This is a must see destination for everyone to appreciate! It's right along the historic highway, you don't need a whole lot of time to be there to take it all in, but depending on when you go the parking might be a little congested. If you go, DON'T FORGET YOUR CAMERA!!! You get a fantastic view of the Columbia River and the gorge walls. The Vista House is used quite often in movies and is fairly easy to identify. The movie "Short Circuit" had a scene with the characters looking out from the Vista House. If you're flying over it, you can usually see it from the plane because it's surrounded by a circle of lights. No matter how many times you go there, every time is still as stunning as the last. ENJOY!
