Outdoor activities galore!

Anacortes is a small town situated about 2 hours north of Seattle on Fidalgo Island. The easiest way to get there is taking I-5 until you get to Mt Vernon or Burlington and go west from there. Once you pass over the bridge, the Swinimish Northern Lights Casino will greet you. The town of Anacortes is located another 4 miles from there. There are many parks in wich to hike in, boats to take out for fishing or for whale watching, kayak rentals, scuba diving, or the downtown are to walk around. The ferry system also leaves from the west end of the island for the San Juans and for Victoria, Canada. There are a lot of places to go to and lots of things to see. It's a very nice place to visit!
