Bellingham

Bellingham is the last main city north of Seattle before the Canadian border and is the type of place that attracts a variety of residents, where young people attend college (state Western Washington University located there), families enjoy recreation and retirees find a safe haven. Named for Sir William Bellingham, a bookkeeper for the Royal Navy, there are endless opportunities to embrace a quintessentially Pacific Northwest waterfront lifestyle. Seek rejuvenation on the boardwalk at oceanfront Boulevard Park, shop in quaint downtown boutiques, or indulge in seafood along the famed Chuckanut Drive where Taylor Shellfish Farm is located. The historic Fairhaven district is a point of connection for residents and visitors who can easily board a train to head south toward Seattle or north to all that Canada offers.
