Tiptoe through the tulips and experience blooms in some unique new ways at Tulip Valley Farms' season debut. The 30-acre Mount Vernon farm and 9-acre Tulip Valley Gardens are located right of I-5 in Burlington.

Both locations are set to open April 1 with row after row of colorful stems. 

“We developed new and innovative ways to attract more people to the region to celebrate this time of year with us, supporting our community of businesses and growers, and making it accessible to people who wouldn’t come because of traffic, perceived fit, or having enough reasons to make the trip. I had a vision for a ‘Magic Springdom,’ and that’s what we created,” said Andrew Miller, CEO of Tulip Valley Farms, in a release.
