Daffodils are in peak bloom right now in the Skagit Valley
The 2018 Skagit Valley Tulip festival is on! Right now, it’s the daffodils that are in peak bloom, but the tulip colors are coming and the next couple of weeks should be a great time to see the color!
The Skagit Valley Tulip festival has a bloom map, which shows you where to see the flowers currently in bloom and shows you where to drive to see them.
Peak tulip bloom in the Skagit Valley
The tulip festival is beautiful and also can be extremely crowded. Here are some tips to beat the crowds if you’re heading up to the Skagit Valley:
- Be willing to go when it’s raining (photos can be very dramatic and crowds will be less…but bring your rubber boots!)
- Go late in the day, or in the evening (great lighting for photos and less crowds)
- Go on a weekday
- Park your car and bike the Daffodils and Tulips! See great beauty, beat the traffic and get exercise at the same time!
