Re: Bellingham, Washington: Worth retiring in????

I heard on the news this morning (local Seattle news) that Bellingham is the 2nd most livable city - can't remember the first. It is a nice area - with lots of outdoor activities - close to the mountains, sea and San Juan Islands...also between Seattle and Vancouver for a taste of the city.

OrchidFlower you might want to check out Poulsbo as a less expensive alternate to Bellingham. The ambiance isn't quite the same, unless you are into funky Norse, but the housing costs are lower. Enroute to there from Seattle there a couple folks on the Board who you could visit.
