Hood River

Last weekend we headed east to spend a couple of days in Hood River.  Only a little over an hour from Portland, it truly felt like a getaway.

We stayed in the haunted Hood River Hotel


Stopped at Multnomah Falls on the way up…

Drank lots of good beer…

Double Mountain

Everybody’s Brewing


Stopped in a couple great boutiques – honestly better than I’ve found in Portland…


Parts + Labour

And most importantly, spent a lot of quality time with good friends…

If you’re looking for a quick getaway that will feel like your 100s of miles away, Hood River is the spot.



PS, a few more recos:


Egg River Cafe

Full Sail Brewing

Sixth Street Bistro

Bette’s Place

A lot of these are from the NY Times article, “36 Hours in Hood River,” that was published last year.  I didn’t find out about the article until about halfway through our trip but according to this list it looks like we chose well!
