Vancouver, Wash., has launched a new slogan to help avoid confusion with Vancouver, B.C.

The slogan, “Visit Vancouver, U.S.A. — Discover the Original,” not only differentiates by geography, but also makes the statement that the Washington State city has been around longer — 30 years, according to the tourism office there.

Apparently, the problem is real, is reporting. In the lead up to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, hotels in the southern city fielded numerous calls from confused travellers.
