Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism launches mobile destination passes for county


Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism debuted two mobile passes for tourists and residents alike to explore Whatcom County’s farm-to-table dining and cultural destinations. This comes after the nonprofit released a similar mobile pass called the 49th Parallel Ports Pass that allows people to explore Blaine and Point Roberts.

Participants use Bandwango, a travel technology platform, to download the Quest Pass on their phone for each of the three destination routes. The free passes offer discounts, promotions and prizes once someone has checked into a participating location, according to a July 26 Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism press release.

“There are many attractions still struggling to rebound from the pandemic, and this was our investment to help drive visitors to more places, learn more, love more about our region, stay longer and come back,” wrote Amy Guerra, marketing director for Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism, in a statement.

The Farm-to-Table Trail brings users to farm stands, wineries and farm-to-fork restaurants in the county. Check-ins through Wednesday, August 31 count toward a prize, according to the release.

The Culture Crawl brings users to museums, theaters, bookstores and similar locations throughout the county. The first 200 people to do six stops receive a present, according to the release.
