Mount Vernon Overview

Nestled between the San Juan Islands in the Puget Sound to the West and the Cascade Mountains with the scenic Cascade Loop drive to the East, and only 60 miles from Seattle or 90 miles from Vancouver, B.C., Mount Vernon is a great place to start your adventure in Skagit County.

This bountiful city features an abundance of action, adventure, relaxation, and culture. Visit historic Downtown Mount Vernon for boutique and antique shopping and fine dining, or grab lunch at one of our great eateries and enjoy the day at Edgewater Park. Walk your dog or bike along the miles of paved trails, and use Mount Vernon as your base camp to take a whale-watching tour in the San Juan Islands, kayak the Skagit River, go eagle-watching in Concrete.
