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!

I love this little district. It was our first trip to Bellingham and this was by far my favorite location. Great restaurants, cute little shops, wonderful wine bars, etc. I can't wait to go back!

Nice place to stroll during summer months. Cold wind off the bay other times. Good Gelato, and a walk to the Alaska ferry terminal. Very crowded during Summer weekends.

Me and my husband visited the Fairhaven Historic District and we both liked the atmosfere and the little shops. We had lunch at the Mount Bakery and had the best egg Benedict. Laid back and very nice place to spend a day.

Fun, friendly shops, restaurants and breweries. You can spend an afternoon exploring the historical buildings and meeting the shop/restaurant and brewery owners. Wear comfortable shoes and enjoy!

Don't miss a visit to Fairhaven Historic District if you have time while passing by on I5 between Canada and Bellingham. There are great restaurants for a breakfast, lunch or dinner. Even better if you have time, stroll the waterfront and follow the historic markers...More

There are so many nice shops and restaurants in Fairhaven that are hard to access at times because of limited parking. I use to go to the Wednesday Farmer's Market on a regular basis because I can't always make it to the Saturday one, but...More
