The Hunt for Tulips
We had the Buick Enclave for a week on loan from Buick to travel Washington as part of our new series Discovering Washington. In our first post of Discovering Washington we went on a hunt for Tulips. In the La Conner area there are tons of fields of flowers.
A Week In The Buick Enclave
These fields bloom for a month or two depending on if the fields are Tulip fields or daffodil fields. My children and I scoped out the area in early April to find only Daffodils, we went back in May in The Buick Enclave to find the Tulips. We were three days too late to enjoy the Tulip Festival itself, however, we found other adventures as we drove around Skagit Valley (La Conner, Mount Vernon, and Tulip Town.
Our ride was a comfortable one as we drove just over an hour in the Buick Enclave.
We got up and I forgot to check the Bloom Locator before we set out. We headed straight for La Conner. We didn’t find any tulips in La Conner, a local there said we just missed them. The fields had all been cleared that weekend.
From La Conner To Tulip Town
He did direct us to Tulip Town, which we had been to a month before so getting there was quite easy. But I did plug in the directions on my phone and used the built in Apple Play in the Buick Enclave. I love how the Buick Enclave works with any phone, not just Apple.
A Smart Move
That’s a smart move on their part.
The Tulips were beautiful. I took a ton of photos of the kids in the fields of flowers. The kids took photos too. It was a fun environment to show the kids how to use my camera.

Then I drove back up north so my daughter would make to her acting classes. Then I drove back to Woodinville so my son could attend his martial arts classes. I went home for a few hours before going back to Everett to pick up my daughter. It was a LOT of driving for one day and I became very familiar with the 2018 Buick Enclave. I LOVED how very spacious it was and how easy it was to drive.
