“Great neighborhood. Great shopping. Great architecture. Great booksore.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

On a nice summer day, there wasn't much I didn't like. And non e of that had to do with the neighborhood I was enjoyuing.

“Quaint, quaint, quaint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The streets are alive with visitors, flowers and lots and lots of shops - what's not to like? Wish we had had time to take the coast road south of town as it is suppose to be spectacular!! If in Bellingham, don't miss this historic distric

“Many shops, Great Restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Spent two afternoons sight-seeing in Fairhaven. We had a great lunch at Jalapena's one day; days later, enjoyed lunch at Colophon and shopped the wide variety of local stores. This is a beautiful historic area by the water on the south side of Bellingham, WA. There seems to be something going on all the time on the Fairhaven Village Green. Fun place to visit with many great sights.

“Fun day checking out the stores and Farmers Market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Great Farmers Market, although a bit on the pricey side. We had fun checking out the specialty stores and buying some great finds.

“A nice wander around spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

There are funky, cool and fun shops...lots of independent stores.
Not at all your typical "fake-box" plaza with the same typical Gap and White House stores.
Mallards: Think world class ice cream with other worldly flavors (Ghost Pepper and Coconut..wow..run for water)
