Centrally located between the greater Seattle metropolitan area to the south and Vancouver Canada just across the border to the north, Burlington is at the heart of the Skagit Valley. It is home to the Cascade Mall as well as a number of other shopping outlets and unique opportunities throughout the region. Considered to be one of the faster growing areas of Washington State, Burlington has much to offer to up and coming young adults and families alike.
Originally starting out as a logging camp in the 1800s, Burlington has come a long way and offers much opportunity in terms of educational choices, shopping and outdoor activities. Fair Haven Avenue is at the center of the city's old town district. Fair Haven Avenue is a gathering place for those living throughout Burlington and the Skagit County area especially during the summer days when many annual events take place. For example, the Berry Dairy Days is an annual gathering that began in the 1930s and was at that time called the Strawberry Festival.
Today The Burlington Chamber of Commerce is tasked with putting on this popular and exciting event each year. Another popular annual event that should not be missed is that of the Tulip Festival that typically begins in April as the tulips begin to bloom. While the daffodils bloom slightly later than tulips, this is a beautiful and breathtaking sight that should not be missed. There is a tulip festival gala that usually occurs in late March as well as many other celebrations that prepare for this exciting and eye-catching event.
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is a time-honored celebration of springtime where the bloom date is left up to Mother Nature to decide. Rows and rows of yellow daffodils that stretch as far as the eye can see along with a multitude of fun outdoor activities are always on tap this time of year in Skagit Valley. By Easter weekend the tulips are in full bloom and are absolutely gorgeous by anyone's standards. Bloom maps can be found throughout the region that describe each individual farm and where and when the blooms can be viewed. Buying a home in Burlington Washington is becoming more popular each and every year.
