Blaine

Friendly and unpretentious, Blaine is located on the Canadian border and is virtually surrounded by water. Just 35 miles from Vancouver, this casual community packs a lot of attractions and activities for just 3,000 residents.

Beautifully framed by Mt. Baker to the east and Semiahmoo Bay and Georgia Strait to the west, it is the busiest border crossing point between B.C. and Washington.

Spanning the U.S.–Canadian border is Peace Arch State Park, home to the 72-foot Peace Arch that symbolizes nearly two centuries of peace between the two countries. This lovely landscaped park has thousands of flowers and shrubs plus seasonal displays of sculptures and art.

Located on the Semiahmoo Spit is a world-class resort featuring a marina, pool, spa, fitness center, restaurants and championship golf courses. Semiahmoo Spit is also home to Semiahmoo Park, which features more than 300 acres of tideland and approximately 1.5 miles of level pathways ideal for such outdoor adventures as walking, biking, rollerblading, kayaking, clamming, sand sculpting, kite flying and picnicking. A historic seasonal ferry called the Plover shuttles passengers between Semiahmoo and the downtown area of Blaine.

Blaine and nearby Birch Bay are gaining an international reputation as a birding haven. The tide pools, estuaries and waterways attract thousands of geese, ducks, gulls, loons and shorebirds each year and recently made the Audubon Society’s list as one of the state’s top birding destinations. Popular Drayton Harbor attracts a high population of loons as well as endangered species such as the bald eagle, peregrine falcon and marbled murrelet.

Population: 4,665
