Best strains for spring recreation or cleaning

Whether you’re going for a stroll in the park, a challenging hike, or just sitting in the backyard soaking up the sun, cannabis is a great companion for many activities. It can also be a great addition to indoor spring activities, such as deep spring cleaning. Here are some of our top picks for spring recreation and cleaning. 

Flora d’Explora 

A sativa hybrid cross between Mexican, Thai, and Afghani landrace strains, Flora d’Explora is an intense strain that can set you up for a day of springtime adventure. Known to induce a sense of creativity and euphoria, this strain is also known to help relax users as well. Take a walk through the forest or clean out that desk you’ve been putting off with the help of this springtime strain. 

Golden Pineapple 

Another daytime favorite, Golden Pineapple is a flavorful sativa strain made from a cross between Golden Goat and Pineapple Kush. The fruity strain provides a sense of calm and relaxation along with euphoria. It’s an uplifting option that pairs well with any outdoor experience and can lend well to spring cleaning, as well. 


A sativa dominant hybrid, Narnia is great choice to descend into fantasy land while enjoying the warm spring sunshine or cleaning out the junk that’s accumulated around the house. It’s a combination of Jack Herer and Trainwreck, boasting citrusy, pine flavors with a touch of lavender and spice. Known as a motivating strain that contributes to feelings of bliss and imagination, Narnia is an excellent choice for any daytime spring activity. 

Happy Trails 

This sativa leaning hybrid is uplifting and motivational for any spring endeavors. A cross between White Cap and Dragon Lady, it’s known to lift spirits and is a great accompaniment to a beach day, walk through the park, or deep clean of your refrigerator. Whatever the case, this strain wishes happy trails to you on your spring adventures. 

Best Bellingham parks and beaches for spring 

Now that spring is in swing, here are some of our top picks to soak up the season in the city of subdued excitement. 

Larrabee State Park 

Gorgeous any time of the year, Larrabee State Park is a perfect place to visit in the spring. Washington’s first state park, Larrabee has more than 2,700 acres to camp and explore. Check out the gorgeous views of Puget Sound and Samish Bay and trek through the beautiful trails that span over 14 miles for mixed use. If you’re a fan of trains, you’ll likely see a few roll through during your visit. 

Whatcom Falls 

Who doesn’t love a good waterfall? Like all of Bellingham’s beautiful parks and beaches, Whatcom Falls is worth a visit year-round. But we think it’s especially nice during the spring when the flowers are budding and the birds are singing. 

You can walk through the 3+ miles of trails in the park to see the waterfalls and swimming holes. You can also wind through the forest or frolic through an open meadow. This park has a little bit of everything, making it a great choice for a day of adventure. 

Teddy Bear Cove 

A beautiful Bellingham beach, Teddy Bear Cove is a wonderful choice for a day spent in the spring sun. You’ll need to hike a bit from the North Chuckanut Mountain trailhead to get down to the waterfront, but it’s worth the trip if you’re prepared. You can explore the two small beaches and even find some sea creatures to admire (but don’t touch!) This is another great option for train lovers—but be sure to cross the tracks with caution. 

Locust Beach 

Although it’s often considered a hidden gem, most Bellingham locals are familiar with the magic that Locust Beach holds. It sits on the north side of the Bellingham Bay and is lined by a long shoreline perfect for a daytime stroll or sunset picnic. There is a long staircase needed to get down to the beach, so plan accordingly if you’re packing anything in and be sure to wear comfortable shoes. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can walk out to the Nooksack River Delta and enjoy even more beautiful water views. 

Little Squalicum Park 

Ideal for a sunny spring day, Lake Squalicum Park is a great place to walk, have a picnic, or watch the sunset. It’s recently been rehabilitated to clean up some of the waste and improve the overall beach experience. As the name suggests, this park is smaller than others but still promises a good time if you’re just looking to kick back and enjoy the sunshine and beach views.
