After spending some time in Lynden in Northern Washington on our quick overnight up to the area in late October, we ventured back down South a bit to Bellingham where we were staying. While in the Bellingham area, we couldn’t resist spending some time in Fairhaven, an old little town with brick buildings and cobblestone streets and charm as far as the eye can see. This neighborhood just South of Bellingham is so beautiful. While it’s a small area, Fairhaven is definitely one of the most beautiful little towns I’ve seen and even though it was rainy and cold, Nick and I both couldn’t help ourselves from wandering and exploring to see everything there. From cute restaurants and shops to the most beautiful old architecture, Fairhaven is definitely a must see in the Pacific NW in terms of the best small towns.
Another attraction in this area is driving Chukanut Drive. This coastal highway that winds you through very scenic parts of Northern Washington along the water was so beautiful. We drove it South at sunrise on our way home back to Portland and it was definitely a must see if you’re in the area.
