Tulip Festival in Skagit County

I finally made it to see the tulips and visit the nearby town of La Conner.  Traffic in the town was terrible.  i wonder why the don’t set up a shuttle system or tulip tour ‘buses’ and reduce or eliminate car traffic.  We sat in our car just after the visitor center for more than 30 minuites before we parked in a lot and walked to Rosengaarde, a quarter mile away.  It was a beautiful day and worth the walk.  We even think we could have walked to La Conner after and avoided the queues on the way out (equally, if not more, backed up). My other idea is to take your bike and bike around the town to see the fields.
 
After we visited the tulips, we lunched in La Conner near the SeaPlane landing.  It was a nice afternoon to walk the town and La Conner is quaint with it’s many bed and breakfasts, antique shops and proximity to Anacortes.  The slough or canal that runs through the town is salt water fed by the Straight of Juan de Fuca and the Sound.  This is a must stop if you are already up there in Tulip land, anyway.  🙂
 
I posted some pictures in my photos section on this space.  You can find more information here: http://www.tulipfestival.org/
