The Skagit Valley is a favorite destination for Washington’s in-state and out-of-state visitors. Lots of reasons for this: the climate of Skagit County is similar to that of northern France, millions of tulips are grown in the Skagit Valley, and variety is the norm in recreation, vistas, paths that diverge, and one-of-a-kind shops and cafes. In 1998, Mount Vernon was rated the #1 “Best Small City in America” by the New Rating Guide to Life in America’s Small Cities.
