Why You Should Live in Vancouver, WA

February 24, 2021
Published by

Considering Washington state was voted the number one state in the country in 2019 by U.S. News & World Report, it’s no surprise that plenty of people already love living here. Add in the small-town charm with big-city access that you get when you purchase one of the homes in Vancouver WA and you’ll understand why this is such an appealing place to live. Beautiful nature, great communities like the Heights at Green Mountain, and accessibility to great shopping,dining, and more make it easy to choose Vancouver, WA, as a place to call home.

Part of the reason so many people gravitate to the PNW is the wealth of outdoor activities and natural beauty. Vancouver has plenty to offer when it comes to the great outdoors. It’s easy to take advantage of the numerous hiking trails, rivers, parks, mountains, and more, without having to do much prep. Outdoor gear is de rigueur in Vancouver as people stop in at a local coffee shop or bookstore before heading out on a hike, bike, or to do some nature appreciation. From the waterfalls you’ll find hidden away in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest to the ski slopes in the Cascades — and so much more in between — outdoor enthusiasts will be in paradise.

When it comes to coffee shops, restaurants, and even shopping, you’re likely to find a number of unique and boutique shops, besides the usual chains. Vancouver maintains a small-town feel with roughly 185,000 residents, making it feel like you can actually start to get to know people around town. Yet when you do want the benefits of big-city life, Portland is less than 10-miles south of the city, making access easy for work and play. In fact, Vancouver, despite being in another state, is essentially a suburb of Portland, but with the benefit of no personal state income tax.

While it may be thought of as a suburb, there’s more than enough to keep you entertained right here in Vancouver. Whether you’re looking for a day’s activity for you and your family or for visiting guests, there’s no shortage of things to do. Among the popular sites to visit are Uptown Village, Esther Short Park, Fort Vancouver, and the new scenic and fun Waterfront.

It’s easy to fall in love with Vancouver, and fortunately, there’s a great community of homes in Vancouver WA that you’re sure to love just as much. The Heights at Green Mountain is a fantastic community that has been carefully planned to include just about everything you could want and need, including a community pool, park, and even walking trails! Add in our top-quality homes that offer the kind of flexibility and adaptability — as well as space — that people are craving these days, and you’ve found the perfect place to call home.
