So Much to Do in Hood River
When you visit for Memorial Day, the season is just warming up and spring is in the air. You’ll want to get outside! Whether you’re a high-powered sports junkie or a leisurely stroll type of person, you’ll find activities in and around Hood River that are just right for you.
If you like to take tours, there are so many to choose from. For a relaxing tour where you sit back and enjoy the scenery, try a full or half day waterfall tour. There are many available that will take you to see Multnomah Falls and the Columbia River Gorge, and some include stops at wineries along the way. The Columbia Gorge is a wonder in itself, as it ranges past waterfalls, mountains, monoliths, resort towns, vineyards, orchards, and the River itself. The National Scenic Area is 85 miles long, and you can easily spend the whole day just exploring it, either on your own, or on a tour with a knowledgeable guide who will show you the best spots.
For a truly unique Hood River tour experience, why not see some of the very best sights from the saddle of an e-bike? E-bikes give you a boost when climbing hills, so you don’t have to be a top athlete to enjoy the ride. The Tasting the Gorge Tour is a fabulous combination of the best things the area has to offer: incredible scenery along the Columbia River, fun in the fresh air with the wind in your face, and samples of some fabulous wine! You’ll stop at Garnier Vineyards, known for their amazing rose (and love of bike tours); enjoy their impressive gorge view while tasting their vintage. Next, you’ll stop in at the quaint little town of Mosier, where you can pick up some snacks and sample a beer at their local watering hole. Finally, take in views of two mountains from an off-the-beaten path at Memaloose State Park. It’s a great way to get the lay of the land and enjoy yourself in lovely Hood River!
Water sports are also incredibly popular in Hood River, and if you’re at all inclined, now’s your chance to sample something new! If you like gentle water, consider trying stand-up paddling, a popular sport that gets you out on calm water, offering a fun vantage point above the water, as well as a killer core workout. If you have more fun catching wind, Hood River is a popular spot for exciting activities like windsurfing and kiteboarding, and you can find plenty of instructors here willing to give you a lesson. And of course, this is also a great area for classic river sports like kayaking, canoeing, and rafting, so choose your level of rapids and get going!
If you’re not a sporty person, don’t worry, there’s still tons of fun to be had in Hood River! Try a unique experience like a hot air balloon ride, or perhaps a scenic ride on the Mount Hood Railroad. Stop in at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum for a fascinating glimpse into the recent past, boasting over two acres of indoor display space for this incredible collection of still-functional vehicles. You can even sign up for a Model T driving course here! Finally, no trip to Hood River would be complete without at least one vineyard visit, as the area is well-known for its wine. Be sure not to miss out!
