Want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Downtown? Take your bike and go to Sauvie Island. You will think you drove 100 miles. It is actually only 12 miles from town.

Nice views, water close by to float your paddle board and fishing pole. What more do you need? A Bluetooth speaker you ask? Bring that too, because odds are that someone is playing their music just a bit loudly.

I enjoyed an August Saturday afternoon on Sauvie Island beach area. It was a nice drive and decent beach area. One advice is don't forget that you need to purchase a parking pass. Look online for locations.
