Texas-Tulips in Pilot Point, Texas

Updated on November 30, 2017

Last March, I went to Texas for my cousin's wedding. For the first wedding we focused on getting everything ready for the wedding. The following week, my uncle took time off from work to drive us to the Texas-Tulip in Pilot Point to see the beautiful fields of tulips. When we arrived, we had to pay to get in. It was worth the money to check out the many types and colors of the tulips. Since we arrived towards the end of the season, it was not as colorful or full of tulips as it would have been if we had gone earlier. But I would still recommend seeing this place.

The entrance fee is $3.00 for everyone who visits except children a year old and under, whose fee is free. Texas-Tulip is open 7 days a week from 9am to 8pm. Senior Citizens only pay $7.50 for their fee and to be able to pick 3 tulips only Monday to Friday. Veterans also pay $7.50 for their entrance fee and to pick 3 tulips. Parking is free and you can enjoy their concession stand.

You can pick as many tulips as you want for $2.50 per stem and they even wrap it in pretty paper with flower gel for the stem. For your convenience there are flower baskets available.

There are even picnic tables for you to rest and eat on with public bathrooms. They do have a no dogs allowed on the field rule. But if you have a service dog, then you will need to call them. It is recommended to wear appropriate clothing when picking tulips and walking the field.

With the wind in my hair, I roamed the tulip field taking pictures and video taping what I saw. It was fascinating to learn the different names and kinds of tulips there are in the world. I loved the vibrant colors of each of the tulips. I didn't know that there was so many different kinds. Each of the tulips had an entire row to themselves. This is a great place to take your kids. They will love the idea of picking their own tulips and seeing the field of majestic beauty and color.

Texas-Tulip started two years when a couple and their children came to Texas from Netherlands to make their dream of having a tulip farm come true. Its amazing how this place comes alive in the spring with its vibrant colors and so many different types of tulips. This place really is a must see on your list of activities to do when you are in Texas.

      They're gorgeous. I really want to stop by Texas sometime. I've been wanting to go to Mexico anyway, so Texas would be on the way. Thinking about Texas reminds me of a country song I often find myself singing.
