The Small Town Charm and Lifestyle of Vancouver, WA

June 30, 2021
Published by

If you crave the metropolitan lifestyle but also desire small town charm, then consider owning a new home in Vancouver, WA. Located across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon, Vancouver is a fast growing city with an important economic presence that includes high tech, service and manufacturing industries.  In addition, the state of Washington was the #1 ranked state in the country by U.S. News & World Report in 2019.

Part of Vancouver’s charm is the architectural mix of both historic and contemporary neighborhoods, and has recently undergone a revitalization. The city offers numerous options for dining, shopping, art galleries, wineries and green spaces.

Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy living in Vancouver, WA because of ongoing seasonal and annual activities. At downtown’s Esther Short Park, discover summertime outdoor concerts at the amphitheater, an outdoor water park, and a community plaza that hosts annual festivals like the 4 Days of Aloha and County Fair. Visit one of the well-stocked, downtown farmers markets to find local produce, high-end crafts, food, art and entertainment.

Hike on 44 miles of multi-use trails ideal for daily exercise and family dog walks. In addition, there are plenty of playgrounds for children, and specific parks for picnics, dogs, bird watching, and even mountain bike riding.

Water enthusiasts will love the Columbia River for kayaking, canoeing or a chance to fish for steelhead, salmon and sturgeon.

Enjoy a hike, bike ride, or camping trip at the scenic Columbia River Gorge. Find your peaceful perch at Lacamas Lake, or if golf is more your speed, improve your A-game at Harwood Golf Course or Camas Meadows Golf Club.

During the wintertime, there are both holiday and historical events including outdoor ugly sweater pub crawls, festive caroling, and after-dark lantern tours.

Breweries and wineries are another big draw and a staple attraction for those who live in Vancouver, WA. From tastings to taprooms, visit over two dozen local breweries and twenty-five wineries and vineyards throughout the area. Combine your appreciation for both beverages during a few of the Craft Beer and Wine Fests held throughout the year.

With so much to enjoy, Vancouver is great for a visit, but even better to live. Live this lifestyle with a new home in Vancouver, WA, at Woodside Creek.
