Do not ditch the solutions files. There are helpful where you have multiple projects. And there is an extension in vscode in which you will provide a visual studio-like explorer window:
marketplace.visualstudio.com/items...

The Rider also is a very good non-free solution.
Finally, you do not need to follow the visual studio template regarding angular or similar javascript frameworks. Instead, you can set it up yourself and use visual studio for development.
