Longview, home to the Cowlitz Tribe, and, for some time, the largest lumber mill in the world, is located at the Washington-Oregon border, where the Columbia and Cowlitz rivers meet.
Longview is home to two famous bridges. The Lewis & Clark Bridge, a cantilever bridge listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designed by Joseph Strauss of the famed Golden Gate Bridge, connects travelers from Longview to Rainier, Oregon.
The Nutty Narrows bridge, on the other hand, was designed with another audience in mind: squirrels. This foot traffic bridge for squirrels holds the title as the “World’s Narrowest Bridge” and is celebrated each year with the town’s ever-popular and delightful Squirrel Fest.
The celebrations continue throughout the year at the 60-acre Lake Sacajawea Park. In the summertime buy some popcorn and lay down a blanket for family movie nights. Kayak, canoe or take a run around the 3.5 mile trail among the park’s famous Japanese Gardens. Let your kiddos climb on the playgrounds or take in the park’s residents such as the Canadian Geese, beavers, otters and deer.
Wildlife extends beyond the borders of Longview as people relocate to the Northwest not only for the outstanding lifestyle and career opportunities, but for the area’s breathtaking natural beauty, found in both Washington and Oregon alike.
The country’s best and most beautiful great outdoors lie here and are inescapable. From the oceans to the islands, lakes to the mountains and forests to the rivers, all is within reach. And with countless natural water sources, it’s no surprise that fishing is a favored hobby. The Columbia River, specifically, is widely known for its salmon as well as steelhead, sturgeon and walleye.
If you’d rather leave the fishing to someone else, yet still want to indulge in some seafood fare, then you’ve come to the right place. The northwest as a whole is celebrated for its extensive and acclaimed cuisine and is prized for its source-conscious practices, farm-to table restaurants and extensive farmers markets. Portland is home to James Beard, a celebrity chef and icon, whose immense influence led to the creation of the well-known James Beard Awards, the food industry’s highest honor.
If you’re unsure which side of the state line to call home, just know that either way you can’t go wrong. Celebrated first and foremost for its economy, as well as its infrastructure, healthcare and educational opportunities, it’s no wonder that Washington was ranked the Nation’s Best State this year by U.S. News & World Report. And Oregon is right up there, as Portland was ranked #8 on the list of the best places to live in the U.S.
With your beautiful new practice situated right on the border of these two economically sound, culturally rich and naturally gorgeous states, you can have both.
The Pacific Northwest is calling. This is your chance to answer.
