This city is truly the city of Subdued Excitement! It has a vibrant culture like what Seattle has, but with less crowdedness. This city is also filled with multiple beautiful places to hike! Particularly Oyster Dome and Mt. Baker. Definitely, recommend to go to college here also because of the college town feel that it has, and you can see a lot of coffee shops around here too! There are some hiccups to it, however, downtimes can be sketchy at night sometimes, so stay safe guys. But nightlife is really nice with all the restaurants, bars, nightclubs around Bellingham.
