The Skagit Valley lies in the northwestern corner of the state of Washington, United States.
Charming. Picturesque. These words get thrown around a lot when talking about small Northwest towns. Nonetheless, these words perfectly capture the atmosphere you'll find among the towns of Washington's Skagit Valley, which include La Conner, Mount Vernon, Bow, and Burlington. These towns occupy an amazingly fertile valley that lies between the Puget Sound the Cascade Mountains. You'll find views in every direction snow, capped mountains, lush fields, and waterfront marinas.
Skagit Valley is the perfect place for a getaway all year round. If the weather's nice, you can enjoy hiking, rafting, bird watching, and boating, as well as driving or biking tours, farm and seafood stands, or just sitting at a dockside bench. If it's raining, there's still plenty of indoor fun, including a major casino, museums, and numerous shops, galleries, and eateries.
The dormant fields, river, and marine environment of the Skagit Valley offer abundant opportunity to watch and photograph birds, including trumpeter swans, snow geese, owls, and eagles.
