School is back in session but the summer sun continues to shine on the Pacific Northwest. With a strong Canadian dollar and plenty of places to spend it across the border, more and more locals are checking out our neighbours to the south in Whatcom County.
Whatcom County consists of Point Roberts, Bellingham, Blaine, Chuckanut Drive, Lummi Island, Birch Bay and more. There’s much more to it than Target and Trader Joe’s. You can go on a wine tour, check out the local farmers market, do a bike tour, visit a cultural food festival… and that’s all just in September.
I recently contacted their tourism organization to come up with a unique giveaway for my readers so that they can explore more in Whatcom County.

John and I had the opportunity to spend at night at the Hotel Bellwether on our way down to Seattle and we wished we could have stayed longer.
The rooms are comfortable and luxurious, there’s a great seaside pub and restaurant downstairs, the sea wall is perfect for a stroll or jog, and you won’t want to miss the sunset over the water.
