The neighborhood is perhaps better known for its beautifully preserved historical buildings from the boom days of the 1890s when Fairhaven boasted the best deep-water wharves in the area. Fairhaven still handles a healthy amount of ship traffic and the waterfront hosts the southernmost terminus for the Alaska Ferry. Fairhaven also serves as an access point for several waterfront parks, trails and the scenic and historic Chuckanut Drive and the recreational areas south of the city. In a town already known for its liberal leanings, Fairhaven maintains a reputation as a bohemian enclave of students, artists and granolas. The nature of the inhabitants is reflected in the cafes, bookstores and unique restaurants which are, for the most part, housed in Romanesque brick buildings. In the summer and winter months alike, Fairhaven is widely recognized as one of the most charming districts in the Pacific Northwest.
