower fields lie right next to the road.
Skagit Valley in springtime is the best place to be. From March through May, you will see acres and acres of all kinds of flowering bulbs. People come from all over the world to see and photograph these beautiful scenes.
