La Conner

la conner

La Conner is quaint waterfront town in Skagit County with art galleries, several museums, fabulous restaurants, historic buildings, specialty shops, marinas,  http://www.portofskagit.com/Marina/  and a personality all its own!  It is also home of the internationally famous Skagit Tulip Festival   http://www.tulipfestival.org/ with hundreds of acres of tulips considered to be the best in world.  

The area that is now La Conner was first inhabited by the Swinomish Indians.  John Conner was the founder of La Conner and he named the town after his wife, L. A. Conner.  The town prospered because of the fertile farm lands, the plentiful fishing, and the timber industry.  After the depression, the town became a haven for writers and artist that found inspiration in the incredible natural beauty and tranquil lifestyle that La Conner offers.

Today La Conner consists of a thriving business community (21 new businesses opened in 2008).  La Conner homes range from contemporary condos in the heart of town to Victorian homes on the National Register of Historic Homes.  The largest concentration of La Conner homes are located in Shelter Bay  http://www.shelterbay.net/ .  Shelter Bay is a community of homes, most of which are on land leased from the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community.  There are approximately 1700 residents of Shelter Bay that enjoy Shelter Bay amenities which include, a marina with 317 slips, 2 club houses, a par-3 nine hole golf course, a private beach, 2 swimming pools, tennis and tennis courts!  Many Shelter Bay homes are on the water and have private docks.  Because the land is leased, Shelter Bay home prices are very affordable!

La Conner is a great place to visit, and once you visit, you will want to consider purchasing a La Conner condo or a La Conner home!
