Tips from locals

A hidden local gem! Great for walking/running (2.25 mi around the lake), in the summer it's my go-to swimming hole. Padden has a good dog park, lots of grills, boat rentals, a great playground, lots of space for sports, and several miles of trails that go deep into the woods. In the winter the lake…

2.5 mile loop in the woods and along shoreline of this pretty lake. Attached dog park too. Fishing. Paddleboarding. Open water swimming. The perfect lake.

“Very busy place - the food is delish too. Go on a weekday for the best seats and service. ”

“There are three and a half miles of trails in Whatcom Falls Park. Many routes wind through the forests here, some overlooking the creek gorge and still pools. Some wind through open meadows, while others stay in deep forest. A WPA-built stone bridge greets visitors, just 100 yards from the parking area. It's a beautiful, mossy wonder that makes a great destination in and of itself, though further wandering in the park is a fantastic day outing. Connect to Bloedel Donovan Park, the Railroad Trail, or do a one-mile loop in the park by beginning in the Silver Beach Road parking area, near the stone bridge at the main falls.”

“One of the OG breweries in Bellingham. The food is good, it's a great place to catch a game. The beer is safe but delish anyway.”

“One of our best local parks, right along Bellingham Bay. Woods Coffee is central to numerous walks connecting downtown to Fairhaven. Wide expanses of lawn for frisbee and volleyball; a band shell; this park has it all.”
