City of Subdued Excitement

Perched at the northern end of Washington's Pacific coast, the mid-sized city of Bellingham serves as an important stopover on the road between Seattle and Vancouver.
Get a sense of the local culture at Fairhaven Historic District and Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve. You'll explore and learn at SPARK Museum of Electrical Invention and Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Bellingham side-trips: Rosario Beach (in Anacortes), Whidbey Island Distillery (in Langley) and Seattle Premium Outlets (in Marysville). And it doesn't end there: stroll around Whatcom Falls Park, examine the collection at Mindport, pick up some local products at Woolley Market, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Valley Shine Distillery.
