I was in Bellingham in September. It's a gorgeous little college town, which offers a wonderful Seattle side trip (2 hour drive, 3 hours by Amtrak) if you're ever up there.

It's convenience to Seattle and Vancouver make it prime target for development.

^ Great pics. I like how Bellingham has two "downtowns"; downtown & Fairhaven. Once upon a time they were seperate towns. The Alaska ferry system's only lower 48 state stop is at Fairhaven.

Here are a few more pics:
