Family escape to Bellingham
One nearby solution is Bellingham, a small city boasting lots of things to do, including a fabulous array of parks to explore and other attractions for adventurous Northwest families.
Bellingham’s natural areas feel refreshingly wild, while the city — encompassing both downtown and the historic Fairhaven neighborhood — offers a dynamic small-town vibe with plenty to see and do. The relatively short 90-minute drive from Seattle means it’s far enough away to feel like an escape, but close enough to use less than a tank of gas.
