Lynden

Lynden

Lynden is home to Washington State’s largest Dutch settlement and is the heart of the region’s farmland. Upon reaching the four-block span of Front Street, known as Dutch Old Town, visitors are greeted by a 72-foot tall working windmill. Waitresses in restaurants bustle about in native dress as they serve tasty Dutch meals and baked treats with a warm smile and friendly service.

Nearby, the Lynden Pioneer Museum gives a glimpse of the “simpler” life in the earlier days of this farming community. The museum features one of the largest collections of antique buggies in the U.S. plus a two-story replica of Lynden at the turn of the last century.

This is also a village that loves to celebrate life’s simpler things. Throughout the year the community rolls out the red carpet with authentic festivals and events that showcases their heritage, like the Northwest Raspberry Festival and the Farmers Day Parade. The granddaddy celebration of them all is the Northwest Washington Fair each August. Rated one of the cleanest fairs in the state, you’ll enjoy animal displays, home grown arts, food stalls plus top name entertainers.

Everywhere you turn, you’ll get the feeling that this quaint village truly appreciates your visit.

Population: 11,350
