Naturally Charming

Spring 2003: AARP The Magazine lists Bellingham second among 15 “dream towns” for boomers looking to settle down in a new locale. Citing the city’s “natural charm, affordable neighborhoods and recreational opportunities,” the May/June issue rated Bellingham second only to the Fort Collins/Loveland area of Colorado.

In May 2003, Men’s Journal also called Bellingham one of the 50 best small cities in which to live.
