Visit Vancouver USA


A Destination Ready for Discovery

Located on the shores of the Columbia River just minutes from Portland International Airport, Vancouver USA is the metropolitan hub of Southwest Washington. Our revitalized city boasts an eclectic blend of urban offerings and historic roots, which makes it an accessible and welcoming destination for diverse groups of all sizes. Most recently, a $1.5 billion development at the Waterfront Vancouver has brought a wealth of cultural and recreational experiences for visitors to explore. The iconic Grant Street Pier juts out 90 feet over the Columbia, and the new Vancouver Waterfront Park spans 7 acres of shoreline and retail promenade. The fresh identity of the city continues to evolve with plans in the works for two new riverfront hotels. The Vancouver Convention Center is conveniently located downtown near artisan eateries, art galleries, craft breweries, and a wide variety of retail shopping. Our walkable city center is connected by urban trails and an award-winning land bridge to a historic National Park Site and a scenic riverwalk. Year-round attractions and events keep visitors entertained no matter the season. Vancouver USA offers more than 2,700 guest rooms and incredible venue options to host board meetings, regional conventions, and expansive trade shows. Unique venues include Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, the Victorian homes of Officers Row, and a restored ballroom overlooking Main Street.
