Anacortes

Commonly referred to as the “Gateway to the San Juans,” Anacortes comprises not only the quaint, historic town on the northern end of Fidalgo Island, but the rest of the island west of the Swinomish Indian Reservation. Located within the Olympic rain shadow, Anacortes is a gardener’s paradise for its drier climate and attracts hikers who explore the community forestlands and beaches. In Old Town Anacortes, historic 1880s to 1950s homes are prevalent while newly built communities with modern amenities and inspiring views continue to emerge. With a convenient location between Seattle and Vancouver BC, residents may pivot toward a variety of recreation opportunities.
