Local Favorites - what to do nearby!

What to Expect
Each spring, we open up our farms during peak bloom times for ticketed guests to gaze, walk and pick tulips to take home!
Learn a bit more of what to expect in this video, and read Visitor 101 for costs, policies and access.
We have guidelines for visitor photography such as no drones, no props or lights in our fields, and going gently around guests and tulips.
We require all professional photographers to schedule their shoots.
