What Bert Has To Say About Mount Vernon-Anacortes Metro Area


In an area of uncommon scenic beauty, Mount Vernon is adjacent to a vast river delta that stretches west to the Puget Sound but is otherwise surrounded by mountains. Anacortes is a main port gateway to the San Juan Islands and an oil terminal and refining center. The river delta supports a magnificent area of farmland, settled by Swedes and later by the Dutch, bringing visitors worldwide during the annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival each spring. The economy is a mix of farming, forest products, fishing, tourism, and some industry.
