“soaking in the historic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

take a walk down historic streets and turn of the century ( and older ) sidewalks - Fairhaven is made for strolling - from barbershops to vintage clothing stores ( south side trends ) real English fish and chips served from a double decker bus ,take a wander down to the ferry terminal and enjoy a pint at Archers ale house - nice afternoon stroll - and super decorated streets at Christmas - Fun fun fun

“So many wonderful small shops.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 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.
