Getting Here

As the saying goes, getting here is half the fun. Trains, planes, automobiles, buses, boats and ferries are great way to make your trek to the peak of the Pacific Northwest. Bellingham is easy to reach by car along Interstate 5 or by taking the scenic route along Chuckanut Drive. It is also a popular port for pleasure boating on the Salish Sea and services are provided daily by Amtrak and Bellingham International Airport.

Always good to know in advance! Check our Travel Advisory page for up to date information and links to other resources you might need. Seeking the latest border crossing requirements to travel north into Canada, or south into the United States? Information for Canadians and Americans both, here.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
