Information About Independent Living Facility in Vancouver

Vancouver Independent LivingLocated directly north of Portland, Oregon, along the banks of the Columbia River, the city of Vancouver offers an amazing array of natural scenery. Incorporated in 1957, the Northwest Pacific city holds the notable distinction of being the oldest city in the state of Washington. As one of the oldest settlements on the West Coast, Vancouver offers a unique history unlike any other. Due to a lack of individual income tax in the state of Washington and Oregon's lack of sales tax, many independent seniors in search of affordable living choose to move to Vancouver and take advantage of the numerous shopping and dining amenities found in Portland. Nestled within the mighty Cascades, Vancouver independent living offers healthy, active seniors a great way to enjoy their golden years.

Attractions

Located along the Columbia River's northern banks, the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site offers a rich and exciting experience for history buffs and casual onlookers.

Seniors can enjoy a day well spent at the Kiggins Theatre, have a relaxing lunch at the Grant House, enjoy an exciting game of bowling with friends at Allen's Crosley Lanes or simply take a stroll along the banks of the Columbia River. Thanks to its close proximity and abundant public transportation options, active seniors can immerse themselves in Portland's vibrant culture at their leisure. Vancouver independent living also offers plenty of prime opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities, including a few rounds of golf at the various golf courses located throughout Vancouver. Senior Activities Residents of Vancouver's many vibrant independent living communities can take advantage of these senior centers to meet fellow seniors, engage in outdoor recreation and fitness or take arts and crafts courses. Seniors can gain free internet service, access to on-site fitness facilities and register for various events and classes by obtaining a membership for a small annual fee.
