Stopped by to see the quilts and an excellent tapestry exhibit. The quilts were beautiful with both old and contemporary designs. The special exhibit of tapestries were fascinating...telling a story through art. I recommend a stop if you are in La Connor and have an interest in quilts.

Roozengaarde Display Garden

In 1985, RoozenGaarde was founded as a small showgarden and retail shop. With this addition Washington Bulb Co, Inc. was now able to reach out to the many individual flower enthusiasts and gardeners who wanted direct access to WBC’s great products. Flowers and floral arrangements are available every day of the year. The gift shop is also stocked with Tulip Festival merchandise, gardening tools and books, and unique gifts for the home and garden. The original showgarden has grown to over 3 ½ acres and is annually planted with over a ¼ million spring flowering bulbs. Included in this count are 85 different varieties of tulips, 25 varieties of daffodils, plus varieties of hyacinths, crocuses, and irises. Every flower is listed in our bulb catalog (and online!) which is available for visitors as they stroll through the garden. We encourage visitors and home gardeners alike to come check us out to simply enjoy the sights or see what ideas you can take back home for your own flower beds!

Visited this garden when the sun was out! Parking is very well organized. Friendly staff. Everything was muddy - but they try to keep it a pleasant experience. The display garden was surprisingly open and saw some new flowers there. Fun to watch the artists painting. Walked around the fields - glad we had our boots on. There was a drone hovering above the tulip fields even though they are not allowed.

We found this place by accident when we attended a birthday party at the beach. Found out that they have wonderful yurts!!! There's great trails especially down to the beach. You can hike from the camp grounds to treat yourself at the café at Kayak Pt Golf.

The Conway Muse

Reviewed By Jeffle - Seattle

The Muse is not your ordinary singer-songwriter cafe. The moment you walk through their doors to the wonderful, wildly decorated interior, you know that you're not in Kansas anymore.

But don't let the decor fool you. The Muse books some of the best music acts in the area. Owners / hosts Thom and Elfa make everybody feel welcome - the place has a wonderful vibe.

Their focus is on world music, Americana, singer-songwriter, and similar - they showcase some of the best music around in those genres.

In my experience, the audience is another draw - they're there mostly for the music, which is why we go there.

Even so, the food is a bit more than adequate (try the flatiron steak!), and they have a full bar, with a good selection of wines and beers.

The main floor has the bar and an intimate stage. On the second floor is what appears to maybe have been a hay loft at one time - it's a wonderful events venue, and has an open, spacious feel.

The Muse - a hidden treasure of a performance venue!

CISP is super easy to get to, and a wonderful day trip from Seattle or Everett. It has a lovely campground with about 88 spots, many nice for RV's. It has 2 different picnic/day use areas with lovely views. A very nice and well used boat launch, and excellent bathroom facilities. Cama Beach State Park is right next door, with fun trails and a cafe.

Well, it was rainy and the only day I could go. The daffodils were not out yet - but will soon! Lots of walking trails, enjoyed the 16 kiosks, each with different information about native plants, wetlands, how to attract butterflies, and the sad history of the holocaust. Don't miss the fireplace built with bricks used as ballast from English trading ships. Also you will find information and displays from the Pilchuck Glass School, that's only two miles away.
