Plan Your Spring Getaway 2017!

spring getaway 2017Because there is so much to see and do during the Daffodil Festival and the Tulip Festival, we recommend that you plan ahead and make reservations at one of La Conner’s lodging establishments. You’ll be centrally located and within a few minutes of all of the daffodil fields and display gardens, plus you’ll be able to enjoy a visit to our waterfront village, shop in our many specialty stores and dine at one of our amazing restaurants.

There are not many valleys quite as beautiful as the Skagit Valley – and there certainly are even fewer valleys as gorgeous as ours is when the sun is out, the fields are ablaze with color and snow-covered Mount Baker offers a perfect backdrop. Come visit us – we promise that you’ll absolutely love La Conner in March and April!

Call or stop by the La Conner Visitor’s Center where you’ll find lots of information – including brochures and maps. 413 Morris St. in La Conner; 360/466-4778.  E-Mail: info@laconnerchamber.com
