New in Town: A Birthday Getaway in Bellingham

Bellingham fit the bill with a short travel time (about 2 hours north by car), a dog-friendly waterfront hotel (with a spa!) and a quirky downtown area flush with charm, microbreweries and eateries that flaunt their use of locally sourced flour. We lucked out with some sun on our first afternoon in town, and our room at the Chrysalis Inn & Spa delivered sweeping views of Bellingham Bay as the sun set over the San Juan Islands. I knew we'd made the right call when I realized the window bench was big enough for me to sprawl out and read with a pup curled up beside me, which I highly recommend between baths and visits to the eucalyptus steam room.

        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.
