Anacortes Mural Project: The Anacortes Mural Project consists of hundreds of murals painted onto wood, cut out, & attached to buildings throughout downtown. The murals have been created by lifelong Anacortes resident, Bill Mitchell. Mitchell was commissioned to paint the first mural in 1984, and the project grew exponentially from there. The art is based on photographs depicting life in Anacortes over the last century – with the exception of famous characters that charm children of all ages around the outside of Anacortes Cinemas.
Tommy Thompson Trail: A 3.3 mile trail just a few blocks away from Islands Inn. The trail runs from 11th St & Q Ave onto an old railway trestle across Fidalgo Bay to March Point Road.
