Things to Do

La Conner is known for being a quaint town situated along the shore of the Swinomish Channel, which is a connecting waterway to the Puget Sound. The surrounding area is home to a renowned and diverse mix of artists, writers, and other creative individuals. It is also known for its Swinomish Tribal Community, Shelter Bay residents, artists, fishermen, farmers, loggers and other hard-working individuals that keep our small town thriving.

If you're searching for a relaxing getaway, then the La Conner Country Inn is a cozy spot for families and couples. The town features many boutique shops, art galleries, antique shops, specialty stores, three museums, restaurants, and more.

La Conner and the surrounding areas are wintering grounds for swans, Canadian geese and our fertile farmlands continue to seed crops and produce food, which is why our local dining experiences are like no other, especially when it comes to our fresh seafood. Enjoy fine wineries and breweries or get in touch with nature through wildlife activities, such as bird or whale watching.

For more information about our incredible town, visit the La Conner Chamber website.
