Boulevard Park in Bellingham, WA
It can be easily missed if you are driving too fast, so slow down and take tiny Bayview Street down the bluff from State Street in Bellingham, and discover the hidden gem Boulevard Park. It's a long strip of grass covered foreshore with walking and biking trails along Bellingham Bay.
At the south end of the park, the shoreline trail continues over water on a boardwalk. This connects to Historic Fairhaven with its quaint shops and restaurants.
The walkway is a great spot for walking, biking, sitting to watch the ever changing waters of the bay, fantastic sunsets, and even crabbing I've heard.
There are even plans to connect the north end of the park to downtown Bellingham's new waterfront redevelopment with a similar over-water walkway in the future.
On this trip to Boulevard Park I met a fellow blogger JoAnn from Scene Through My Eyes at Woods Coffee. This popular coffee spot is within the park and has great views of Bellingham Bay. On cold days, come inside and snuggle up near the fire. On fine days, the outdoor patio is the best. -- Margy
