“The Waterfront Wonder.”

“Living in Vancouver, Washington means having one foot in the country and the other in suburbia. Vancouver is the fourth largest city in Washington State and part of the Portland Oregon Metro Area. Yet rivers, foothills, and mountains of the Cascade Range dominate the visual landscape You’ll feel like part of civilization, but live only a short drive from the back-country wilderness.”
