Incredibly beautiful, with breath-taking views one after the other. The scenic River Highway is the way to go, but the road is narrow in places and in some places there is a pretty steep drop-off. If you are in the area, this is rated Do Not Miss!

Don't come to Portland without taking the short drive to Hood River and back down 84! Check out the numerous waterfalls along the way.

I can go on and on about the Columbia Gorge area, from it's international/national windsurfing, kite boarding, long boarding, kyaking, road and mountain bike cycling to it's great wine, breweries, fresh fruit and produce, wonderful eateries. And I haven't even begun to talk about its history, museums and of course it magnificant beauty.

Beautiful from cliffs on the Hood River side. Head a mile up the river to the bridge, and you can drive along the Washington shore. The drive from Portland is also amazingly beautiful.

The Columbia River Gorge has to be one of America's most scenic drive and destination! I mean there is so much natural beauty to see and behold. From the water falls to the mountains and river below. You will be wondering why you didn't visit sooner. A definite bucket list item.

We took the 'Landmarks of the Gorge' Cruise on the Columbia Gorge Sternwheeler. A fabulous way to see the gorge. The captain was knowledgeable and gave great commentary throughout. We saw went under the Bridge of the Gods, went through the locks in the Bonneville Dam, by Horsetail and other falls, Beacon rock and more. You were welcome to visit... More

So many things to see and do. There is windsurfing, kiteboarding, Bonneville Dam, Fish Ladder, and Waterfalls. Many hikes are also nearby. The view is stunning.
