Rick Steves Visits Whatcom County

Washington State's most famous European traveler, Rick Steves, put his jet-setting ways on hold for the summer—so we took this opportunity to bring him up to Bellingham and surrounding Whatcom County for a series of videos.

This final segment hosted by Rick Steves features his explorations of Whatcom County, Washington. Episode three, “Arts & Culture,” shows Steves exploring the Fairhaven and Downtown Arts Districts of Bellingham, touring exhibits, and even soaking up some historic maritime culture in the uppermost Pacific Northwest.

Episode two, “Extremely Northwest,” shows Steves learning about the exclave community of Point Roberts, enjoying the borderless zone at what is both a Provincial and State Park on the Canadian border, and soaking up seaside living in the uppermost Pacific Northwest. Release date: September 20, 2021
