TOWN OF LA CONNER – March 2014 

_

La Conner, Washington was founded in the early 1860s and is Skagit County’s oldest community. It is a charming village located on the banks of the Swinomish Channel. If you need a place to relax and browse through unique shops and art galleries, if you want to watch the waterfront or enjoy fine restaurants, inns and bed & breakfasts, then come to La Conner. You can also enjoy natural beauty and wildlife such as bird watching; La Conner is wintering grounds for Canadian & snow geese and trumpeter swans. The fertile farmlands continue to produce food and seed crops and, of course, the annual Skagit County Tulip Festival is celebrated around the world.
