Vancouver, Washington, is a city unto its own in an entirely different state, but it is also very much a suburb of Portland—just 10 miles away from downtown Portland. Vancouver residents work and play in Portland, constantly crossing over the wide Columbia River on one of two elevated interstate bridges, the I-5 Bridge and the Glenn Jackson Bridge (I-205). This ride begins in the quirky, historic Woodlawn neighborhood, where diagonal streets, originally oriented to a long- defunct streetcar line, create intriguing blocks and the “Dekum Triangle” commercial district. Food and drink options abound in this tightly knit, burgeoning neighborhood. There are few amenities along this ride. The I-5 Bridge spans the mighty Columbia River, connecting Oregon to Washington.
