A Visit to La Conner WA and Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

Nestled among the colorful blooms of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is a little town called La Conner. La Conner, WA is situated on the Swinomish Channel, surrounded by the mountains and water which are typical of the pacific northwest. If you’re one of the thousands of locals or tourists planning a visit to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, I encourage you to take a little visit into La Conner, WA.

Recently we decided to drive up and see if any of the tulips were in bloom, and while all but one field was still waiting to blossom, the trip wasn’t a bust because of our fun stop into La Conner.

This charming little town definitely seems to have capitalized on the tourism industry of the area. If you’re looking for a quaint main street shopping district with some beautiful nearby parks and beaches, then La Conner, WA is just the place.

One of our favorite stops is the La Conner Brewing Company situated near the corner of the two main streets. The homemade root beer is the draw for our family. Buy a pitcher to share for $7. They also have beers on tap and wood-fired pizzas if you’re craving a bit of pub fare.

After you’ve quenched your thirst, head out onto the main street to do a little shopping. Unique little shops line the street and you’ll find specialty stores for things like outdoor dog gear and kitchen utensils. There’s also a volunteer firefighters museum if you’re interested.
