“Picturesque area of Bellingham with lots of shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We enjoyed walking the streets of this area with its many boutiques and specialty shops and lots of restaurants and coffee shops. The boardwalk along Bellingham Bay is a great spot to walk in the evening (with lots of benches to sit and enjoy the view of the boats and animals, in addition to the people).

“A historic town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

From a West coast US perspective, Fairhaven has a fair amount of history. Plenty of interesting shops and cafes with some must visits like Village Books. Plenty of "we tolerate everything thing" crack-heads and druggies as well. Streets are steep so if you don't get around well you'll be restricted to the immediate center, but that's where most things are anyway. A fun place to spend the day.

“Transplant Center”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

The place is filled with Californian transplants and meth heads. Expensive farmer's market. Hard to find parking and crowded.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Recommended by friends, we were unsure what to expect in Fairhaven. Found an up and coming revitalized area of shops, restaurants and a great book store. They have kept the old town feeling.Be warned that the area is on a hill and my over 80 friend had to go slowly , so we did not get into the side streets.
