South Hill is a lovely residential neighborhood located between Bellingham Bay and Western Washington University. The homes are a nice mix of craftsman style cottages and stately old mansions. Most homes overlook Bellingham Bay offering a unique viewing opportunity to enjoy sunsets, 4th of July fireworks over the Bay and Sunday sailboat races. Given its desirable views and location, homes here tend to have the highest relative prices to any neighborhood in Bellingham.

The lower section of South Hill is home to several condominium developments that line both State Street and the Boulevard. This area is the main route between Bellingham's historic Fairhaven District and the downtown. Below the condos you will find Boulevard Park, a beautiful place to enjoy an evening picnic and water views. It is also a popular destination for bikers and trail runners
