My husband and I will fly into Portland and drive to Kennewick, WA to visit my grandparents over the last weekend in December. I am looking for suggestions on where to stop along the way!! Here are some of my favorites from the past, wondering if I'm missing anything. Also, are there any good wintery-snow activities to do (sleigh rides etc. probably not enough time to ski)?
Troutdale Historic District: I picked up some of my most treasured home decorations in one of the shops there that has since closed. Is this place still good?
Hood River: I went to a great cafe restaurant there and shops. I like this area a lot, but have never had enough time to spend
Columbia Gorge Hotel: I have only visited the grounds. I hear the restaurant is outstanding. We may go here for lunch on our way up.
