Nooksack, with a population of 1,163 in 2009, is located at the intersection of State Highways 9 and 544, just 20 minutes northeast of Bellingham and 15 minutes from two border crossings leading into British Columbia. The metropolitan pleasures of Seattle (2 hours away) and Vancouver, B.C.

Baker and saltwater marinas are less than an hour away from Nooksack.

For a wider selection and "big-box" stores, residents can head to Bellingham, home of the historic Fairhaven District. Looking for a mall experience? Go to Bellingham's Bellis Fair mall, which has five anchor stores, more than 140 specialty shops and a six-screen theater. For live entertainment, the Mount Baker Theatre in Bellingham attracts top-caliber performers.
Bellingham is served by Amtrak and multiple airlines, including Delta Airlines, Horizon Air and Allegiant Air. The Whatcom Transportation Authority provides bus service between Nooksack and Bellingham.
Nooksack also is close to Bellingham's educational institutions, including Western Washington University, which has approximately 14,000 full- and part-time students.
