Anacortes

 
 
 
 
 

Anacortes is the crown jewel of Fidalgo Island, easternmost of the San Juan Islands and jump-point to the rest of the world-renowned archipelago. Fidalgo, the "drive-to" island (accessible by bridges), is home to the Washington State Ferry terminal, serving the rest of the San Juans and Sidney/Victoria, British Columbia. Anacortes boasts a myriad of recreational activities for all ages, interests and skill levels. Here you can enjoy sailing, power boating, whale watching, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, golf, camping, sport fishing, bird watching, scuba diving, beach combing and much more. A homeport for numerous sailing and power yacht charters, the area has four full service marinas and three public boat launches. Washington Park, a 220-acre gem facing Rosario Strait, is Anacortes' largest and most popular park. It features a full-service campground, boat launch, picnic shelter, and loop road for walking, biking or driving and playgrounds for kids and adults. Deception Pass Bridge and state park are just minutes away, offering spectacular views and a unique stretch of beach. Mount Erie Park, rising 1,300 feet above Anacortes, provides spectacular views of the Skagit Valley and neighboring islands. Surrounded by more than two square miles of public forestland, it can be reached in boots, on a bike, or in a car. Historic Downtown Anacortes offers specialty shops, antique stores and art galleries. The town's historic mural project takes travelers past cuisine from the Northwest and six other nations. Quaint bed and breakfasts, hotels, motels and waterfront RV parks offer an array of accommodation options. Several major events mark Anacortes' annual calendar. The Waterfront Festival in May and Arts Festival every August always generate rave reviews, while Fourth of July and Holiday parades add to the small-town, big-activity feel that pervades this special port.
