See 300,000 Tulips This Spring Just Over an Hour From Rockford
Spring has sprung, and that means it's flower season.
I feel like last year the big thing to do was sunflower fields. But that's so 2020.
How about a field filled with over 300,000 tulips? Sounds pretty magical to me.
So where can you experience this flower fun? From mid-April through mid-May, there's a giant tulip festival happening at Richardson Farm. It's the Richardson Tulip Festival.
Richardson Farm is just a little over an hour from Rockford. They're located at 909 English Prairie Rd, Spring Grove, IL 60081. Onlyinyourstate details -
Richardson Farm started as a homestead in 1836 by Robert Richardson who moved here from England. It started out as a 240-acre farm, growing to include over 544 acres and two farmsteads over the years.
You might have heard of Richardson Farm before. But not for their tulips, for their corn maze. The farm is known for its corn maze, named the "World's Largest" at 28 acres with 9 to 10 miles of winding trails.
So they've got Spring and Fall covered, but the fun doesn't stop there. OIS details -
Aside from the corn maze, there's a 700-foot zip line, zorbing, train and wagon rides, a petting zoo, pumpkin patch, sunflower festival, Christmas trees, and so much more to keep you and your family entertained and coming back for more all year long.
