Cedars RV Resort
Surrounded by the natural beauty of the great Northwest and just a short drive south of the Canadian border, Cedars RV Resort is the ideal spot for an outdoor lover’s vacation. After you’ve tried the resort’s amenities, sightseeing, and the nearby saltwater beaches of the Strait of Georgia, there are also a casino, bingo hall, golf courses, and shopping to be enjoyed.
Of special interest in neighboring Ferndale is the Hovander Homestead. Surrounded by a large park, the homestead features an interpretive center, milk house, children’s farm zoo, gardens, barn and house. The 1903 restored home is furnished with antiques, and the barn contains equipment from the era.
To the south of the resort is Bellingham, with its splendid view of the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, the harbor in Bellingham Bay, and the 172 offshore San Juan Islands. The city is also the southern terminus of the Alaska Marine Highway, as well as a port for ferries to the islands and cruise ships bound for southeast Alaska. Also of interest are the sculptures by international and regional artists at the 2.5-acre Big Rock Gardens of Art.
While you’re in the vicinity, take the scenic drive east into Nooksack Valley to visit Mount Baker Vineyards in Deming. Located at the foot of Mount Baker, the vineyard produces grapes used in 21 specialty wines. Travel north of the resort to Blaine, located just south of the Canadian border and British Columbia. You’ll want to visit the Peace Arch State and Provincial Park, built in remembrance of more than a century of harmony between the United States and Canada.
You’ll certainly want to visit Vancouver, the crown jewel of western Canada, and plan to spend some time in Chinatown, second only to San Francisco as the largest ethnic area of its kind in North America. Try one of the dozens of restaurants, browse through the gift shops, and stroll through the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, built in honor of Vancouver’s 100th birthday.
