Vancouver is an ideal place to live if you enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, and biking. The city offers access to numerous trails, rivers, mountains, and parks. The area’s parks are particularly popular with residents, who regularly flock to these outdoor places on the weekend to enjoy a picnic or hiking. During the summer, residents travel to sunny beaches, including English Bay, Spanish Banks, and Stanley Park. In addition, Vancouver is home to many of the country’s top golf courses for people who enjoy staying inland. If you prefer water sports, there are some great lakes for kayaking and water skiing.
No State Income Tax
Aside from the housing and outdoor recreation spots, Vancouver residents pay no personal state income tax. There are just seven states in the country that do not impose income tax on residents, and Washington is one of them. Unlike Oregon though Washington does have a sales tax. So while sales tax can mean higher prices, the amount of money you can save from not paying income tax often means better economic prospects for residents. Keep in mind that if you work in Oregon and generate your income there you will have to pay Oregon income tax even if you live in Vancouver.
