The best part of having Bellingham as your hometown is that you feel like you have the best of all worlds. Growing up I could drive 10 mins to spend time by the ocean or another 15 mins in the opposite direction. I would land at Grandpa's property where I could get lost in the woods. If you ever visit Bellingham there are a few things you must to.

1. Head down to Boulevard Park to walk the boardwalk and grab a drink at Woods Coffee a local favorite spot. 

2. Visit The Fork for to grab a bite to eat. We stopped in there for lunch and I had the best Bagel and Lox! The chef there is amazing and the atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing. 

3. Take a hike. Take a few hours and explore the woods, drive up to Mt. Baker or pick one of the many trails along the coast. 

Bellingham has stunning views, amazing food, great art spots and if you love coffee... well you know you will find an amazing cup at almost every corner!
