What a cute little town! Clean, many shops to wander through. So many people out and about with their dogs! Loved it!

“Always enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Fairhaven is a quaint, granola neighborhood that is stuck in the 1960s. It's a delightful place to walk for a relaxing afternoon. There are numerous interesting shops and restaurants, housed in historical buildings with gorgeous architecture. Bellingham Bay is visible, and close by is the over-the-water walkway that will take you to Boulevard Park, and Marine park is just a short two minute drive down the hill. If you are there in the evening, you may even catch the outdoor theater. The neighborhood is built on a fairly steep grade, so if walking is difficult for you, you'll want to be prepared for that. It's not prohibitive, but just be aware that some of the sidewalks have a fair incline to them.

“Wonderful!!!'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Whether you are into local history (read Taimi Dunn Gorman's book Haunted Fairhaven), food, shopping or just gawking - this is the place to be. Of special note - Village Books and the Skylark Restaurant.

“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
