As I wrote in my last post, Whatcom is an outdoor lovers Haven. It also is home to many breweries for the beer connoisseurs out there. Let’s explore some great place to enjoy the outdoors, whether you hike, bike trail run, or fish. We will follow it up with few breweries to check out after the great outdoors.
Some of the must see/must do hikes include:
Whatcom Falls Park– We love this because not only is there something for everyone and every fitness level, but there is water! With three and a half miles of trails, you can explore the creek, meadows or wind through forests.
Lake Padden Park– Located in Bellingham, a great place to catch some fish….rainbow, cutthroat and kokanee trout.
Chuckanut Mountain Park-Just south ofBellingham you will find the Chuckanut Mountains. Here you will find numerous trails that access beautiful forests, waterfalls, streams and views of surrounding mountain areas.
Find more at Whatcom County Parks
Visit any one of the above areas, and get a little exercise out in the beautiful Washington weather, even if it rains a bit! And then head on over to one of our local breweries to enjoy a frosty cold one or a great burger (meat or veggie)
Chuckanut Brewery and Kitchen– Great award winning beers, and locally sourced delicious food
Aslan Brewery– A fave. We love the Batch 15 IPA and the Portobella fries
Boundry Bar Brewery and Bistro– Smoked Salmon Chowder-yum! Especially if you get a little rained on!
There are many awesome places to check out in Whatcom. The area boasts laid back fun. With a variety of outdoor activities and places to visit, we Whatcom should be “Here I Come!”
