I just love when Spring gets going full blast, with the flowers out, sun shining, picnics, bike rides, hikes, and more!
One of my favorite places to visit at this time is Thanksgiving Point, to see their amazing, extremely photogenic gardens. But, though the gardens are available to visit the entire season, you have to hurry if you want to get to the Tulip Festival. It only lasts for 3 weeks this year!
And while you’re there, check out the Secret Garden. They have a nesting goose there right now that is so fun to look at!
It’s always incredible to me to see the hundreds of thousands of flowers that have bloomed out of the wide variety of bulbs that have been planted. I love seeing the different patterns that have been created by Thanksgiving Point’s masterful gardeners and, along with that, participating in the variety of activities offered while in the gardens. Some of the activities this year:
April 23, 10 am – 6 pm
In addition to the spectacular display of the Tulip Festival, The Old Dutch Store is sponsoring Dutch Day on April 23. Idelwild and the Accords will perform authentic Dutch tunes and guests can experience a little bit of Holland. Garden tours and demonstrations are available every day.
April 15- May 7
Tulip Festival Photography Contest, Thanksgiving Point Gardens April 15 – May 7,2011. Show off your photography skills in a gorgeous setting!

Before you leave for it though, make sure you check around for discount coupons off admissions. I found a $2 off admission this year out of my Hometown Values Magazine, which comes in the mail every few weeks.
Also, if you have an Entertainment Book, there is a buy one admission, get one free coupon in there!
