Fodor's Review

Down a flight of steps behind the Whatcom Museum's 1892 City Hall building, this park pays tribute to Bellingham's fishing industry. Self-guided Marine Heritage Center tours take you through a salmon's life cycle, winding past hatcheries, aquarium tanks, and fish ladders. A boardwalk route from Holly Street leads to the ponds and a waterfall, where Bellingham was founded in 1852, when it was then known Whatcom. Note that salmon runs occur annually around September and October.
