20 Best Value Towns in the West

"If you’re relocating to Portland and want the best value for your money, there’s a good chance you won’t be house-shopping in Portland. Or even in Oregon. You’ll be looking in Vancouver. Not the Vancouver in Canada but the one across the Columbia River from PDX, in income-tax-free Washington State."

"In the past few years, West Vancouver’s dormant downtown and Uptown Village retail strip have reawakened. Today, you’ll find brewpubs, wine bars, restaurants, and coffee bars— all of them bringing a little piece of Portland to the suburbs."

. . . 

And, we're a fan of the space we created with Boomerang, the innovative, philanthropic, downtown Vancouver generosity and coffee shop:

"Boomerang, a shop and coffee house in downtown Vancouver, donates its profits to local causes— and has a treehouse inside."
