What’s Not To Love About a La Conner Fall Getaway 2014?!

fall_getaway_2014_la_connerKick off your fall getaway 2014 with a tank trip to La Conner, just 60 miles North of Seattle and 60 miles South of the Canada/US border.  Stroll the village and enjoy our museums, retail shops, art galleries, restaurants and farmlands. Spend a day or a weekend, we are here to help you plan your Fall Getaway 2014.

Here’s a list of events and happenings going on in La Conner in September and October in La Conner!  – our list grows by the day, so be sure to also check out our monthly Event Calendar for the most up-to-date information.
