Bellingham has been scoring some high-profile nods from Sunset magazine, where it's listed among the West's 24 Best Places to Live in the February 2014 issue.

The City of Subdued Excitement joined Bozeman, Mont.; Bend, Ore.; and Chico, Calif., as the Best Places to Reboot Your Life, with the magazine citing the area's tech startups and farm-to-table restaurants. The magazine's travel section highlighted the Mount Baker Wilderness and its Love Letters section included a funky homage to the mountain village of Glacier penned by Paellaworks catering in Maple Falls.

In its January 2014 issue, Sunset chose the Whatcom Museum's acclaimed environmental art exhibit "Vanishing Ice" for its top 10 Best of the West activities.
