Welcome to LiveWhatcom.com
LIVE... Bellingham/Whatcom County is a unique and wonderful place to live. Living in a place that people only dream of living, a place found in magazines. The true Puget Sound Northwest experience. A place where people live because they want to, not because they have to. The green and magnificent terrain and natural wonders are all here: ocean, lakes, mountains, rivers, islands. The list of activities are endless. Whether you enjoy finding that perfect cup of coffee and a fresh danish or a different golf course for every day of the week, it's here for you. This is a place of expression and diversity with people freely sharing and experiencing the arts, their faith and political views. That is what Whatcom County is, and that is why we choose to Live Whatcom.
WORK... There are many jobs available that provide higher than average income, but many people take jobs that may not make them rich, but allow them to enjoy and participate in all that this area has to offer. Whatcom County is a hub for entrepreneurs and people that choose their own lifestyle. This is becoming a place of great schools and teachers fresh out of Western Washington University standing in line for jobs, because they want to stay here and live in this area.
THRIVE... The people here seem to enjoy life in a different way. Rush hour lasts about 20 minutes on only one major interstate highway. When you are working and living in a place where you can be minutes away from your favorite hobby or spectacular vista, there is something very healthy and wonderful about that. You can't help but thrive in this kind of environment. Whatcom County is a place where if you choose, there is no end to what you can experience and the opportunities in all aspects of life are endless. There are not too many places in this country or the world that can say that. If your desire is to live life to the fullest, enjoy what you do, and thrive at life... Look no further than Whatcom County. It is the place to be. Live Whatcom.
