August is a perfect time to spend some time during a boating getaway weekend … the weather in the northwest is fabulous and the scenery is spectacular. Here’s an idea for a weekend boating getaway near Seattle and the San Juan Islands – including strolling hand-in-hand, tasting delicious wine and beer, dining on the freshest local ingredients, and exploring La Conner!
Boating Weekend – Plan Your Trip
First, make reservations for a slip at the La Conner Marina Guest Docks. Getting here is easy – either from the South Sound or from British Columbia, the San Juans or Bellingham Bay. You’ll find us on VHF Channel 66 or you can call the office at 360-466-3118. Our hours vary by day and by season.
Once you’re settled into your slip, take a stroll to the main business areas of La Conner on both Morris and First Streets – we suggest an afternoon ice cream cone and a walk along our new Boardwalk is a great way to relax and unwind.
Depending on when you arrive, you can start exploring all that La Conner has to offer right away, or start on your second day. Either way, here are some terrific ideas to get you started.
Boating Weekend – Wine and Beer Tasting
We have several options for you to choose from; choices include wines and beer made right here in the Skagit Valley and Washington state, plus regional and imported selections from regions around the globe. You’ll find options to meet every palate – and knowledgeable wine purveyors to help you select just the right one.
Boating Weekend – Savor Local!
If your wine and beer tastings didn’t include food, be sure to check out all the dining options that La Conner has to offer. From fine dining to casual, our restaurants all cater to our visitors, and our chefs take pride in sourcing the freshest ingredients available … from our local waters and local farmers.
