Perhaps a renewing day-trip or overnight excursion to La Conner is just the ticket for a winter getaway in 2017. We have lots of fun things to do and see – whether you’re in need of a cozy fireplace and a warm drink, a little shopping for YOU this time, or a walk along our boardwalk in the fresh/crisp air, we’re just the place.
Plan your La Conner Winter Getaway 2017 with our January & February Events and Happenings.
The snow geese and trumpeter swans make the Skagit Valley their winter home. Plan a day trip or a getaway to view these magnificent birds. Stop by the visitor information center for tips on where you can spot the flock.
