This Small Washington Town Offers Fun for Families All Year Round

Take a family getaway to Lynden for small-town pleasures and rural recreation

You can drive to Canada and never know this gem of a town is there. But head 15 minutes northeast of Bellingham and you’ll find yourself in another world. Far from the madding (and infectious) crowd, Lynden, Washington is a cozy agricultural community tailor-made for a relaxed, all-ages, socially distanced getaway. 

“The thing about Lynden is that for recreation it’s the place to be. The Lynden community is really safe, very walkable, great for biking, very friendly — it’s really terrific for families,” says Teri Treat, general manager of The Inn at Lynden. 

Whether you’re looking for an uncrowded small-town weekend, want a more rural experience, or need to spend unmasked time in the great outdoors, Lynden makes a good base.
