Bellingham, and the larger Whatcom County area, are known for stunning scenery and world class recreation. Beautiful bays, Larrabee State Park, and hundreds of Islands are a short hop away, accounting for the 1400 boats in Squalicum Harbor and countless kayaks in garages throughout Bellingham. The North Cascades mountains provide wonderful hiking trails, skiing, camping, climbing, photography opportunities, and more. Along with natural resources, the Bellingham/Whatcom county area also has a lot of resourceful, considerate people, some of whom are running a wide variety of small businesses. The mission of this website is to help connect the wonderful people in the area, including those that come to visit, with each other and with local businesses that can meet their needs.
