La Conner, located in the heart of the Skagit Valley, always greets you with a smile. The city is home to a historic waterfront village that offers quaint restaurants and locally-owned boutiques and galleries. Every third Saturday of each month, the city features an “Art Walk” showcasing La Conner and Skagit Valley artists. Better yet, wander the art-filled streets with a homemade ice cream cone.
The surrounding landscape of mountains, farms, rivers and islands are breathtaking and offer an endless list of outdoor activities. Family fun can be found at the local Skagit Valley farms, where visitors can pick their own apples, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries.
During the month of April, the city of La Conner also sponsors theSkagit Valley Tulip Festival, which has been taking place for decades. Just put on your wooden shoes before you wander through the 400 acres that hold 60 varieties of blooming tulips and an authentic Dutch windmill.
