Bellingham, Washington, is a fun getaway that offers beautiful views of Mt. Baker and outdoor recreation. The border between Canada and the United States goes through it, and it is the starting point of the Alaska Ferry. If you're a music, art and food lover, you can join in the activities of the locals and enjoy.
Golf, bird watching, water adventures and scenic drives are some of the most popular things to do. When you're on the Mt. Baker highway, you can leave the city behind and begin a journey through alpine vistas and rolling farmland. In whatever season you plan to visit Bellingham, you'll have a wide range of lodgings and activities to choose from.
Bellingham International Airport (BLI) is just three miles northwest of the center of Bellingham. It also serves as the gateway to Vancouver, Seattle, San Juan Islands and the North Cascades. You'll meet Canadians who have come down to take advantage of the shopping and relatively cheap gasoline.
Whale watching in the Salish Sea, through the San Wan Islands, is an experience for everyone. Take a closer look at the islands and enjoy the fresh air and diverse wild life, or hear the history narration of the tour guide. A sighting of an Orca whale pod is an added bonus.
