Bellingham, Washington: A Long Wine Weekend

When I travel, even for a short weekend getaway, I want it all. I admit that sounds greedy, but in a place like Bellingham, it's not unreasonable. My summer weekend in this scenic Northwest Washington city includes a wine festival, outstanding eats, a country drive to some standout farms as well as delving into the city's sometimes-sordid past. And that just scratches the surface.

I time my trip in August with the Fairhaven Vino in the Village event and the Bellingham Northwest Wine Festival. If you detect a theme, you’re spot on. Vino in the Village takes place on Thursday evening, so I get a jump on the weekend and arrive before 5:00 p.m. to check in at Fairhaven Village Inn, in the center of the action. Vino is a walking tour—wine glass and map in hand—with stops at merchants where wineries are dispensing tasting pours. Historic Fairhaven is walkable, artsy, charming and, on Vino night, a very affable place.
