Flowers are all over the place, but some places are just better for seeing them when you’re looking for something a little more impactful. (Think color, or lots and lots of them in one spot.) Here are some of the best places to visit when you want to see lots of flowers and maybe get some photos while you’re at it. Of course springtime is the best time to go when the flowers start to naturally bloom and keep at for a few months at a time.
Keukenhof Gardens, Holland
The Keukenhof Gardens in Holland is the biggest tulip garden in the entire world. It spans over 80 acres and contains 4.5 million Dutch tulips. Each year there are 100 different varieties of tulips blooming which include dark pink China tulips, the yellow West Point tulips, and red Mariette tulips. There are also other types of plants and statues and interesting things to look at.
Mojave Desert, California
The Mojave desert in California is a really great place to go when you want to see the California poppy is large amounts. The The Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve is 1,745 acres large and has seven miles of hiking trails. You can take guided tours or just wander around on your own.
In Umbria Italy there are tons of amazing orange poppies. There are a lot of places to hike in the area that are great spots to check out the flowers.
Hill Country, Texas
The Texas Hill Country is full of the deep blue wildflowers Bluebonnets, which are also the states official flower. Farms and fields in the area are often covered.
Cotswolds, United Kingdom
The Cotswolds in the United Kingdom is a great place to see tons of yellow daffodils. There are literally probably millions of them that blanket the hills and create quite a site to be seen.
Washington D.C. has tons of cherry trees which blossom and look amazing. The 3,000 Yoshino cherry trees were actually a gift from the mayor of Tokyo in 1912, and today there is still an annual Cherry Blossom Festival to celebrate the friendship between the two countries. If you want to see even more of the blooming cherry blossoms, Tokyo itself is the best place to go where they grow like crazy.
