Is the weather a lot like Seattle?
Are people friendly?
My husband are looking at retirement in Bellingham
Bellingham is colder then seattle, they get arctic fronts down the fraser river valley in winter. its a large college town.
Why don't you tell us your retirement interests and why you asked about Bellingham? Then we'd have something to work with.
Bellingham was listed in Money magazine as a good place to retire. Its quite nice but they do get more wind and ice storms than Seattle. Its proximity to the San Juan Island, the college, and proximity to social life and entertainment in both Seattle and Vancouver makes it a good choice if you accept the weather trade offs.
