“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.”

“It's a perfectly fine, even exquisite, breakfast. But I like to line up at the roll-up window next door, peer longingly at the bakery shelves and order at least two of their superb pastries.”

“With more than 250 vendors and all kinds of veggies, fruit, baked goods, flowers, handcrafts and even clothes, you don’t want to miss out on a stop to the Vancouver Farmers Market. It’s open to both people and pets every Saturday and Sunday, March-October, and is the second-largest farmers market in Washington State. In addition to the shopping, there are many vendors who sell ready-to-eat items so you can chow down on the spot, and local musicians are frequently performing.”
