Welcome to Cascades Best

We live, shop, eat, and play in amazing Northwest Washington. The Bellingham Herald is presenting Cascades Best in 2024 to engage the community in celebrating the places, restaurants, and local businesses we love.

We are proud of the voter turnout and engagement from local businesses. Cascade’s Best had over 3,250 businesses, organizations, and individuals competing to be named in the top three spots of 205 categories.


During our voting, more than 84,000 votes were cast, an amazing response in our first year and a testament to how customers, fans, and friends feel about their favorite local businesses and the pride they have for the Northwest Washington area.


Producing a contest this size takes a dedicated local team and committed businesses. They, along with all our advertisers made this possible.


We could not be prouder to salute and pay tribute to the great businesses that were voted the best in their individual categories. Thank you to all the folks who took the time to vote. We encourage you to explore and engage with our winners. Some may be familiar, and some may be new to you. All will welcome your business. Please make sure to congratulate them for being voted Cascade’s Best!
