Travel: Five reasons to visit Bellingham, Washington

Most British Columbians know Bellingham as a pit stop on the way to Seattle or Portland, a place to refuel after a long border wait, do a quick grocery shop at Trader Joe’s and then zip south on the I-5.

But spend some time exploring this charming university town and you’ll find it a place of stunning natural beauty, with a fraction of the crowds that can make B.C.’s natural hotspots feel congested.

Bellingham offers tonnes of space to stretch out on a quiet lakeside or ocean beach, spectacular hiking trails on soft forest floors and invigorating bike rides on a network of trails that criss-cross the city and make it easy and fun to get around on two wheels.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
