Camas – What’s not to love?

We appreciate the welcoming small-town atmosphere in Camas, Washington. Tree-lined streets and friendly merchants make the downtown one of our favorite spots to shop. A sense of community underscores the lifestyle, and plenty of events, hosted by the Downtown Merchants Association and the Parks and Recreation Department, are designed to get people together. One of our favorites is the annual Boo Bash. While this event is designed for children, but we often see everybody getting involved – even the family pets!

Eco-therapy is just what the doctor ordered. We have plenty of that too. Pristine waterways, lush green forests, and snow-capped mountains provide a backdrop for our many Camas neighborhoods. Recreation is literally minutes away with our many parks, trails, lakes, and the mighty Columbia River. Twenty minutes east puts you in the scenic Columbia River Gorge with world class recreation. Enjoy hiking and biking trails, windsurfing, rafting, kayaking, skiing, and fishing to name a few. Our seasons bring us varied landscapes too with colorful wildflowers in the Spring, and the golden tones of the Deciduous trees in the Fall.

The Pacific Northwest, in general, is pretty laid back. We tend to dress casually and put a lot of import on comfort and appropriate weather attire. However, we do enjoy dressing up too, and going to fabulous restaurants, cultural events, or one of the many attractions in neighboring Portland, Oregon. Those of you familiar with the television hit, Portlandia, will be pleased to know there is a grain or two of truth in those funny storylines. Admittedly, we enjoy our close proximity to the Rose city, but always breath easier returning to the slower pace on this side of the Columbia River. We think it’s a wonderful place to call home.
