Things to do in Lynden in the rain

Rainy Day Adventures with Girlfriends: Exploring Lynden’s Best Local Gems

Get ready for an unforgettable adventure with your girlfriends on a rainy day in Lynden! Wondering what to do? Look no further, as I’ve created the perfect itinerary for a fun-filled day.

First stop: Petals and Blooms Home Decor! This small family-run business in Ferndale is a hidden gem, offering the best farmhouse and modern home and garden decor items. You’ll love shopping for seasonal and everyday home decor, and be sure to tell Erin and Bre McGuire that the Oostema’s sent you over! They’ll welcome you with open arms and show you their fantastic selection.

Next, head to Home Farm Family in Birch Bay, a charming family-owned farm with the most fantastic farm stand and opportunities for picking your own berries, flowers, and produce. You can gather fresh berries to make jam later on, or create a beautiful bouquet of flowers for someone special. The U-Pick farm is a fun and educational outing for all ages!

Feeling hungry? Stop by Bellewood Farms, a family-operated apple farm committed to growing and producing high-quality local fruit. With 31 acres of high-density orchard, you’ll find approximately 25,000 apple trees and 21 different varieties, including their premier Honeycrisp. Take a stroll through their UPICK apple orchard, pumpkin patch, and corn maze, and enjoy a delicious lunch with stunning views. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for their Holiday Weekends with Free Santa Pictures in December!

After lunch, take a few hours to explore the Lynden Pioneer Museum, located just a seven-minute drive from Oostema Farmstead. This charming and fascinating museum houses impressive collections, authentic dioramas, and a good dose of small-town charm. You’ll get a glimpse at what pioneer life might have been like in Whatcom County, with a life-sized replica of a homestead and a diorama of a typical pioneer kitchen.

End your adventure with a delicious breakfast at Avenue Bread, where you can try the mouth-watering Eggenues. Check out the Waples Building, originally built in 1914 and reconstructed after a fire in 2008. Today, it’s home to Village Books, Cheeks, Overflow Taps, and Bellingham Baby Co. Or head to Rustlers Front Street Grill for another favorite, especially if you want to try the Dutch Pancake called Pannekoeken.

You and your girlfriends are sure to have an amazing time exploring Lynden and creating unforgettable memories!
