One of the best things about Hood River is how some of the activities and events held there are season-dependent, so to speak. This means some of them gain momentum during winter while others see more attention during summer; a couple more suit the rest of the season.

Having said that, there are still many activities which are great throughout the year, so it matters little if your holiday happens to take place during any of the seasons; you’ll still have a swell time. Written below are great year-round things you can do in Hood River.

  • WAAAM

If you can ignore its incongruous yet amusing acronym, the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum is one of the best places you can visit in Hood River. There are other museums of the like but none are as great as this one. It’s no secret that the WAAAM has one of the largest collections of vintage yet still-operational automobiles and airplanes in the entire country.

There’s a play area that can also cater to your kids for hours and if you have more hours to spare, head on over to the salmon and hydropower production. It’s located quite close to the Bonneville Lock and Dam Visitor Center (also worth checking out).

  • Water Park

Here’s something for the kids. Hood River’s Waterfront Park has everything you would ever need for hours of fun and games in the water. You can join your kids too, then head over to any restaurant nearby and grab yourself a lunch once you’re done with the park. There are shops downtown, some of them open 24/7, and you can find wares that should interest your friends or anyone in your family.

  • The Twin Tunnels of the Historic Columbia River Highway

The Historic Columbia River Highway is perhaps one of the most kid-friendly trails in the region. It starts at the ‘Mark O. Hatfield West Trailhead’, which is a 5-mile long trail section that has been closed to vehicles.

The trail offers you some incredible views of the famous Historic Columbia River and the 2 tunnels dubbed the ‘Twin Tunnels’; trail itself is often called America’s ‘King of Roads’. It ends close to Mosier, a small town that’s worth exploring if you have the time to spare.

You can either rent a bike and speed over the trail or just go on a hike. Any gear you might need will be available at nearby shops, so that’s one less thing you need to worry about.

Another thing you don’t have to worry about is where to relax and have your fatigue worn off.
