I went to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival over the weekend. It confirmed my hunch that Washington State is the best state. Not only do we have islands off the coast, rolling hills, and a city where you can take a ferry to work, we have valleys and valleys of tulips. And legal pot, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Pro travel tips: bring multiple lenses. Wear rainboots. Watch out for running children. Don’t bring your dog, they are forbidden. Tulip fest will be running until the end of the month.
