Hard to find work there...so, unless you have a trustfund or planning to go to U-Dub or Western, make sure you have plenty of money to live on through the winter. Plenty of Hippies and Anarcho-Syndicalists to keep you busy while sitting on the sidewalks. The food bank offers mostly organic food, if you get hungry.
Its beautiful, for sure, and just a short ferry ride away from the San Juan Islands.
Cool Spots: The Horseshoe Lounge. The waterfall under the bridge. B-52 tavern, of course. Mt. Baker hot springs. The punk rock mexican food joint. One record shop in town on Railroad Ave. (From what I remember of a few years ago).
