Enjoy small town Pacific Northwest living

On the shores of the Skagit River, Burlington is a quiet hamlet nestled just off the coast of Washington's scenic inland waterways. With a historic downtown and a population under 10,000, this former logging town offers a taste of simpler times and a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. While the opportunities to experience the local nature are endless, those who want a big city fix are in luck, as Seattle and Vancouver are each about an hour away (just don't forget your passport if you plan to head to Canada).

Things to do

Bask in the scenic glory of the Pacific coast

The views don't get any better than the ones you get from a trip down winding Chuckanut Drive, particularly popular with motorcyclists and sunset aficionados. Deception Pass State Park offers 77,000 feet of saltwater shoreline full of cliffs, hiking trails, and beaches offering a chance for an invigorating dip in chilly Puget Sound. There are also 4 freshwater lakes popular for camping, boating, and fishing. For some top-notch motorsports, head to Skagit Speedway. Kids will love blowing off some steam at the Skagit River Park Playfields or the Children's Museum of Skagit County.

Activities

Where the eagles soar and the snowboarders shred

Home to the annual Berry Dairy Days festival, small town life doesn't get quainter than on Burlington's historic Fairhaven Avenue. For some retail therapy, explore the charming shops or head to nearby Cascade Mall. Pack your binoculars for a unique chance to see bald eagles in their natural habitat, especially in winter when their numbers spike as the salmon come home to spawn. Take to the waters on the scenic Puget Sound ferries, or try your hand at fishing. A winter Burlington vacation rental puts you on the doorstep of Mt. Baker, a snowboarding mecca. The skiing isn't too shabby, either.

Weather

Don't forget to pack a sweater

If you're looking to beat the heat you're in luck, because it's never too hot in Burlington. Even in the warmest months of June to September, temperatures usually only get up to the high 60s or low 70s (layers will come in handy at night). Thanks to the saltwater air, the area sees very little snow, though low temps from November to March can dip into the 30s, so bring a coat. You'll also want an umbrella if you book a Burlington vacation rental in the rainy season from November to January.

Natural features

Where the mountains meet the sea and wolves roam free

A Burlington vacation rental will surround you with an unrivaled diversity of nature, from freshwater lakes, to forested hills, to the rocky coast and beaches of Puget Sound. Nearby Chuckanut Drive is one of the rare places where the local mountains touch the inland waterways. A system of dikes protects the town from regular flooding of the Skagit River. The forests are home to endless hiking trails where you're likely to encounter plenty of local wildlife. There have even been some gray wolf sightings in recent years.
