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!

“Awesome place to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

I live about 5 miles away from Fairhaven so i go there a lot. It is a great place to shop, eat or dine. Almost all of the buildings are the original 1860-1910 architecture and are very beautiful. Fairhaven is a great little place to find so many wonders!!!

“Don't know much about history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

But you do learn about the area's past through the signs and buildings, local lore on gold rush and pioneering days. Set near the water, it is a charming spot for boutique shopping as well as finding sports equipment for running, biking, skiing, boarding, etc. Great place for lunch! There are several cafes with lots of creative flare in soups, salads, and sandwiches. Veggie lovers would swoon!

“Lovely restaurant and shopping district.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

If you're staying at the Chrysalis Inn & Spa, Fairhaven is a short stroll and worth the calories! The streets are lined with friendly people and offer several dining and bar options.

“Fairhaven on Saturday night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

There are small and large shops ... a book store that is 'out of this world'. Across the street is a specialty toy shop. They have a square with grass and on Saturday evenings they show an outdoor movie, which is always packed with families on the grass with blankets, pillows and just having fun. A wonderful part of Bellingham, WA which if you are ever in the area you must visit.
