La Conner is consistently on the top of lists such as “Best Washington State Weekend Getaway” and “Most Romantic Getaways.” But for those who live here, its scenic beauty, quirky historical downtown on the National Registry of Historic Places, and friendly neighbors are reasons they call La Conner home. Located on the Salish Sea midway between Vancouver, British Columbia, and Seattle, La Conner captures both the quaint seaside town atmosphere and the vibrant San Juan Island marina launch point.
Charming shops on the sidewalk or art on the water down on the boardwalk? Brewery with locally sourced malt or gallery featuring local artists? Museum – Native American artifacts or antique quilts? Brew on the Slough Beer Festival or Tulip Festival? And, oh, my gosh, which restaurant to choose? If you live here, you can take part in all that La Conner has to offer.
Fewer than 1,000 people currently make up the LaConner census rolls, but with luck, you could join them. Single-family homes range from $150,000 for a cute Craftsman to over two million dollars for an executive compound with a killer view. Or you could erect your own castle on a buildable lot. You will be surrounded by rich farmland where you can pick your own fruit or flowers, unending recreational opportunities on the water and the trails, wildlife and bird-watching in all seasons, and your anchor would be La Conner. Come and taste this place.
