Welcome (Back) to Bellingham Part 1 - Get Outside

For the week of June 6, 2021

Scenario: You’re in town on business, or a conference, or have heard lots of good things about the city by the Salish Sea. You’ve checked into your AirBNB or your hotel room and unpacked your bags. *Now what?*

Basic Bellingham Fundamentals

Everything in Bellingham is accessible via Interstate 5, exits 250 to 258. Highway traffic (during this COVID era) mostly flows normally, even during rush hour. But when there is a stalled vehicle or an accident on the side of the road, traffic can be backed up for miles. Check your maps app for RED before using the highway.

The main arterial roads off I-5 exits in Bellingham are, from south to north:
Old Fairhaven Parkway
Samish Way
Lakeway Drive
James Street
Sunset Drive
Meridian Street
Northwest Avenue
Bakerview Drive
