What locals are saying

Residents of Vancouver, Washington often refer to their hometown simply as “the ‘Couv.” Snarky critics in nearby Portland have dubbed it “Vantucky.” Other monikers include “Vancooter,” “Baby Portland,” and our personal creative favorite, “Vancouver – but not the one in Canada.” We may not agree on what to call it, but we can all agree on one thing: For apartment hunters looking for a killer pad in the Nirvana of the Northwest (yes, we have more nicknames), Vancouver, Washington may be the perfect place to call home. So read on, future Vancouverite, and you’ll be kicking back in your dream dwellings in two shakes of a lamb’s tail (okay, maybe closer to three or four shakes).

Situated just north of the Oregon border in southwestern Washington, Vancouver suburbanites enjoy easy access to the rest of metropolitan Portland without having to endure the chaos and hassles of the big city
