If you are looking for a fun, family-friendly day out, take a walk along the Vancouver National Historic Reserve, visit the Officer's Row, the Fort Vancouver and more... Or just have a nice picnic in the park. Centrally located near downtown Vancouver with east access via car, bike, walk or bus....

This is a great place to take a walk through history. At the time of my visit they were restoring some of the buildings, which I am sure were needed. It is interesting to learn who spent time here.

If you like history of the USA, then the Vancouver National Historic landmark on Officers Row and adjacent Barracks and the rest of the place is where you want to be.

You can see all the history revolving around Presidents, great military leaders and the original Ft Vancouver (Hudsons Bay) trading outpost. This is a very easy walk down sidewalks and in a park to make viewing and seeing history easy. There are placards up along the walk that point out the history of the past. This is an awesome adventure... More

The day we spent there with friends was a fun, fact filled tour of this historic site. How can you lose with a folksy presentation of the factual background for the entire Northwest. Just a good way to spend a few hours.

The Vancouver National Historic Reserve has a lot to see. The old Fort Vancouver is a very nice reproduction of the old trading post for the Hudson Bay Company in the early 1800's.Take your time...

We have been to many events in this area. The history is great, make sure you have time to visit all of the houses and read about them. It is a fun thing to do when the weather is nice. Take the family and make the walk.
