Nothing beats the excitement of seeing a field of beautiful vibrant tulips… that’s exactly how it was at the tulip festival in Portland.
But I must say the journey was not as pleasant as the reward we got from seeing all the beautiful flowers.
The tulip place and our rv park is exactly 52min drive. So you see that part was not a big deal. We drove and got to the are at 2.5miles to the tulip farm… that approximately 5min drive per our gps calculations. Until we saw the traffic and I am not joking on this one. It took us 3 hours and 45min from the time our gps say 5min to our destination. The traffic was so slow we had many discussions wether it was worth the drive. But we are a family that will not quit for anything so we stayed in that traffic and really I don’t think it’s worth the 4hours of slow traffic but hey we made it.
At the gate they charge $20 per vehicle or $5 per adult . So we parked our car and we just enjoyed the beautiful smells of tulips and the colors… and also got to see the hot air balloon. It was a beautiful afternoon to enjoy the tulip festival which happens every year around March.
Here are a few pictures of tulip exploration.
