- EXPLORE SKAGIT
- THINGS TO DO
A weekend spent in the Skagit Valley provides an array of options for exploring your culinary senses. Bring a hearty appetite and save room in the car for goodies to take home.
The Skagit County Historical Museum has created a heritage barn tour including 55 historic registered barns. These self-guided tours include the build date, roof style, agricultural use and in many cases, the family history of many Skagit County pioneers.
Experience the majestic beauty of the Magic Skagit on the trail. Our mountains, forests, valley, and islands are big enough to provide a lifetime of outdoor adventure and exploration. Our trails play a unique role in Skagit County’s environmental community, bringing enthusiasts for recreation and conservation together to protect the awesome wild places we love to explore, and to protect the opportunities for people to enjoy them.
Skagit Valley bicycle rides vary from flat to hilly with views of farmland, mountains, and the North Puget Sound. Walk on the Guemes Island Ferry or the San Juan Island Ferries for an island bicycle experience. Or, take a bicycle tour through the tulip fields during the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Tour display gardens, view open fields, stop at a local garden cafe for a hearty lunch and experience the festival from a local perspective. If you are looking for a world class scenic and adventurous mountain ride, the North Cascades Highway (SR20) is for you!
