There simply is nothing like Skagit Valley during tulip season; a feast for the senses. Miles of vibrant multi-colored tulips bloom throughout the landscape eliciting smiles from young and old alike. Our overnight excursion starts with a healthy lunch and little free time in Mt. Vernon before our tour of the sprawling tulip fields. We will visit Roozengard where you can purchase bulbs, bouquets, gifts and more, or wander the fields taking advantage of some of the most amazing photo-ops ever!
You’ll have some free time in quaint Laconner, before checking in at The Country Inn. That evening you’ll have free time to grab a meal or cocktail on you own at one of the many establishments within a few blocks of the hotel. The next morning after breakfast at the hotel, you’ll have time to explore the Laconner’s unique shops along the waterfront. We will meet at the docks around 10:45 to board a boat for a 2.5 hour cruise out the Swinomish Channel and through the awe inspiring beauty of Deception Pass. The cruise includes a cracked crab and BBQ chicken lunch. We will return to Laconner and start for home around 1:30 pm.
