Driving through the Columbia Gorge is an experience not to be missed. So much to see. Beautiful scenery, wind surfers,dams traffic on the river. Many spots to stop and picnic. We have travelled here many times and never get tired off it. Wonderful road.

Incredible drive through along the gorge. Plenty of places to eat and stay along the way. So many winery’s to stop and visit. No brainer!

The drive from Portland though the first 1/3 of the Gordge is so beautiful! Tress, river, rocks, and then you come to the wineries and the land has no trees, just a vast expanse of earth and rock!

In September 2017, a wildfire ravaged this scenic area. Although it is still beautiful, it is heartbreaking to see the damage.

This area is wonderful for a day trip, a weekend getaway, or a long vacation. The warmer months offer dozens of activities and local events. But even in the winter you'll find indoor and outdoor adventures, museums, and fun local haunts.

We enjoyed 2 days of driving and camping along the river/gorge. We drove on both sides of the river in both Washington State and Oregon.
