Spots for Fall Color in Vancouver WA

November 10, 2022
Published by

When you choose one of our homes in Vancouver WA in the Dogwood Estates community, you’re getting a beautiful home in a fantastic location. That great location includes plenty of stunning spots in Vancouver to enjoy the colorful display that Mother Nature puts on this time of year in this idyllic region.

You don’t even have to leave the city to enjoy some fantastic fall scenery. Combine the best of autumnal colors with the majesty of 22 preserved Victorian homes for a memorable stroll along Officers Row. These carefully restored homes are part of the National Historic Register. They were built in the mid-to-late 1800s to house U.S. Army officers stationed at Vancouver Barracks. After your stroll, warm up and continue the experience at The Grant House, now a restaurant in a home built in 1850.

Whether you’re looking to do some photography or just take in the scenery, enjoying the colors of autumn reflected in water is always a wonderful way to pass the time. You can do this at the Waterfront Renaissance Trail, a five-mile path along the Columbia River. Lined with plenty of beautiful trees, this is a great spot to take a leisurely stroll, but it’s also a nice way to work in some great scenery if you’re interested in running, biking or skating. Regardless of your mode of transport, if you start at the Interstate Bridge, you can end up at  McMenamins or Beaches Restaurant for snacks, drinks, or a great meal, all with a wonderful view.

Of course, if you head to Vancouver Lake Park, you’ll have no shortage of beautiful fall scenery. With 234 acres of natural landscape, you can enjoy everything from wooded trails to walks along the lakeshore. Plus, it’s a great way to spend some time with your canine family members who will surely love all of the autumn scents, as well!

Another favorite spot to enjoy all of nature is the tranquil Salmon Creek Greenway Trail. A comfortable 3.1-mile trail follows the banks of Salmon Creek, but there are also 850 acres of forest, meadows, and ponds to enjoy all year long.

For a wonderful mix of autumn scenery and even some wildlife, Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge offers spectacular views and relaxing sounds of nature. With grasslands, forests, and wetlands, not to mention birds and even red foxes, now is the perfect time to visit the more than 5,000 acres that make up the refuge.

Whether it’s a relatively short stroll or a full-day outing, there’s always somewhere to go and enjoy the riotous colors of autumn. If you purchase one of our homes in Vancouver WA at Dogwood Estates, you’ll be perfectly situated to enjoy these scenic sites, as well as the natural beauty within the community itself.
