“And quality organic produce, too!”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

There is a lot to see and do on Sauvie Island. Take your bike and ride the roads. It's even better when you take unexpected detours.

“I want to return ...”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

to this wonderfully serene, picturesque area just minutes from the urban bustle of Portland, Oregon. We enjoyed a nice afternoon of photography, exploring the river's end beach area for a return visit, and looking at fields of lovely farms and distant mountains.

“Preserved beauty”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

Close to downtown Portland but so very different. Land use restrictions have kept it agricultural. Nice, remote beaches. Good for biking. Worth visiting.
