          I like having privacy and being away from the main city. My husband also does not get racially profiled here like he does in the nearest college town.

          public transportation is nearby.the college is close.and there are plenty of businesses in walking distance

          It's next to a university, which is good to play soccer and stuff. It's next to a grocery store and a plaza of stores

          I like that there are several different things in walking distance. Like the schools, parks and several different restaurants as well.

          I like my neighborhood because it is historical; it is former air force officer housing. The street is quiet and surrounded by a state park with an activity center and playground steps away. It is a 10 minute walk to public beaches and several restaurants are within a 30 min walk. I love being surrounded by nature, birdsong & quiet!

          I love the nature, interurban trails, local restaurants, easy cheap bus systems, good beer, access to legal cannabis

          Living in Bellingham, WA

          Bellingham has been the home of Coast Salish Native American Tribes for thousands of years. The tribes, such as the Lummis and Nooksack, thrived off the fish, berries and other natural plants available here. Named by Captain George Vancouver after the British Navy controller Sir William Bellingham in 1792, the area did not welcome a mass of settlers to the area until the 1800s. Bellingham was founded in 1853, and largely made its livelihood in coal mining, agriculture, fishing and forestry until the mid-1950s. At one time, the city was home to the world's largest salmon cannery.

          Today, Bellingham continues to thrive, though businesses are more centered around manufacturing and trade, with the city taking advantage of its location on the Bellingham Bay for water-based trade routes. Known locally for its eclectic, liberal population, the city remains a welcoming community for all.
