Chuckunut Drive


Visitors linger to watch the ever-changing seascape from high above the shoreline, hope for a sunset, and take advantage of the drive whenever they are in the neighborhood.


For a beautiful and slow paced alternative to Interstate 5 that connects Bellingham to Skagit Valley, it is highly recommended you take Chuckanut Drive (Route 11).

Chuckanut Drive offers beautiful views of the bay, country, island, mountains, and coast. Plus, you can get out of your car to eat fresh oysters, peer into tide pools on a secluded beach, or hike to a mountain summit, all right off the byway.

Don't forget to stop by the Oyster Bar along your drive!
