Best places for Road Trips Gardeners to view flowers? In the city center, especially along Central and Albany avenues. The Flower Show, located in the Dutch Heritage Center, features 1,000 tulips in one-of-a-kind arrangements.

Note: the dresses pictured are this year’s apparel for festival royalty. The costume, dating from about 1850, is from the village of Hoorn in the west Friesland region of North Holland.
