“In the 1900s, the Vancouver Barracks were a top spot for aviation enthusiasts. So, when World War I began, this spot became the Spruce Production Division’s Spruce Cut-Up Mill, and the lumber produced was used to create aircraft for both pilot training and overseas combat. However, after the war, the mill was demolished, and an air field constructed. One notable flight that stopped by over the area’s history? The Douglas World Cruisers landed here on their way to achieving the first aerial circumnavigation of the globe, in 1924. In addition, the Soviet Union flyers attempting a trans-polar flight from Moscow landed at Pearson Field due to an oil leak.”

Park
“The Waterfront Renaissance Trail is five miles of riverfront that’s great for a long stroll, or even a bike ride. It connects Esther Short Park and Winter Park, and there are tons of fun things to do following its path, including places to dine, shop and just enjoy the great outdoors. In addition, this is a good spot for snapping a few photos, as you’ll enjoy unparalleled views of the I-5 and I-205 bridges, as well as Mount Hood. It just doesn’t get any better than that, and you’ll find yourself thoroughly envying those who get to live along its route.”

“Within the city are 22 restored homes from the 1800s. Originally, the structures were the homes of U.S. Army officers, but now they hold their own places on the National Historic Register. While some are offices and private residences, others are open for you to explore. The Ulysses S. Grant House is the oldest of the 22, built in 1850, and you can enjoy a guided tour or exhibits on the home’s residents over the years. One house even has a restaurant, so stick around of dinner!”

Park
“The green space located in downtown Vancouver is the oldest public square in the entire state. Created in 1853, it’s overseen by the 69-foot Salmon Run Bell Tower, which is home to 35 cast bronze bells chiming every 15 minutes, from the morning hours to later in the evening. This great little park is very near several hotels, so you can easily walk there, and you may even catch the farmers market if you’re lucky to be there on the right days.”
