This is an awesome spot to view the town of La Conner, Shelter Bay Community, Mount Baker and the Swinomish Channel. You can walk across the bridge and connect with either side of the Channel. One side is the Swinomish Village and Shelter Bay and the other is the town of La Conner. Great spot for picture taking!

The 'Rainbow Bridge' is a nice setting for pictures while having lunch or dinner on the waterfront in LaConner, Washington State.

Everytime we visit LaConner we see the Rainbow Bridge as part of the scenery from where we eat by the water. So, we traveled to Anacortes and saw LaConner from the bridge, the views were breathtaking going over the bridge!

A red (?) landmark bridge that connects the Swinomish Indian Reservation with the quaint town of La Conner. Boats of all sizes and types sail under the bridge.

There it is! Bright Orange! single span visible from almost all parts of La Conner. There is a park at the East end and there are tribal lands on the West end. It offers a great perspective from down below as water craft transit the channel.

Kind of a fun 15 min hike from beautiful downtown La Conner WA through an uphill park to the rainbow (shape, not its colors) bridge over the Swinomish Channel. Indian Res on the west side, non-res on the east side. Great picture taking views from the bridge. Keep the kids in hand, cars use the bridge. Good place to walk... More

You can get a good look of LaConner from the bridge. It's a very pretty and quaint town. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

Nothing special about this bridge, although it does offer a nice view of the waterfront in La Conner. Went over as we headed to Anacortes.

It is nice to say that you have seen the sights from the La Conner Rainbow Bridge, but it is still just a bridge. I woukd visit if it was not out of your way, but it is not worth going out of your way to see. The views of Shelter Bay and La Conner are great, but most bridges... More

Quaint little town with picturesque bridge and waterway. Nice reflection in the water for those photography enthusiasts. You can walk to it or drive to it to capture it in a photo with crab pots too. Walk across it to get images of the town from the bridge.
