The holidays are over and it’s time to sit back and relax a little bit. Plan your La Conner Getaway with our January 2015 Events and Happenings. After all, you’ve probably been rushing around since before Thanksgiving!
Perhaps a renewing day-trip or overnight excursion to La Conner is just the ticket for a winter getaway in 2015. We’ve have lots of fun things to do and see – whether you’re in need of a cozy fireplace and a warm drink, a little shopping for YOU this time, or a walk along our boardwalk in the fresh air, we’re just the place!
The snow geese and trumpeter swans make the Skagit Valley their winter home. Plan a day trip or a getaway to view these magnificent birds. Stop by the visitor information center for viewing maps and identification cards.
