BELLINGHAM Ranked 11th by National Geographic as one of the top 50 cities to live and play. Its setting has made Bellingham popular: The sheltered waters (both salt and fresh) are perfect for kayaking and sailing, and the tall mountains are ideal for hiking, mountain climbing, snowboarding, and skiing. Tallest of these peaks is volcanic Mount Baker (10,778 feet), which rises about 40 miles east of town at the edge of North Cascades National Park.
Yet even though it lies just 18 miles below the 49th parallel, Bellingham's climate is mild enough with infrequent frosts that a species of palm is hardy and camellias flourish. In spring, urban lawns are covered with daffodils and tulips; summer brings strawberries, blueberries, and cascades of roses; in autumn, apple, pear, and plum trees are weighed down by bushels of fruit. Winter can turn cold, but lowland snow is rare. Learn more about Bellingham here: http://www.bellingham-subdued-excitement.com/
