The town of Conway Washington is located approximately 5 miles south of Mount Vernon and just 50 miles north of Seattle. Real estate offerings consist mainly of small acreage home sites, farms, and vacant land. The Interstate 5 runs north and south through Conway, making it a great home base for commuters wishing to live in a private rural location, while being employed in more metropolitan areas, such as Everett or Seattle. A bridge connects Conway to Fir Island, and travel onward to La Conner and the Puget Sound in the west. Eastward from Conway will take you to Lake McMurray and Lake Cavanaugh, and then northward to Big Lake – great water sports destinations.
Conway is a rich farming area and part of the fertile Skagit Valley. Quiet country living, along with unique shops, restaurants, a sports field, winery and entertainment venues – the small size area contains a lot! Fir Island is a winter home to Snow Geese and Trumpeter Swans and is the home of the Skagit Wildlife Area, a game preserve for duck hunters, also enjoyed by hikers, birders, and photographers.
