Insiders' Guide® to Bellingham and Mount Baker

Book Description

Insiders' Guide® to Bellingham and Mt. Baker showcases a little-known gem of a city about 90 miles north of Seattle and just south of the U.S.-Canada border. Set on the beaches of northern Puget Sound, surrounded by the San Juan Islands on one side and the North Cascades Mountains on the other, Bellingham boasts a setting that is out of this world. It’s a dream town for those with an outdoor jones. But Bellingham is also a college town and offers just as many cultural and artistic opportunities, as well as great places to stay and eat.
