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. The surrounding nature remains the main attraction in Bellingham, as the city is wedged between a scenic coastline dotted with islands and Lake Whatcom, whose hilly surrounds provide the perfect opportunity for landscape photography. A trip to Bellingham promises access to a fun and affordable nightlife scene of pubs and bars, fueled by students of Western Washington University, who make up nearly a fifth of the city's population.
