If you love taking road trips and enjoying beautiful sites, then Hood River is the place for you. A basecamp in Oregon, Hood River provides two amazing byways for you with scenes you are sure to enjoy; they are the Historic Columbia River Highway (70 miles) and Mount Hood Byway (105 miles).

  • Begin from Mount Hood Byway down south toward Mount Hood itself.

As you drive on, you will come across Hood River County Fruit Loop. This is a scenic drive spanning 35 miles which is evident by the vast orchards of apples, pear, peach, nectarine, as well as home-made foods and vegetables. Now you can personally make your fruit and food selection.

  • Moving on, the next scenic view you will encounter is Mt. Hood Meadows.

It becomes open during summer for visitors to enjoy rides on the chairlift that will expose them to a bird’s eye view of the scenes. Remember to see the Timberline Lodge while you are here.

  • The next stop is the Columbia River Highway which is 103 years in 2019.

Sure, you do not want to miss one of the most historic and scenic roads in the United States. The sights here keep attracting visitors to take relaxing drives on this “King of Roads”. You will indeed enjoy weaving along this road through the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, seeing beautiful waterfalls and vistas, charming communities where you can get all the amenities you need to feel comfortable during your time here. Furthermore, as you drive from west to east, you should stop at some popular places like the Bridge of Gods, Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Museum, Vista House, and Crown Point, Bonneville Lock and Dam. Take a waterfall hike for what is this sight-seeing without one?

  • Cycling would be the perfect option for you to explore.

Go explore the car-free section of the Historic Columbia River Highway and State Trail which is between Mosier and Hood River. If you are a visitor, you can rent a bike; it’s only 4.5 miles. Begin your ride at the Mark O. Hatfield Trailhead West and at the end, you can stop at Mosier to eat or for a visit to the Mosier Farmers Market.

Now that you have seen the sights and done some exercise (cycling), what’s next? A visit to Spa Remedease! This is where you can get the most amazing spa treatment to relax those aching bones, and simply unwind. Visit Hood River’s most popular spa, Spa Remedease and you will not regret it.
