The city of Vancouver, Washington is located on the Columbia River banks. Vancouver serves as the seat of Clark County. It is part of the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan area, the 23rd-largest metropolitan area within the nation. It is the 4th biggest city within Washington State.

Vancouver is named after Captain George Vancouver, an officer of the British Royal Navy. Vancouver has the same name as the city of Vancouver in Canada, that lies 491 km towards the north within the province of British Columbia. The city of Vancouver, Washington, was incorporated in the year 1857, and the city of Vancouver, British Columbia was incorporated 29 later. The city in America is the former location of the historic Fort Vancouver trading post. Due to frequent confusion between the two cities, Vancouver city officials have suggested changing the name back to Fort Vancouver. Other recommendations consist of calling it Vancouver USA, or Old Vancouver, because of the fact that the U.S. city was incorporated first. Numerous Pacific Northwest residents call their city as "Vancouver USA" or "Vancouver, Washington". Local nicknames include "The Couve" and "Vantucky".

The Vancouver region was first settled by the Chinook people, who had a salmon- and trade-based economy. The Hudson's Bay Company supported trade in timber and fur industry. Inhabitants established agriculture in the region, and eventually a healthy market in apples, strawberries and prunes developed. The town relied on ferry transportation as it was bypassed by the railroad during the latter part of the 1800s. The city developed around Washington Street where ferries arrived. Early developments included a big spruce mill. By the year 1908 a railroad swing bridge was built across the Columbia. This permitted the development of the Standifer Shipyard, which prospered in the first World War. In the 1940s, the construction of the Bonneville Dam and the Interstate Bridge helped spark an industrial boom, including a shipyard and paper mill.

Heavy industry declined in the region when logging had depleted the old growth forests and high tech businesses and service companies started to became important sources of employment in Vancouver. The city of Vancouver is the home of Nautilus, Inc. and The Holland. Numerous folks prefer to reside in Vancouver and commute to the city of Portland for work. Nearness to Portland City makes the city of Vancouver a desirable community for retirees, who also like the fact that there is no state income tax within Washington. Downtown Vancouver has numerous small, independent companies.
