Vancouver, WA Visitor Info

Welcome to Vancouver USA! Vancouver is your Southwest Washington destination for scenic beauty, splendid recreational opportunities, and a wealth of historic and cultural offerings.

VisitorsVancouver, Washington's fourth largest city, is situated just across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon. The revitalized city, with its eclectic blend of new construction and historic architecture, offers all the amenities of a large metropolitan city but with the charm and hospitality of a small urban town. The downtown area is bustling with quaint eateries, shops, art galleries, and a wide variety of retail shopping from charming boutiques to antiques. The area also offers numerous year-round attractions and events to keep visitors well-entertained and continually busy.

With Mount St. Helens to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Cascade Mountains to the east, the area also offers an abundance of natural beauty and recreational opportunities. Explorers-at-heart will want to trace Lewis and Clark's footsteps through this area which Captain Meriwether Lewis himself thought was "the most desirable location for a settlement west of the Rocky Mountains."  Whether you enjoy hiking, fishing, mountain biking, windsurfing or just walking, it's time to Visit Vancouver USA, and Discover the Original!TM
