Happy Valley to South Hill to Fairhaven

One of the best parts about living in the Bellingham area is the ability to walk and explore our beautiful neighborhoods. A particular favorite of mine is the walk from Happy Valley down Mill Avenue to Fairhaven.

A great walk any time of year, the Spring and Summer months become particularly amazing as gardens bloom, trees bud and the skies become a brilliant blue. From the corner of Mill and 21st Street, a walk to Fairhaven only takes about 15 minutes depending on how many flowers you stop to smell. As you come over the crest of South Hill, Bellingham Bay is laid out before you! With the San Juan Islands to the West and Downtown Bellingham to the East, this is a breathtaking view!

I usually wrap up my walks by heading into Tony’s Coffee  or the Harris Avenue Café in Fairhaven. Grab a locally roasted cup of coffee or a delicious breakfast before you start your walk back up the hill!
