We love the holidays in La Conner! It’s chilly out and time for warm clothes, gloves and hats, the water is beautiful with colorful reflected lights, and our tiny little town becomes a pretty magical place for fall boating.
Pull in your lines and come see us in November and December! Our guest docks are ready for fall boating, and you’re only a 5-minute walk from all of the fun up and down our business district.
For us, the holidays really start on Thanksgiving morning with our annual Turkey Trot fun run. It’s a great way to burn calories BEFORE you eat your Thanksgiving dinner. If you don’t have a family of 25 to feed at your home dining room table, why not come see us, spend the day rooting on our runners/walkers, enjoying the ambiance of our waterside village (don’t forget we have lots of great outdoor art!), then cooking a cozy Thanksgiving meal in your galley and toasting your good fortune that you get to spend the holiday on your boat this year for winter and fall boating.
Once Thanksgiving is over, we always have a wide variety of holiday options for you. From shopping for one-of-a-kind gifts to a great lunch or dinner and cocoa nightcap, to a romantic weekend, you’ll find La Conner a perfect place to hang out.
December is full of fun events! Our annual breakfast with Santa, community Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and lighted boat parade along the Swinomish Channel are all fun for the entire family – bring your kids, bring your grand kids, and be sure to bring your camera! Dates change from year-to-year, so check our calendar for exact dates. Visit the LC Blog – Winter Getaway for the latest events and happenings.
If you’re looking for a winter fall boating getaway that’s close enough to get to in just a couple hours, but far enough away to really feel like you’ve had a wonderful adventure, La Conner has all sorts of fun things to offer. Hope to see you at our guest docks this holiday season!
