Spectacular natural beauty and a unique quality of life in our corner of the Pacific Northwest.

Living and working in Whatcom County comes with many rewards.

Our corner of the Pacific Northwest features one of the most spectacular natural environments and moderate climates in the country. Whatcom County is a haven for those who appreciate nature and the outdoors. Outside Magazine rated Bellingham one of the Best Outside Towns in 2006 and OutdoorsNW calls it the “Best Paddling and Adventure Town.” Opportunities for outdoor recreation abound, as do daily opportunities for observing wildlife and admiring natural landscapes.

Whatcom County enjoys a thriving visual and performing arts scene, with a local symphony orchestra, monthly and seasonal art walks, studio tours, and performing arts centers at Western Washington University and the historic Mount Baker Theater.

Our rural landscape is a home to rich farmlands and numerous farmers markets. Local restaurant menus feature ingredients from local farms, and these same ingredients are available at farmers markets throughout the county. Bellingham Farmers Market was ranked #1 on Sunset Magazine’s 2011 list of Top 10 Farmers Markets in the West.

Our close proximity to two urban areas – Seattle, just 90 minutes south, and Vancouver, B.C., an easy 60-minute drive north – offers convenient access to the amenities of big-city life.
