Take a fairly short and incredibly scenic drive east of Portland and you'll come across the stunning Dalles and Hood River region.
The Dalles offers you grand vistas, great outdoor recreation, and a glimpse into another time at the Columbia River Gorge Discovery Center. Free guided tours of The Dalles historic area take you past the stunning 1897 St. Peter Landmark, the Baldwin Saloon, old Ft. Dalles and Pulpit Rock.
The Hood River area is also particularly well known for its great wineries and cherry orchards and the ideal conditions for windsurfers, white water rafting and kayaking experiences.
Drive the Columbia River Historic and Scenic Highway with some spectacular scenery, the highest waterfalls and the best views of the Gorge. 620 foot Multnomah Falls is only one of dozens of waterfalls that dot the roadway.
