Neighborhood Guide to Living in Vancouver, Washington1.19.17
A relocation to Vancouver, Washington is a great move for anyone looking for the best of all worlds. Situated next to the Portland metro area for convenience to big-city amenities, Vancouver is perched on the north banks of the scenic Columbia River. Vancouver manages to strike the perfect balance between friendly neighborhoods, downtown services, and outdoor escapes.
No State Income Tax
Washington is one of the few states that has no state income tax. What’s more, in neighboring Oregon there’s no sales tax. Many residents find that working in Vancouver and buying goods in Portland is a great way to save money.
Relocating to Vancouver means exploring some great areas for the perfect home. There are various excellent neighborhoods to choose from, with many close to walking trails or offering beautiful river and mountain views. Make sure to check in with Real Estate Agent Terrie Cox who knows the region well for information on specific neighborhoods.
Nature, Seasons, & Trees
While having all the conveniences expected in a city this size (the population is just over 160,000), Vancouver offers beautiful parks and miles of trails. Nature hikes are easily done without having to travel far. What’s more, the region enjoys four seasons with plenty of trees that burst into color every spring and fall.
The citizens of Vancouver love to have a good time. From the enormous Vancouver Farmers Market which boasts more than 250 vendors, to outdoor summer concerts under the stars, there’s something here for everyone. The city’s annual 4th of July celebration hosts what’s been named the biggest fireworks display west of the Mississippi.
Trendy Shops & Restaurants
The people here also love their food and quirky shops. Uptown Village is among the hippest places to shop, offering plenty of galleries, boutiques, and specialty eateries. After your job relocation, you’ll become accustomed to a handcrafted ice cream, local brew, and world-class lattes.
