Bellingham is rooted at the foot of Mount Baker and at the edge of Bellingham Bay, framing
the city in the most beautiful landscape in Western Washington. Named the snobbiest beer
city in America and home to the second highest arts businesses per capita in the country,
Bellingham is the ultimate weekend getaway for recreation, beer, and arts enthusiasts.
Downtown is the heart of Bellingham and the epicenter of Whatcom County.
