I LOVE driving out here on weekends! During the summer the farmers always have fresh produce. It is a peaceful area even though it can be busy with folks coming out to the famers markets. You can always spot wildlife! The beach is a good place to cool off!

Mostly farms and nature preserves on the island... it is really beautiful. I really dislike the crowds down near the beaches, and people drive in really annoying ways. The berry farms are awesome and fun to explore.

This is one of those places that I have been going to several time a year since I was a kid! Whether it's for the orchards and the u-picks, the pumpkin patch, or river lounging-- it's a special place for Portland and for me!

Beautiful island! Be prepared to buy a parking permit which you can get at the local island store or at the 7-11 you'll pass in Linton (a town on HWY 30).
