Bellingham is one of the Best Places To Live

Bellingham is a lush, green, rapidly growing and typically Pacific Northwest city about half way between Seattle and Vancouver. Its legacy, still in force to a degree, is as a thriving lumber and paper-mill town and seaport for outbound forest products. Today, the beautiful setting, climate, and relatively low costs for a West Coast location are bringing many migrants to the area. The economy is making the transition from cyclical basic industries to more of a steady new-economy flavor. Some work locally, some make the lengthy commute (likely in carpools) to Seattle and especially its northern suburbs and some telecommute or run small businesses serving clients in the larger cities. There is a strong and growing base of retirees.
