Is a trip to the Netherlands to see the spectacular colors of the tulips in bloom on your bucket list? Maybe the high cost of going there is a little prohibitive? Instead think about a trip to Woodburn, Oregon, just a little south of Portland. It may whet your appetite for a trip to Holland, but then again, a visit here may satisfy your urge and this might just be that drop in the bucket!
