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's stages are a great example of variety of activities that can be enjoyed from the small city. In addition to plenty of parks, nearby Larrabee State Park is Washington's oldest State Park. Combine all of this with an active restaurant and brewery scene and you'll understand why everyone wants to live in the little recreational mecca.

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 stand for 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 your biggest challenge may be choosing just one to try. Visit Bellingham Whatcom County's website for a list.
