“The Best of Vancouver”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

If you are in Vancouver and you miss this location, you have missed Vancouver. You must be in B.C. - the other vancouver.

Do yourself a favor and don't just drive through, but get out and walk. The army quarters that is now part of the National Park Service is south of Officers Row. The Grant House - one of the best restaurants in Vancouver is located here. The Marshall House is a wedding venue. The history of this place and the nearby Fort Vancouver are worth a trip if you are visiting.

Missing this place is like going to St. Louis and missing the Arch.

“a nice drive by”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

Just as named: old , now decommissioned Fort Vancouver Army Post, now decommissioned and the city has acquired a lot of it including the old officers row, most of it dating back to the early 1800's. It was all restored in the 70's and is beautiful to look at. Three buildings are open to the public; a restaurant, a museum and a host house. The rest are office rentals. It is s lovely tree lined walk/drive and a good place to watch parades and other activities. The rebuilt old Fort Vancouver is a national monument site and just a medium walk across a grassed field.
