Where Old Meets New, Where YOU Meet Vancouver
It’s time to re-introduce yourself to Washington’s Vancouver, one of the oldest settled areas in the Pacific Northwest. Once occupied by a paper mill, the Columbia River’s north shore is now accessible for the first time in 100 years. Enjoy fresh seafood on WildFin’s outdoor patio, watch the sunset while taking a stroll along the Columbia River Waterfront Renaissance Trail, and savor an Instagram-worthy milkshake from The Yard — these are just a few options for spending a day at the Vancouver Waterfront.
Opening summer 2022, the AC Hotel by Marriott and Hotel Indigo provide premiere lodging experiences with riverfront views. Pair your stay with a stop at one of the six (soon to be eight) wine tasting rooms within a few blocks of one another from renowned wineries around Washington and Oregon. Sip a Cabernet Franc bellied up to the circa 1885 wood-crafted Brunswick bar at Maryhill Winery or experience the aviation history tied to Airfield Estates while enjoying wines titled after vintage aircrafts.
Less than a half mile away, downtown Vancouver buzzes with festivals at Esther Short Park, original breweries and the historic Kiggins Theatre. Find eateries as casual as a fun pizza place to a fancy farm-to-table dining spot. Discover the city’s roots at Fort Vancouver just a mile east of downtown, and the Pearson Air Museum next door. Explore Officers Row lined with 22 preserved Victorian homes that transport you to another era.
Vancouver is where history meets creativity and where the past meets the future. Come see for yourself.
