Vancouver National Historic Reserve
No trip to Vancouver would be complete without an excursion to the Vancouver National Historic Reserve (from I-5 take E. Mill Plain Blvd. and turn left at Fort Vancouver Way), a trove of history and scenery that unfolds over hundreds of acres.
Curious travelers will stumble upon a reconstructed Hudson’s Bay trading post, the only complete row of restored 19th-century officers’ homes in the nation, the barracks, and one of the oldest operating airfields in the country.
