One great thing about La Conner is that it has a beautiful casino and lodge located just 10 minutes outside of town. Offering a host of entertainment, shows and excellent dining as well as gaming and nightlife, the Swinomish Casino & Lodge is a 98-room luxury lodge that must be experienced in person. Located just across the channel from downtown La Conner is a friendly community of Coastal Salish peoples and the Swinomish Tribe reservation home. In the mid-1980s, the Swinomish Northern Lights Casino opened for business.
It is conveniently located at the north end of the Swinomish Channel right off of Highway 20. In the mid-1990s the tribe took steps to enable the business to grow by adding Vegas style gambling to the casino. Perhaps most notable of all is the fact that the tribe uses much of the profits and proceeds from the casino operation to support a wide variety of positive tribal endeavors. This includes everything from improving medical and dental care in the area to the creation of a fitness center and even a satellite college campus.
Fine Dining and Casual Dining
Today, the Swinomish Casino & Lodge employs close to 300 people and offers a variety of fine dining and casual dining opportunities. It also offers hundreds of slot machines and a multitude of RV parking spots as well as more than a dozen game tables that include everything from craps to blackjack and poker along with keno and roulette. There is also a 300-seat bingo hall for those who enjoy taking a chance with this tried and tested game of luck. With several well-known comedians, bands and other entertainment events in the mix, there is always something to do at this popular and friendly casino property.
A Genuine Pacific Northwest Getaway
As an added bonus, a recent development is the addition of a new and spectacular 98-room lodge. This beautiful and well-crafted architectural structure was designed by Minneapolis-based, Walsh Bishop. The lodge features dozens of king and double queen rooms as well as several suites with many rooms boasting a spectacular and breathtaking view of Padilla Bay, the San Juan Islands and stunning Mount Baker. With so much to offer it is clear to see why the Swinomish Casino & Lodge has become so popular in recent days.
