Not sure about the Skamania suggestion. Vancouver has a large mall on 205 just outside of Portland but I can't really think of anything. Fred Meyers or Walgreens would have some inexpensive Washington T shirts but really nothing special unless you went to someplace like Mt St Helens but that is 45 miles up the road.
Yeah I looked st the Skamania website and only saw a golf course pro shop, so I doubt they would have something she would want. Looks like a beautiful area though!
The Pearson Air Museum might have souvenirs for sale: nps.gov/fova/learn/historyculture/pearson.htm
Washington State University Vancouver has a bookstore with WSU Cougar gear (T-shirts, mugs, college stuff) …wsu.edu/campus-map-directions-and-parking-i… WSU about 10 miles from the Oregon border at the junction of I-5 & I-205. Great views of Mt. St. Helens and Mt Hood from the center of campus on a clear day.
Clark College is the local community college near downtown Vancouver…”Penguin” gear is available at the bookstore: www.clark.edu/
Immediately across the I-5 bridge from Oregon is a large Fred Meyer off of Highway 14 (2500 Columbia House Blvd, Vancouver, WA 98661). Fred Meyer stores usually have a souvenir area with shot glasses, stickers, postcards, etc. Just ask an employee.
Great information thank you
Hope you don't mind me jumping on this thread. My dad and I will be in Portland and he'd like to also step foot in Washington since he's never been. We'll be staying in downtown Portland and I was thinking about having dinner at The Grant House in Vancouver. What would be the best way to get there? We won't have a car... Cab? Uber? Bus?? Train???
I’m not great with public transportation but if I studied this correctly…
You could ride the Max train Yellow Line from downtown to Delta Park/Vanport station (check schedule at https://trimet.org/max/).
Walk south on Broadway about 2.5 blocks to Evergreen Blvd. Turn left (east) on Evergreen and about half way up the block (on the right side of road) should be a bus stop for bus #32 (c-tran.com/32-hazel-dell-evegreen-andresen) . I think the next stop is right in front of the Grant House.
You could also walk from downtown to the Grant House via Evergreen Blvd. It just over ½ mile one way.
Our new(er) Vancouver Public Library is on the corner of Evergreen and C St. It’s a good place for a bathroom break.
The #60 bus will get you back to the Delta Park/Vanport train station.
Or you could Cab or Uber. My Sis-in-Law's mom is a retiree and drives for Uber in Vancouver! go figure. :)
Great details! Thank you!!!
