Located on the north bank of the Columbia River in the state of Washington, Vancouver is the largest suburb of Portland, Oregon. It is the fourth largest city in Washington with a population of 161,791 as of 2010. With the motto: “A colorful past, a bright future,” Vancouver was originally a fur-trading outpost. In 2005, Money magazine named Vancouver No. 91 on its list of best places in America to live, and in 2016, WalletHub ranked Vancouver the 39th best place in the US for families to live.
Many people go to Vancouver to see Esther Short Park, the oldest public square in Washington. People also flock to Fort Vancouver, which has great views of the mountain ranges and the city. There are also a number of mountains to hike, including Silver Star Mountain, a now-extinct volcano that’s part of the Cascade Mountains.
There’s no shortage of things to do in Vancouver, but unfortunately accidents do happen to regular people like you. Whether you’re injured as a pedestrian by the Waterfront Renaissance or involved in an auto accident on Interstate 5, life is truly unpredictable.
