Getting to and from the Cascadia funtimes

Semiahmoo Resort

Blaine, WA.

Planes & Trains

Blaine is a beautiful departure from some of our larger Cascadian tech city centers. The closest airport is Bellingham International Airport.

If you are traveling by air, we recommend flying into Seattle's SeaTac airport, catching the light rail to the Intl District Station using the Link Light Rail, walking over to the Amtrak King Street Station and hopping the Hacker Bus or Hacker Train with your fellow Cascadian friends.

walk from Link Light Rail stop to Amtrak

HackerBus and HackerTrain tickets are now available! Please see the HackerTrain page for full details and schedule for the various Cascadian centers you are traveling in from.

If you're unable to make the Hacker Train departure, Amtrak provides a few options to getting you to your destination at Bellingham Amtrak Station (BEL).


Automobiles

If you're traveling by car, there will be ample free parking at our venue. Point your final navigation for the event to Semiahmoo Resort at 9565 Semiahmoo Parkway in Blaine, WA.


Buses

In addition to the Cascadia HackerBus and HackerTrain options, bus service to and from Bellingham is available via either BoltBus or GreyHound.

If you travel to Bellingham by bus, you will need to arrange your own ride service from the bus station to Semiahmoo Resort.

While Bellingham and Blaine do not have an Uber presence, these cities do have plenty of well-recommended cab companies: Rommel's Taxis can be reached via phone at 1 (360) 510-1177 or Your Cab Company at 1 (360) 746-4943 and are usually very responsive.
