While taking walk along the Swinomish Channel, one cannot help but appreciate the
authentic nature of the architecture and take interest in the unique shops, renown
restaurants and exquisite galleries that make up South 1st. Street in Historic La
Conner, Washington. Founded in the 1880's, La Conner plays host to hundreds
of tourists every year.
From the beauty of the surrounding tulip fields that bloom every spring, and celebrated
during the Annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. To the exciting family fun of the
Annual Smelt Derby held in February. Warm surroundings, and pleasent greetings from
local folk are what you will find in La Conner.
La Conner is about one hour north of Seattle and 25 minutes from the San
Juan Island Ferries in Anacortes.
