​Quick Roadtrips from Camas, WA
    Located along the Columbia River lies the gorgeous city of Camas, Washington. Known as a city for its natural landscape, the city has experienced a recent surge in population. According to the most recent census, the city boasts a population of nearly 23 thousand inhabitants. Because of its location along a river, it is quite easy to hop in your car to explore other cities along the Western United States.
    In this article, I have highlighted the top three cities to visit that are near Camas, Washington.

Vancouver, WA
    Just 20 minutes west of Camas lies the city of Vancouver, Washington. Besides being a suburb of nearby Portland Oregon, the city is also known as the home of Fort Vancouver. An interesting fact about the fort was that it was the headquarters of Hudson’s Bay Company, which was a huge influence for fur trading in the Pacific Northwest. The historic landmark is open to the public and has activities for visitors of all ages. Although the fort is not free, it is relatively cheap to visit at $7 per person.
    Another site that you do not want to miss while road tripping through Vancouver is the Pearson Field and Pearson Air Museum. Although the military base has not been used since World War II, it demonstrates that Vancouver also had a large military presence in the area during the turn of the century. If you are a veteran, love history, or are a pilot, you will be amazed at the planes that the museum houses. One plane that is housed at the museum is the 1918 DeHavilland DH-4B, which was used during World War I. Additionally, the museum is free for all.

Portland, OR
    Our next stop takes you 30 minutes southwest of Camas. It is the city of Portland, Oregon. Known by its various nicknames, such as “Rose City” and “Keep Portland Weird”, the city is also home to a plentiful amount of things to do in the area. However, one place you for sure do not want to miss is the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. The museum highlights the importance that the city places on science and technology research. A few of the exhibits on display at the museum are the Lenses on the Sky and Renewable Energy. Each of these exhibits encourages active participation through their various activities. In addition, the museum also is home to many kinds of labs that emphasize different topics in the field of science and technology. Be sure to check out the museum’s calendar to see if there is a lab you might be interested in trying.
    If you are an animal lover, then come and explore the Oregon Zoo. Some of the animals that live here are the cheetah and the cougar. Aside from housing diverse species of animals, the area is also home to several summer concerts. Find out in their calendar to see if your favorite artist is playing in Portland this summer!

Salem, OR
    After visiting the cities of Vancouver and Portland, you may be interested in exploring the western United States on a deeper level. Our last stop is directly located 1 hour south of Portland. It is the capital city of Salem, Oregon. An interesting fact about Salem is that it is located in the Willamette Valley, which is known for some of the best tasting local wine.
    Apart from vineyards, Salem is also known as the home of Oregon Garden. The area showcases various plants, such as orchids and nearly 40 species of roses. Talk about a plant lovers’s paradise!
    The city of Salem is also home to a sizable art influence. The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is the third largest museum in the state. The museum displays art work from local and other historical artists. A few upcoming exhibits are Water is Sacred: Water is Life by Willamette University professor James B. Thompson and Undignified by Portland, Oregon artist Jim Riswold.
    Given the close proximity of other major west coast cities, driving from Camas is the perfect road trip to visit all of these amazing cities. Well, what are you waiting for?! Book with us today!
