Vancouver is a city on the north bank of the Columbia River in the U.S. state of Washington
and the county seat of Clark County.
In 2007, the United States Census Bureau estimated that the city's population was 160,800.
It is part of the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan area.
The larger city of Vancouver, British Columbia is located 305 miles (491 km) north of Vancouver, Washington.
Both cities were named for sea captain George Vancouver, but the Canadian city was not incorporated until 1886,
nearly thirty years after Vancouver, Washington, and more than sixty years after the name
Fort Vancouver was first used.
City officials have periodically suggested changing the city's name to Fort Vancouver, Vancouver USA,
or even Old Vancouver to reduce confusion with Vancouver, British Columbia.
Washington residents distinguish between the two cities by referring to the Canadian Vancouver
as "Vancouver, B.C."
