It's close to the Canadian border (25 miles) and is the northernmost city in the contiguous U.S. with more than 50,000 people.

Things to Do

Bellingham is home to several interesting museums. There's the Whatcom Museum of History and Art, the Bellingham Railway Museum, and the Spark Museum of Electrical Invention. Mindport is a privately funded arts and science museum. Bellingham also has thriving music and literary scenes, largely due to the university population.

If you need a good laugh, stop by Ryan Stiles' (from Whose Line Is It Anyway and Drew Cary fame) Upfront Theatre for a little improv.
Bellingham is also an area of striking natural beauty. You can experience that with a trip to the Upper Falls and the Whatcom Creek gorge in Whatcom Falls Park, which runs through the center of the city.
