    Tulip Field

    by maju Updated Apr 30, 2004

    The month of April brings the tulip festival which is real nice. it is about an hour north of Seattle off of I-5. It is well worth the drive.

    A big bright place to enjoy a delicious breakfast! 1 more image

    This place was fantastic! I had found it online when searching for a place north of Seattle to have breakfast during a road trip. When I saw Calico Cupboard's menu online I was sold. The restaurant was big, bright and welcoming and the staff was really friendly. My boyfriend ordered the Huevos Rancheros, and it was delicious! I was almost jealous of his breakfast, but that happens when your order a sweet breakfast and the other person is enjoying something savoury. I opted for the Cinnamon Roll french toast - yes, french toast made from a fresh baked cinnamon roll. It was hot and gooey and oh so good! It came with butter and maple syrup on the side, but it did not eat it. It came with two huge slices and I couldn't finish all of it.

    Favorite Dish: We've only eaten here the one time, but we would for sure recommend both of the breakfast's that we ordered. They were both delicious for what they were, and my boyfriend even declared that it was some of the best Huevos Rancheros he'd ever had.

Mount Vernon Nightlife

    Draft Pic's Sports Bar and Grille is in downtown Mount Vernon, a block back from the Skagit River boardwalk. During the day, Draft Pic's serves up some of the better meals offered in the city...it really puts down the notion of "bar food." The establishment is divided into seperate halves, restaurant and bar sides, with both serving food throughout the day. The prices are relatively cheap (3.95 burger w/ fries). Try the Grinder sandwich--a local fav.

    Whatever abiance this place develops during the day, is quickly drowned away like so many of the shots here at night. This place gets loud, and at times, a little rough. Bartender Ty is fast as hell to serve up your fav concoction (just don't order some foofoo drink) and Greg will talk your ear off-but you gotta like him!

    Be like a local and order yourself a Widmer Hefe, and if you feel like getting crazy, order a shot of super-frigid jagermeister infused with goldschlager--a perfect way to warm up after a day deluged in the tulip fields.

    Mount Vernon's Skagit Station

    by glabah Written Jul 7, 2013

    Amtrak refers to this station as Mount Vernon, and that is in fact where it is located. However, the various local transit bus services that also serve this location refer to it as Skagit Station. It is served by a fair number of bus routes, as well as Amtrak regional trains several times per day. This is a non-staffed Amtrak station and can not deal with checked luggage for Amtrak trains.

    This is a staffed station for Greyhound bus service.

    Local bus connections here include (but certainly are not limited to) Skagit Transit bus route to Everett (which in turn has a bus connection to Seattle and various other locations), Island Transit bus route to Oak Harbor (with a connection at March's Point to Anacortes and the ferry terminal to the San Juan Islands), and Whatcom Transit buses running north to Bellingham.

    The station has several restaurants nearby, and it may be useful to explore these if you happen to be stuck here on a long layover.

    While it is a modern station, it is reasonably attractive and has public restroom facilities for those stuck transferring between routes here.

    Favorite thing: This is at Roozengaarde in mount vernon.I would suggest trying the kettle corn its the best snack and its very cheap i love it anyways but you should try it and its a beautiful garden. Lot of different varieties

    Fondest memory: I have gone for along time to the tulip festival and every year its the best. This year was okay not all the tulips where in bloom because of mother nature but hey what can you do but there where still alot that were in bloom and they were beautiful.

    Favorite thing: Well this is the second addtion to the tulips the pictures i have added are from this year april 14 2002. I would go visit the RoozenGaarde where this picture was taken there is alot of variety of colors and the kettle corn is the best

    Fondest memory: Very Romantic place to go if you love tulips with a loved one also very fun to take great pictures the best time to go is when the sun is shining but even if it doesn't shine don't let the weather stop you and its a great way to enter in spring
