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.
