Fetch your bags exit the arrivals hall at Westsound, WA Airport (WSX), and collect your rental car. Which one you drive off in depends on what your travel itinerary looks like. If you’ll be mainly driving in downtown Bellingham, around 25 miles from the terminal, select something zippy and small. A compact car with nimble handling will suit those busy city streets. But with a wealth of things to see, like the picturesque rocky coastlines of the region, there’s a good chance you’ll rack up those miles. A larger vehicle, like a full-size car or an SUV, will make lengthier road trips a joy.
