La Conner Overview

La Conner is a small town of 900 residents built on the banks of the Swinomish Channel. The channel gives La Conner much of its color and atmosphere, a distinct seaside ambiance that comes from watching the fishing boats and pleasure craft navigating the channel out to the world-famous San Juan Islands. Crowning the channel is the Rainbow Bridge…the Golden Gate of La Conner.

With its historic buildings, a colorful downtown assortment of channel-front restaurants, inns, galleries, museums & boutiques, La Conner is a prime destination for the stroller. Soak up the saltwater scents and sounds as seabirds sweep overhead or visitors & locals enjoy good conversation and a drink out by the channel. The best way to savor the town is to spend a little time in La Conner – day trips are nice, but a weekend lets you unwind and start doing things on “La Conner time.” Things just seem to move a little slower in the village where there isn’t a speed limit over 25, there are no stop lights, and no chain stores to be found.
