Roozengaarde Display Garden

In 1985, RoozenGaarde was founded as a small showgarden and retail shop. With this addition Washington Bulb Co, Inc. was now able to reach out to the many individual flower enthusiasts and gardeners who wanted direct access to WBC’s great products. Flowers and floral arrangements are available every day of the year. The gift shop is also stocked with Tulip Festival merchandise, gardening tools and books, and unique gifts for the home and garden. The original showgarden has grown to over 3 ½ acres and is annually planted with over a ¼ million spring flowering bulbs. Included in this count are 85 different varieties of tulips, 25 varieties of daffodils, plus varieties of hyacinths, crocuses, and irises. Every flower is listed in our bulb catalog (and online!) which is available for visitors as they stroll through the garden. We encourage visitors and home gardeners alike to come check us out to simply enjoy the sights or see what ideas you can take back home for your own flower beds!

Visited this garden when the sun was out! Parking is very well organized. Friendly staff. Everything was muddy - but they try to keep it a pleasant experience. The display garden was surprisingly open and saw some new flowers there. Fun to watch the artists painting. Walked around the fields - glad we had our boots on. There was a drone hovering above the tulip fields even though they are not allowed.

Tulip Town

Reviewed By ReaderPat - Sioux Falls, South Dakota

I visit my sons in Seattle once or twice a year for 3-6 weeks. This past spring I planned an April trip so I could see the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. I love flowers and was enthralled while touring Tulip Town.

We went through the indoor flower show and watched a mural artist working on the mural behind one aisle of the show. There are several specialty gardens. There are 14 countries represented in the World Tulip Summit Society Garden. There is a Veteran’s Memorial Garden, a trial garden with the new varieties available by catalog, and a windmill display garden.

It was a wonderful day, and I would definitely return.

North Cascades Institute Skagit Tours- Day Tours

Reviewed By Mikeb1Falmouth_MA - Falmouth, MA

After checking in, we were offered a buffet lunch, a brief talk about the tour, and then off to the boat for a beautiful ride through Diablo Lake in the North Cascades. We had great weather and the views were beautiful. One highlight of the tour was a stop at one of the dams that provide electric power for Seattle. If you're going to be in the area, make sure to get reservations. It's well worth the day.

A bit off the beaten path, but so worth it. Fun history lesson for our 10 year old grandsons. WWII is much more interesting if you can see and touch bits and pieces of the past. Big, clean facility.

Children's Museum of Skagit County

The Children's Museum of Skagit County has 11,000 square feet of exhibit space filled with hands-on, interactive learning activities for kids of all ages! The mission of the Children's Museum of Skagit County is to promote, encourage, and increase an understanding of the arts, science, culture and literature among the children, youth, families and educators in Skagit County and beyond.

Reviewed By Sandra N - Burlington, Washington

This children's museum is small so there aren't as many things to do within as with larger ones but they have packed it full of fun learning experiences for kids. It is great for younger kids but I don't see it being as appealing for the older ones. We have done birthday parties there and gone just for a fun afternoon of play. My youngest is 4-1/2 and really enjoys it.

Price is reasonable for the size.

Friends who live in the area took us up at sunset to see the park and the views...it is spectacular. What a perfect spot for picnicing and/or hiking. Plan to return and hoping for a clear day in April to view the tulip fields.
