Things to do in Vancouver
There are many things to do in Vancouver, including visiting parks like Esther Short Park and Fort Vancouver National Historic Site. One of our favorite parks for an easy nature hike and "forest bath" is Whipple Creek. Downtown Vancouver is growing fast and there are many popular restaurants and shops, and the Riverfront is getting national attention. Other popular activities include visiting the Clark County Historical Museum and the Pearson Air Museum, and taking a scenic drive or bike ride along the Columbia River. Additionally, Vancouver offers a vibrant arts and culture scene, with many local theater and music venues, as well as annual festivals and events.
No State Income Tax
Aside from the housing and outdoor recreation spots, Vancouver residents pay no personal state income tax. There are just seven states in the country that do not impose income tax on residents, and Washington is one of them. Unlike Oregon though Washington does have a sales tax. So while sales tax can mean higher prices, the amount of money you can save from not paying income tax often means better economic prospects for residents. Keep in mind that if you work in Oregon and generate your income there you will have to pay Oregon income tax even if you live in Vancouver.

Vancouver, Washington is one of the best places to conduct business, and the area enjoys a relatively low unemployment rate.

Further, a highly-ranked public school system means that children are well prepared to find well-paying jobs after they graduate.
