Tiptoe Through the Tulips: Ultimate Getaway

Whether it’s a drizzle or a torrential downpour, Seattle sees its fair share of rain. But for all the slippery sidewalks and lousy traffic that comes along with wet weather, our region’s ample precipitation does provide some nice advantages. Such as the annual Skagit County Tulip Festival, beginning now until the end of April.

This annual event attracts visitors from across the globe who flock to the fields surrounding the rural town of Mount Vernon to view the millions of tulips planted with intricate precision. When these beautiful flowers bloom to form a patchwork of vibrant colors, a truly breathtaking spectacle is created.

This month, Hotel Bellwether – located in nearby Bellingham – invites guests to fully experience the festival with their Tiptoe Through The Tulips weekend getaway package.

This special offer includes a one-night stay for two in an executive or plaza suite, as well as two delicious meals – a continental breakfast and catered picnic lunch – by Harborside Bistro, the hotel’s in-house restaurant. Guests will also receive a goodie bag of treats and gardening tools upon arrival, as well as an area map to assist in sightseeing. And of course, tiptoers will receive free admission to the Tulip Festival — what more could you ask for?

Visitors can enjoy much more than leisurely strolls through the fields and gardens. There are fun runs, art shows, boat tours and street fairs taking place throughout the month of April.

The Tiptoe Through The Tulips package will turn your afternoon of tulip-viewing into a fun, romantic weekend. Or, if you’d prefer peace, quiet and quality alone time with the flowers, feel free to Tiptoe during the week – the package is available every day until the end of the month.
