Every community has a personality all its own – La Conner is no different. We’re quite small, we’re often quirky, we’re committed to our art and our water and our history and our landscape, and our community is full of smart and hardworking people who all help make this little town a very special place to live … and visit! We hope you enjoy our Channel Chatter Blog!
