A great area to spend a few days on both sides of the river. Small towns, breweries, golf, train rides, lots of hikes, diverse landscapes, fishing and much more! Make sure to check out the historic highway 30 too.

If you are in this area, you must drive through the scenic highway and explore this beautiful area. Makes for excellent photo ops especially if the weather is nice, which we experienced on a recent trip. Easy and quick drive from Portland.
We were disappointed in the run down condition of the hotel. Top floor was closed off because of damage. Staff was friendly and helpful, grounds and view were beautiful. Simons had great food.
If you are in the area drive this scenic route making the indicated stops for waterfalls and views. Weekdays are less crowded. Go at least to the town of Hood River which is a charming place with lots of good restaurants and cure shops.
The Columbia River Gorge is beauty at every turn and every angle. Lots of great hiking, Multnomah Falls was beautiful, Mosier Plateau has an amazing view. Tamanawas Falls is a great hike - moderate, but the waterfall is not to be missed.
