Take a trip to a tulip farm!

The Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn, Oregon, hosts a month-long festival each spring to showcase 40 acres of tulips. The farm is located in the fertile Willamette Valley, renowned for its rich, volcanic, glacier soil. Tulips bloom in the Valley a few weeks earlier than in the Netherlands. Wooden Shoe co-owner Barb Iverson says the Tulip Fest attracts more than 100,000 visitors
from around the world each year.
