La Connor

The waterfront of La Connor, Washington...

Not far from Anacortes, is the art-centric community of La Connor on the Swinomish Channel. Don't let the French-sounding name confuse you... there's a unique story behind that that you can read here.

It's a charming, picturesque town with numerous art galleries that appeal to all tastes -- high end to kitsch. Indeed, the town incorporates art into its public spaces.

One end of town is marked by the Rainbow Bridge -- how's that for a colourful name?
