About Anacortes

Anacortes, Washington is perhaps best known as that place where you can take a ferry boat to one of the beautiful San Juan Islands, but it is so much more than that! There is a strong sense of community in this beautiful little seaside town, with a variety of quaint shops and restaurants, and it is surrounded by more than 3,000 acres of dedicated forest lands with numerous hiking trails. And did you know that Anacortes is actually on an island too? Located less than 2 hours north of Seattle and less than one hour southwest of Bellingham, Anacortes is a lovely seaside community on Fidalgo Island.
