Burlington, known as “The Crossroads of the Skagit Valley,” sits at the junction of I-5, Hwy 20, and Chuckanut Drive within minutes of area attractions. The nearby Skagit River, North Cascades National Park and Deception Pass State Park provide the opportunity to camp, fish, bird watch, hike, ski, boat, and more. The Avalon Golf Links features 27 holes amid panoramic views. If shopping is your recreation, several retail markets—downtown, the Cascade Mall, Burlington Crossings, Burlington Stores, Costco and The Outlet Shoppes at Burlington attract nearly 60,000 shoppers a day – making Burlington the county’s major retail center.  In addition to convenient shopping, Burlington boasts great schools, a new library, and new city hall. Residents enjoy two main community events. Berry-Dairy Days, in June, celebrates the agriculture and dairy industries that are a major employment base in the Valley. Revelers enjoy music, food, parade, vendors, fireworks, car show and other activities. In September, Harvest Festival & Pumpkin Pitch features a pumpkin hurling contest via trebuchets, children’s games, activities, and locally grown produce.
