Blaine , Washington is the most northwesterly town in Whatcom County and is the busiest United States and Canadian border crossing in Washington. The population of Blaine is estimated to be around 4,800. Blaine is less than two hours from Seattle and a half hour from Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. The Peace Arch monument, located in the Peace Arch State park, commemorates the signing of the Treaty of Ghent in 1814 and signifying lasting peace between these two countries. The monument is built exactly on the United States and Canadian border and flies the flags of the United States and Canada. Every year, the Peach Arch State Park features "Hands Across the Border" ceremony. The Historic Washington Foot Passenger Ferry, "The Plover", also calls Blaine home. This ferry takes tourists across the bay to the Semiahmoo spit and the Inn at Semiahmoo, a world class resort community featuring an Arnold Palmer designed championship golf course. Boating and fishing are popular activities in and around Blaine. Other activities include hiking and biking on the Coast Millennium Trail as well as nearby Birch Bay State Park.

Blaine Weather & Climate

Northwest Washington , between Semiahmoo Bay and Lumnai Bay, there is a body of water called Birch Bay. The climate in this area is temperate and greatly influenced by the Pacific Ocean. It's generally mild, often referred to as "The Banana Belt of the Northwest." Although the rainy season can last as long as eight months, it is usually about six months long, leaving the area with a late spring and mild, pleasant summer. Many long weeks of short and cloudy days are commonplace in winter. Summers are quite dry however. This region is occasionally subject to unusual and harsh weather due to an upper level trough that drives down cold Arctic air from the Canadian interior. This cold air mass can collide with a Gulf of Alaska cold front and create high winds, ice, snow, or heavy rains.
