Bellingham, Washington is a unique mix of human vitality and natural geography, located where the mountains meet the sea, with an engaged and motivated community. Located between Vancouver, BC and Seattle, we've got the dynamic vibe you'd expect from a city, and also offer world-class cycling, snow and water sports, hiking, and much more within an hour's drive. The Heliotrope is at the center of it all, located less than a mile from Bellingham's downtown core and nearby nature. We offer local knowledge to inform both your urban and outdoor adventures, and provide a haven at the heart of things to settle in after you've gone out.
