What to Know
The fields aren't for picking or even walking through, just for viewing and taking pictures. Although there are usually booths with tulips for sale at each field and definitely at the major gardens where you can walk through their display gardens.
What to Bring
- Dress in warm layers and bring your rain boots and an extra set of clothes. The fields can be wet and slippery.
- Pack a lunch/snack and drinks.
- Bring your camera!
- Bring cash for parking, treats and some flowers!
- BEWARE: Strollers will be tough here - bring a carrier for your babe.
