It is situated on Bellingham Bay, which is protected by Lummi Island, Portage Island, and the Lummi Peninsula, and opens onto the Strait of Georgia. It lies west of Mount Baker and Lake Whatcom (from which it gets its drinking water) and north of the Chuckanut Mountains and Skagit Valley. Whatcom Creek runs through the center of the city.

Music scene

Supported by the presence of a large university age population, Bellingham has been home to a number of regionally and nationally noted musical groups such as: The Posies, Idiot Pilot, Death Cab for Cutie, Crayon, Crossfox, The Contra, Mono Men, Sharpie, No-Fi Soul Rebellion, Federation X, The Trucks,[8] Shook Ones, Megatron,[9] Yogoman Burning Band, Black Eyes and Neckties, Dandelion Junk Queens, Black Breath,[10] The Pale Pacific, Immoral Intent, Clambake, and the recently disbanded USS Horsewhip all originate from the area. Local independent record labels include Estrus Records, Clickpop Records, Murder Mountain Records, New Regard Media and Boogie Man Records.

Film scene

Bellingham also has a burgeoning independent film community, which is supported by the Whatcom Film Association, a local group of film appreciators with over 1500 members and the Northwest Film School, a hands-on filmmaking program. While not as large-scale or well-financed as some of Seattle's independent film efforts, Bellingham's annual NW Projections Film Festival has grown substantially in attendance since its creation in 1999. Several award-winning short films originated in Bellingham, as well as a handful of feature films.

Local theatre

Bellingham is home to the Bellingham Theatre Guild. It is also home to the Upfront Theatre, an improv comedy venue established by Bellingham resident Ryan Stiles (Whose Line Is It Anyway?).

It is also home to the historic Mount Baker Theater.

Future development

In March 2005, Kiplinger's Personal Finance named Bellingham one of the top retirement cities in the nation.[11] Purchase price of homes has risen, however rent has remained relatively stable. Many of the condominiums recently built as a result of the demand for affordable housing have subsequently become rental units.

Bellingham has seen a resurgence of real-estate development as house prices climb, caused in part by new residents moving in to the community. In order to accommodate this growth, new properties have sprung up all over the city, including the Downtown, Fairhaven, Happy Valley, Cordata, and Barkley neighborhoods. The city has reiterated their commitment to developing a wide range of housing options for all income categories, while retaining the integrity of existing communities. Annexation of surrounding farmland and county wilderness has been kept to a minimum due to public concern for environmental preservation, but several controversies have risen over the city's decisions to counteract the loss of land by allowing taller buildings in the city core, major new development on previously undeveloped land, and a lack of parks and open spaces in some of the more recently developed areas.
