What better place than Hood River and the Columbia Gorge to live or play? Breathtaking natural beauty, abundant recreation, small town ambiance and a kid-friendly atmosphere - in addition to our location within the National Scenic Area (NSA) - combine to make our Hood River/Columbia River Gorge Area truly the Northwest's Last Best Place. Increasingly, our unique area is sought by retirees.

Enjoy easy access to "best-place" locations throughout the Columbia River Gorge for almost every outdoor pursuit: windsurfing, kiteboarding, cycling, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, river rafting, photography, fishing, biking and more. In addition, hidden behind the small town façade, there is a sophisticated arts and cultural interests community offering a wealth of possibilities. Downtown Hood River is an exciting spot for good food, art and an eclectic shopping experience.
