    The town of Bellingham contains endless possiblites. Just about a mile or two from campus is a thriving down town area that is full of neat local shops and restaurants. It is truly a beautiful area with many job opporutunites and fun activities. Not to mention the many outdoor parks that are breath-takingly beautiful. Only a few examples of some are, Oyster Dome, Teddy Bear Cove, Whatcom Falls, and many many more. I myself have sadly only visted Oyster Dome however at the top of the hike was the most beautiful sight I have ever seen. The shades of red that cover the Bellingham skies over the ocean when the sunsets, make your heart melt as much as the sun in the sky. Bellingham is truly one of nature's gifts that keeps you very much occupied.

    Hikes! There are so many trails, you can go to the shore and swim, the town life is fantastic and poetic, there are great local plays and poetry readings and amazing small local restaurants.

    There are many things on and off campus to do for fun. Bellingham is a great city to go outside and explore rain or shine! Walking through campus is always a beautiful relaxing activity but the rock wall, closeness of the bay, and many biking trails are only a glimpse into what this city has to offer.

    Literally, anything you can think of. If you're an outdoorsy type, not only is Bellingham a great place to go hiking, rock climbing, and kayaking, but there's a center on campus that holds outdoor events where you can rent kayaks, or any sort of sport equipment, for ridiculously cheap. Literally, less than 5 bucks to rent a kayak for a day. There's also a ton of music events always going on, and at the bigger concerts, WWU students get super discounts on tickets. I've been going to all the campus events whenever I get bored, and they're usually pretty fun.

    Bellingham has a lot of cute coffee shops to go to and a lot of activities to participate in. One thing Western has is the Dead Parrot's Society. They are the school improve team and they have hilarious shows quite often.

    I like downtown a lot. Lots of unique, local businesses which probably don't impress kids from Portland, but I am used to being surrounded by only giant franchises so I am absolutely ecstatic to go downtown and see all the small shops and restaurants and know that I'm supporting the local economy with my purchases. There is a pretty cool film scene--the Pickford is a neat place to watch independents. There are some neat museums and exhibits, an aquatic center, lots of parks. It's also very popular for students to go hiking and skiing and other outdoor sports on the weekends.

    Downtown Bellingham is really fun, and tuition comes with a bus pass so its really easy to get around! The underground coffee house is really fun as well. They have open mic night every week.

    Downtown Bellingham is fantastic, however, dangerous at night. Always travel in pairs and look out for one another. I have two tattoos from a shop in downtown Bellingham that have changed my life. I had more fun and experienced much more downtown, rather than at school.

    I like to sit in the sun and take in all the beauty around me, or go sit in the underground coffee house and read or meet new people
