Hood River: Windsurfing and a Charming Downtown
Thrill seekers know Hood River as the windsurfing/kiteboarding capital of the world. The biking isn’t bad, either. Foodies revere it as a central player in the local foods movement and the home of craft brewers, winemakers and the Hood River Country Fruit Loop … not to mention part of the nation’s largest pear-producing region. Take a scenic ride aboard the Mount Hood Railroad. Add in a charming downtown with shops and restaurants galore and jaw-dropping views wherever you look, and you’ll see why Hood River is such an attractive destination.
