Taking the hour drive up to Mount Vernon to enjoy the Tulip Festival is one of my favorite spring time events. I will warn you that if you too want to enjoy this beautiful experience you MUST get up early! It can take hours to get from the freeway through this tiny town if you wait until the rest of the city is awake with you 🙂
This year we only made it to Tulip Town, by the time we left this area the line to get to the RoozenGaarde was so incredibly long. I wasn’t kidding when I said plan to go really early.
This year was the 34th anniversary. It lasts the whole month of April and truly is one of the most beautiful things I have seen. You need to experience it at least once in your life.
