Bellingham The Essential
Interesting
A pleasant, well-heeled city of 71,000 in Mountain Banker foothills, Bellingham wraps itself around a bay of the same name. The town is both a maritime hub, as a southern terminus of the Alaska State Ferry System, and a college town focused around Western Washington University, noted for its outdoor sculpture.
