Nestled between Lake Whatcom and the bay, Bellingham is outrageously well-stocked with recreational opportunities. The seven different sports that make up the annual Ski to Sea Race stages are a great showcase of the variety of activities that can be enjoyed in this small city. In addition to plenty of local parks, the town also boasts Washington's oldest state park, nearby Larrabee State Park. The multitude of outdoor recreation options combined with an active restaurant and brewery scene, make this small town a recreational mecca that visitors won't want to miss.

Visiting Tips

Spring and fall are especially good times to visit the trails in and around Bellingham, and the summer is great too. A milder climate means that trails can generally be enjoyed year-round as long as runners comes prepared with the right gear and a willingness to tolerate some rain.

Camping & Lodging

Bellingham has an assortment of hotels, but not many camping options. Larrabee State Park operates a campground, and the couple who owns the "Dollar Lot" offers a few seasonal campsites on Galbraith's south side.

Food & Drink

There's no lack for post-trail food and libations. Bellingham is well stocked in the brewery and restaurant department, so the biggest challenge may be choosing just one to try. Visit Bellingham Whatcom County's website for a list.
