Hood River: gateway to the Columbia River Gorge

Hood River is a family-friendly city that can be enjoyed year round, with great restaurants, and perfect for hiking and biking through the spring, summer, and fall, and skiing through the winter months. A Hood River vacation rental is an ideal base from which to explore the picturesque scenery of the Columbia River Gorge. Overlooked by the snowy cap of Mount Adam and surrounded by dense scented forests, Hood River vacation rentals range from tranquil wooden lodges to luxurious glass-walled modern homes that really make the most of the spectacular views.

With local orchards and farmsteads mingling with the vineyards and virgin forest, a winery tour is both a scenic and tasty way to explore this beautiful region. Anyone into aviation shouldn’t miss a visit to Hood River’s largest museum, the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. It hosts the Hood River Fly-In on the first weekend after Labor Day each year, which features antique aircraft and automobiles from across America.
