Are you looking for ideas for romantic weekend getaways in May? One where you can stroll hand-in-hand through a charming Northwest waterfront village, do a bit of shopping or enjoy art gallery and museum exhibits, enjoy a waterfront view, savor some of the Northwest’s freshest foods and wine, and end your day gazing at a stunning Skagit Valley sunset?
We have the solution: La Conner’s the perfect choice for a romantic spring weekend getaway!
Only 1.5 hours north of Seattle and 2 hours south of Vancouver, B.C., La Conner is all about romance. We have a wide variety of lodging options to choose from; from bed and breakfast choices, to inns and guest cottages, you’ll find the perfect romantic spot to spoil your loved one.
Once you’ve arrived, there are lots of options for relaxed and stress-free activities. We recommend starting with a yummy latte or perhaps an iced Chai from one of our coffee establishments while you do a little shopping – then duck into some of our amazing galleries, followed by a stop at our 3 fabulous museums … the Museum of Northwest Art (MoNA), the La Conner Quilt and Textile Museum, and the Skagit County Historical Museum.
Along the way, don’t forget to stroll some of our residential streets where you’ll find many beautifully restored homes and gardens – some dating back to the late 1800’s!
If you’re the outdoor type, bring your bikes and take advantage of some of the most spectucular riding in Washington – with views of the Skagit Valley and Mount Baker in the background.
As afternoon turns to evening, you can sample wine or beer at our local wine shops and brewery before you head off to dinner. Imagine local seafood just brought in by local fishermen, paired with lovely local produce (we have 4 growing seasons!), and topped off by a decadent handmade dessert.
If you love art and art galleries, be sure to plan your weekend to include our Final Friday Art Gallery Walk – this month it’s on Friday night, May 31st, from 5pm-8pm.
A short walk or drive back to your lodging, and you can end your day just the way you envisioned it – full of wonderful romantic memories.
In need of some romance? Ready for a romantic getaway? You’ll find Love in La Conner!
