  • There is access to the beach and everyone I have met here is super friendly.
  • The Padilla Bay National Reserve is really a great place to come for a fun little adventure with the family. You can walk the trails around the reserve, go down to the beach and explore, and go inside the buildings to learn about the bay, circle of life, and everything in between that makes the Northwest so special. They have a fun "Letter Box" scavenger hunt around one of their main trails where kids find the boxes and get stamps on their scavenger card, they have clean and well cared for trails and facility, and they have a wonderful week long summer camp along with the Museum of Northwest Art in La Conner for kids 9-12 where they learn all about local art, history, science and environment.
