This is the oldest living apple tree in Washington and is considered to be the grandfather of the apple industry in the state.
The Fort Vancouver National Historic Site is a great place to visit for the whole family, where visitors can discover the region's history and interesting facts about Vancouver and Washington state.

The Esther Short Park is a great area to enjoy the city and have a coffee while sitting outside.

One of the most wonderful and historical landmarks is the Waterfront Renaissance Trail, right next to the Vancouver Lake Park. For more historic buildings, the Officers’ Row is like taking a step back in time and is ideal for the history buffs of your group.
