Fall in Hood River is a treasure trove of festivals, bounty, cultural events and bright colors. There’s never a shortage of activities for you in Hood River during this time of year; you just have to know where to look to find them. We saved you the trouble of doing that and write out a few things to try during these festive months. The activities below should keep you happy and occupied throughout your stay in Hood River.

  • Coffee is Good for the Soul

We’re not talking some random type of coffee in a little-known coffee shop wedged in the corner of an unknown street, no. Head over to the historic downtown shopping area and treat yourself to exceptionally wonderful tea and coffee. The area has all manner of great shops-as you would expect, coffee shops and cafes are choice favorites of many a visitor. And there’s a lot to shop for, not just coffee.

Jewelry shops riddle the place too, as do clothing and book shops. If your family is tagging along, there are great toy shops to keep the young ones happy too. You can get shoes, wine and even artworks. It’s an area that really has everything you might want as a souvenir or gift.

  • Fruits All Over the Place

No Hood River list is complete without including the Hood River County Fruit Loop. It runs through the months of September and October, which is also the ripe time to pick pears, pumpkins, apples and more fruits at this festive and colorful event. The fruit stands alone can keep you occupied for hours on end. You’ll get to taste fresh cider and numerous other fall produce.

The cideries and wineries also entail seasonal tastings, so that’s something else to look forward to. We have to mention the apple tastings and Halloween celebrations too. There’s an events calendar that can give you the full listing of the events. Go to Hoodriverfruitloop.com to have a look at it.

  • Festivals Everywhere

We’ll start off with the Hood River Hops Fest. Kudos to the Hood River County Chamber of Commerce for making this one-day event possible. Over 50 breweries bringing more than 60 varieties of beer will attend the festival. It’s the motherlode of fresh-hop beers.

Granted, it would have been more convenient had the event run for a few more days, but the amount of fun to be had and the sheer number activities awaiting you easily make up for it. You have limited time to spare, so make the most of it!

Try not to get too drunk though, because there’s still one more place you need to see. It’s a spa and health center called Spa Remedease, and it’s easily the best place in Hood River to reduce muscle tension, improve your skin tone and just relax. Call us and we’ll make sure your stay in Hood River is nothing short of blissful.
