Four of us (two couples) traveled down to Bellingham WA on the Alaska Marine Highway and spent several wonderful days roaming around Bellingham. We really enjoyed the Mt. Baker Highway (Rte. 542), the Plover Ferry out of Blaine, the Art Walk in Bellingham, and of course, the Bellingham Farmer's Market. Lots of great food to eat and food to buy, fun entertainment, arts and crafts--a terrific way for families, couples, or individuals to spend a few hours eating and people watching. Be sure to get there early as several booths ran out of food. From the market, you can take a walk or ride on the bike trail too (especially if you eat a lot, as we did)!
