Had a nice day so we took a stroll in the area. Lots of nice historical houses to see. Some were open for tours with gift shops inside. Reminded me of some plantation houses in the south. Huge yards and grounds in the area. Nice drive through the area.

If you are in Vancouver, driving along or parking and walking along Officer's Row is a relaxing and easy way to admire beautiful mid-nineteenth century architecture and enjoy a lovely view of the Willamette River. I took my mother here and she admired the homes and river view from the car. We got out of the car to walk around... More

Thoroughly enjoyed strolling beneath the giant trees along the Officer's row and visiting the historic homes. Lunch at the Grant House was delicious and special. It is good to walk where some very famous American military figures have been and to imagine life there in their time. A beautiful setting along the Columbia and a stone's throw from the very...

I agree with some of the other reviewers this is a very interesting area of Vancouver and is very elegant and pretty to view, but it is not necessary to get out of your car unless you are looking for some exercise. There are signs that can be viewed from the street identify some of the houses as some are... More

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... More
