Bellingham is on another list. Here’s what a travel publication thinks of this area

Bellingham continues to land on “Best Places” lists, with the latest coming from a travel publication.

The most recent accolades come from TravelMag.com, which lists Bellingham among the 30 most charming small cities in the U.S. In its article TravelMag.com noted that tourism is one of the mainstays of the city as the waterfront undergoes waterfront redevelopment.

“But it’s the great outdoors beyond that draw most people to Bellingham. Mount Baker is an excellent ski resort in winter, while the North Cascades National Park to which it belongs is a remarkable expanse of montane wilderness,” the article stated.

According to Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism, in 2019 this area had more than three million visitors supporting 7,443 jobs. In total, visitors spent $555 million in Whatcom County in 2019, an increase of 4.3% compared to the previous year.

Bellingham was the only city in Washington state to make the list.

        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.
