    Want to get some skiing in during the summer? No problem, grab your skis and head to Timberline Lodge where the season never ends. If you are looking for something other than skiing, then the mountain offers excellent hiking and mountain biking as well.

    We have been traveling to Portland for 7 years, and just stumbled across this gem!! A beautiful 35-mile drive through the Hood River valley's forests, orchards, and farmlands. Over 30 different shops and stops including fruits stands, wineries, baked goods, even a lavender and alpaca farm. Get everything you need to know here.
  • Sauvie Island

    If the Hood River Fruit Loop trail is too big a commitment, Sauvie Island is a great alternative. Fruit stands, organic farms, and Oregon's smallest lighthouse only 10 miles Northwest of Portland. More information on the island can be found here.
  • Wine Country

    Oregon has over 300 wineries, so planning a trip can be overwhelming. A great place to start is at Sip D'Vine in Multnomah Village. The staff here is very knowledgable about Oregon wines and can give you some great ideas. Once you have some ideas, oregonwine.org is a great resource to plan a day trip. If you have decided the Willamette Valley is for you these wine tasting routes offer some excellent ideas.
