About Us

Who we are:

We're a lot like you. We live, work and play along the north bank of the mighty Columbia River. We love the outdoors, working in our gardens, shopping local and discovering new brew pubs, restaurants, wineries and coffee houses. We're all about the emerging urban lifestyle that defines the North Bank. From Camas to Cathlamet and Ilwaco to Yacolt. From the Columbia Gorge to Vancouver Lake, we are all about the North Bank.

North Bank Now

We answer this question:

What is there to do in Southwest Washington?

North Bank Now is your source for places to play, hike, dine, drink, discover, shop, see, relax, learn and occasionally volunteer (because nothing feels as good as giving back). Every day, we'll post new events, happenings, and classes, as well as lively restaurant and retail reviews. We're North Bank Magazine's digital sister, preserving the publication's spirit while providing an up-to-the-minute guide to what's happening on the North Bank.

Check in with us often—we'll make it worth your while. You'll find things on our site you won’t find anywhere else: hip eateries, hotspots, and savvy retailers who get the mix right. We love green, we love sustainable, we love farm-to-table. We love the outdoors, we think keeping fit is fun, and we love to relax in style (day spa, anyone?). We also understand that hanging out with your kids doesn't mean you can't have fun, too—so we'll give you tips on the most kid-AND-adult-friendly activities in the Clark County area.
