Owner description: The Historic Fairhaven District is a quaint, charming community full of boutiques, shops, spas and restaurants. It's located in Bellingham, WA on the south side of town, north of Seattle and south of Vancouver, BC. It's surrounded by miles of hiking and biking trails with beautiful views of the bay. It has a little of everything for the entire family. It's great for a day trip or a long relaxing weekend!

“So many wonderful small shops.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

The classic and friendly atmosphere at the Fairhaven District is always engaging. I enjoy the variety of arts, florals and books. Plan to go for lunch and spend time visiting the different stores.

“Fun walking and shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Many restaurants and cafes, coffee, water and ice cream seemed always only a step away. Quaint shops with unusual items. Many galeries ans well as the requisite tee shirt shops, but all somehow a cut above the average.

“Bellingham takes pride in it's past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

The restored Fairhaven district is a treasure trove of small shops, good restaurants, and friendly people. I enjoyed walking about and just taking in the atmosphere. Parking can be a bit of a problem but is usually easily overcome.

“Small but nice historical visit.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

This is a nice, but small, historical area that does have very nice boutiques and a variety of restaurants and would be worth a couple of hours to walk around.
