    Culture and nature collide in quaint Bellingham

    Bellingham is a buzzing city in Whatcom County, Washington, with a bouncing downtown area championing flourishing music, theater, and literary scenes, and a postcard-perfect waterfront area overlooking the dazzling, blue Bellingham Bay. The leafy Western Washington University campus lies south of the city, while the east gives way to dense and lush forestland, snowcapped mountains, and crystalline lakes. There’s sure to be a Bellingham vacation rental to suit your travels – whether you’re after a large townhouse, cozy downtown flat, or a cottage retreat in one of the surrounding nature areas.

    Seasonal sports in and around Bellingham

    Bellingham is a sports lover’s paradise, with a range of seasonal activities on offer. In summer, kayaking and boating through the wide Bellingham Bay is popular, as is cycling through the city’s wide and tree-lined streets and around its public parks. In winter, Bellingham welcomes pure-white snowfall, which means one thing – winter sports. The nearby Mt. Baker Ski Area is swathed in smooth skiing and snowboarding slopes. But Bellingham’s not all about sports – its downtown area offers plenty of snazzy shopping opportunities too, from independent bookstores to specialty fashion boutiques.

    Captivating heritage and family fun

    Bellingham is a city that knows how to celebrate its heritage. Visit the Whatcom Museum, the main building of which is based in the Old City Hall, a late 19th century late-Victorian red-brick architectural masterpiece. Inside, see Victorian-era Washington relics and regional Native American artefacts. After, take the kids to the Bellingham Railway Museum, a quaint indoor attraction full of scale-model replicas of Washington’s railroads. The SPARK Museum of Electrical Invention is another great place to take the kids – here, interactive exhibits allow visitors to get a hands-on understanding of humankind’s greatest electrical inventions.

    Sun-kissed summers and snow-blanketed winters

    Bellingham experiences all 4 seasons, with mild and sunny summers – which run from June through August – and cold, snow-clad winters, which run from November through February. Rainfall occurs across the year, tailing off in summer and picking up again in fall. Ski-obsessed visitors can book a Bellingham vacation rental in the winter months, while sun-seekers should book in the summer, when the pleasantly mild temperatures create perfect outdoor hiking and biking conditions. In July, Bellingham also hosts its annual Festival of Music – a classical extravaganza featuring orchestral and chamber music.

    Sumptuous scenery surrounding Bellingham

    Seven miles south of downtown Bellingham lies Larrabee State Park, an enormous 2,700 acre stretch of lush, unblemished pine forest cut-through by hiking and biking trails, and speckled with idyllic, secluded campgrounds. A pebble beach, looking out into Samish Bay, forms the park’s western end. Three miles east of Bellingham, there is Whatcom Falls Park, a small paradise crowned by rushing tree-shaded waterfalls, which is a popular swim spot in summer. A little further east lies Lake Whatcom, a freshwater lake full of salmon, trout, and bass. Lake Whatcom’s shores are sprinkled with Bellingham vacation rentals, too.
