- THINGS TO DO
Skagit Valley Guided Farms Tour & Tiny Towns takes you meandering thru Skagit Valley’s farmlands, stopping at different farms, a short drive on the world-famous, very scenic Chuckanut Drive, and a visit to our two historical, waterside, quaint “Tiny Towns” of Edison and La Conner.
Ever been to an oyster farm? a blueberry and sunflower farm? a cheese farm? How about a bread farm? Throughout the morning, we’ll be stopping at these farms for you to learn how they grow and process their products. And best of all, sampling their products!
Then we‘ll visit Edison, pop 113. Oh it’s tiny and fun! Want to guess who it was named after? This is where the Breadfarm is located. Everyone in NW Washington knows about the Breadfarm; it’s a fine bakery where artisan breads and yummy treats are fabricated every day, with all organic ingredients. There are a couple of other very interesting shops at the Four Corners that literally make up downtown Edison, including Tweets where great coffee is served (Fir-Sun).
For lunch, we’ll be heading to La Conner, voted “Best Tiny Town in Washington”. But beware, all restaurants are good so you may have a tough time deciding where to eat. Afterwards, we’ll stroll the Waterfront Boardwalk along the Swinomish Channel; so much happens there: pleasure boats, fishing boats (docked or cruising by), log tows, birds and seals, the giant “hats” across the water representing the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community.
The Skagit Valley Guided Farms Tour & Tiny Towns will finish by driving around more farmlands, this time stopping to photograph some of the “still standing” historical barns with the sunlit Cascades as background. A bit of their history will be shared.
The Extended Skagit Valley Guided Farms Tour includes a visit to Deception Pass Bridge, the #1 attraction in NW Washington and one of the most visited bridges in the world! To conclude we’ll drive up Mt Eerie (Fidalgo Island’s highest point) for top-side amazing views of the Salish Sea Islands, the North Cascades and Olympic mountains, and of course Skagit Valley!
