Bellingham is located at the nexus of some of the Pacific Northwest’s most stunning and recreation-friendly regions. To the east looms Mount Baker and the Cascade Mountain Range. To the west are Bellingham Bay, the Puget Sound, and the glorious green mottle of the San Juan Islands. And everywhere in between are lakes, rivers, beaches, and trails."
