Best Travel Locations to See Wildflowers
by Benjamin Kovacs on Jan 08, 2020
There is seldom a beauty that is comparable to that Mother Nature can offer. As you are planning your 2020 travel plans, spring break plans, or even weekend getaways, considering seeing the wildflower blooms in the spring. While this beauty is short-lived and contained within only a few weeks of the entire year, the views are worth it and it's brevity only adds to its exquisite nature. Here are some of our recommendations:
- Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in California
While this park is just desert most of the year, during the time between January to March desert wildflowers decorate this normally dry and arid terrain. Vibrant colors contrast the brown and grey mountains and dirt which only enhances the appearance of the flowers. Catch this view at sunset with the painted skies and mountains in the background.
- Shenandoah National Park in Virginia
Very close to the Smokey Mountains, Shenandoah is beautiful all year round but during March, the wildflowers make it that much more pleasant. The Skyline Drive is a popular scenic drive alone most of the national park where you can cruise and enjoy the views. There are outlooks and trails alone this drive that you can easily hop out of your car to enjoy along your path.
- Chappell Hill in Texas
Bluebonnets, Texas's state flower, flood the small town of Chappell Hill during early April, creating a beautiful scene hard pressed to find anywhere else in the nation. There is the annual Bluebonnet Festival that you can enjoy which features art vendors, live music, and family friend activities. You can also enjoy the Bluebonnet trail which will allow you to take in miles of these amazing flowers.
While you're enjoying the wildflowers out there, make sure to bring some of the beauty inside into your home as well.
