Birch Bay is a protected bay located between Semiahmoo Bay and Lummi Bay. It is also commonly referred to as the community near and around this body of water, but is actually not its own town. Birch Bay is approximately 100 miles north of Seattle and 35 miles south of Vancouver, BC, Canada. It was named in 1792 by Archibald Menzies, a member of the Vancouver Expedition. Vancouver's two ships used Birch Bay as an anchorage for several days. Menzies noted a number of species of birch and gave the name to the bay.

We enjoyed exploring the area that included day trips to Blaine, Bellingham, Fairhaven and a ferry boat ride from Anacortes to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. We squeezed quite a bit into our ten day stay here. Be sure to check out the photos, this is a beautiful area and the people are very friendly.
