Car Rental in Anacortes, Washington

Anacortes, Washington is located in the North Cascades region in the state of Washington, and its makes a great location for weekend getaways or long vacations. While it is famous for its terminal (from here you can reach the San Juan Islands) it has many attractions on land meriting a car rental in Anacortes, Washington.

The Personality of Anacortes

The city, first established in 1891, was named after Anna Curtis, the wife of early settler Amos Bowman who came from Fidalgo Island. There are approximately 16,000 people in the area, and the city is included in the general Mount Vernon-Anacortes Metropolitan Area. In total there are 14.2 square miles of space, 16.93% of which is water. Location wise, the city is actually on Fidalgo Island. It is surrounded by Puget Sound, San Juan Islands and Swinomish Channel. The weather here is mild, particularly in comparison to the other cities of the Pacific Northwest. Though the town started as a lumber and fishing region, oil is now the city’s biggest industry, though ship construction, residential services and tourism are holding their own.

The city devotes almost 50% of its mileage to public park space, as well as water and recreational land. In fact, Anacortes, Washington has 12 miles of shoreline and almost 70 miles of trails for hiking and riding. Due to its terminals, the city is home to many boats and is a great tourist city. Much of the land consists of northwest forest and freshwater lakes. It is a great location for sightseeing, relaxing and for travel! Anacortes has actually been named as one of the “best boating” locations in the country.

The Biggest Attractions

The most obvious attraction in Anacortes is the Washington State Ferries dock and terminal, which transports people to destination spots like Lopez Island; San Juan Island, Victoria, BC; Shaw Island; Orcas Island; and other locations. Some of the most popular locations include the Cap Sante Boat Haven, which is a marina that hosts boat charter companies specializing in whale watching, fishing and ocean journeying. On land, there are also many attractions of worth, such as the Anacortes Public Library, an Anacortes community theatre, a museum called the Anacortes History Museum, which is housed in a Carnegie Library, first established in 1909, as well as bookstores, restaurants and art galleries. Popular social events include “Shipwreck Day”, a flea market in July, and “Heck Fest”, an art festival that goes along with the theme. There is also the long-running Anacortes Arts Festival in August and The Oyster Run, which is a bike rally, now one of the largest in the nation.

Yes, Anacortes does have a reputation as a boater’s delight, but it has plenty of family attractions away from the terminal and ferry. The best way to enter Anacortes is through the Anacortes Airport, which is in between the city and terminal. However, this is a charter service, so keep Bellingham and Sea-Tac in mind, as well as the larger Seattle Airport and Spokane Airport.
