WELCOME TO Happy Valley
A peaceful wooded paradise in the center of a city.
Treasured for its quirky character and relaxed vibes, Happy Valley is home to an eclectic blend of older folks and the more reserved college crowd. Nestled in between Western Washington University and the bustling Fairhaven neighborhood, Happy Valley offers a quieter residential setting that’s close to excellent Bellingham amenities. Don’t forget hidden local gems like Super Duper Burger and Teriyaki, bodega-like shops, and Whatcom Farm Co-op tucked away in the gorgeous valley.
With a population that leans toward being outdoors-y, activities like gardening, exploring trails, and spending time outside are all popular. The neighborhood is known for being clean, private, safe, and brimming with unique character. Residents tend to be environmentally focused, and their conscientiousness tends to show in the care of their homes. Local schools are excellent, and often within easy, safe walking distance.
