Side Trip: La Conner

There’s a reason why La Conner is so often voted the most perfect Washington state weekend getaway destination and land on top of the romantic getaways Washington state lists. Plain and simple … not only is it beautiful, but this community is full of genuinely warm and friendly folks.

Located on the Salish Sea between Seattle and Vancouver BC –  La Conner is a combination of fishing village and artists’ colony that happens to also boast views of the water and Mount Baker. Shop eclectic boutiques, galleries, 3 museums and a wide variety of culinary experiences. March is a great time to explore and photograph fields of daffodils during the La Conner Daffodil Festival! Of course any time of year is a great time to visit La Conner from tulips to classic cars, “Brew on the Slough” and much more…
