Zuanich Park

My kids have called this park, "the pirate park" for years and even though it is on the smaller side, the view is endless. Right in the harbor and overlooks the bay, such a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. Oh, and if the spring and summer, don't forget to bring your kites-very popular here!

Padden Lake
Padden Lake

Padden Lake has a really nice, moderate trail that circles around the lake. There is even a dog park and an off leash trail that my dog absolutely enjoys!

Whatcom Falls
Whatcom Falls

This has to be hands down my favorite park in Bellingham. It's gorgeous all year long and lots of different trails that can take you to different parts of Bellingham. Easy for walking or running and you can always have time to feed the ducks or play at the play ground, bike trail or a little basketball.

I have lived here for over twenty years, I can't imagine living anywhere else. What my family & I love most about living in the Pacific Northwest is how diverse it is. From snow to the ocean within an hour away, and so many lakes and trails to choose from, it's hard to not enjoy a place like this!

Iron Rooster Bakery

I just discovered this delicious little bakery in Fairhaven and was pleasantly pleased with how moist and scrumptious their macaroons, brownies and coffee was. Not to mention they serve a really good latte and hot chocolate :)

As you can see, there are so many delicious places to try while you are in Bellingham, WA. These are just a few places we love to frequent, but there are so many other restaurants that we still have yet to try. 

Tofino, BC...

If you are planning on going to Canada, I would highly recommend going to Vancouver Island and exploring the island. You will need to take a ferry to get to the island. the ferry will take you to either Victoria or Nanaimo-both are neat places to check out. But, the best place to travel to is Tofino and/or Ucluelet. Long beach is right on the strip of these towns and the beach is a wonderful sandy beach. Plus, the food Tofino is amazing!
