About the Town

Some notes on the Anacortes Community

Anacortes is on Fidalgo Island, the southernmost of over 200 islands (some very small!) making up the San Juans. Anacortes serves as the ferry terminal for all the San Juans as well as spectacular Victoria BC. Driving west on Highway 20 to Anacortes from Burlington, you travel through some of the most productive farm ground in the country; particularly famous for its huge commercial fields of tulips and daffodils. In early April, the annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival enchants thousands of flower lovers with an awesome display of color.

Fidalgo Island is a quilter’s paradise! The Fidalgo Island Quilter’s guild has over 250 area members!
