It’s All Happening Here

We’re a small town 60 miles east of Portland with more to do than there will ever be time for. With the Columbia River at our doorstep and Mt. Hood in our backyard, we’re a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. Hike or bike the city or explore nearby trails. Ski Mt. Hood in the morning, go wine or beer tasting in the afternoon, and sample farm-to-table cuisine in the evening. Anything is possible in Hood River.
