The people of Hood River County are bonded by much more than proximity. The land and water that surround us, the mountains that stand guard over us, they shape a part of each person that calls this place “home.”

History & Heritage

From notable landmarks such as the Barlow Road, which took pioneers along the Oregon Trail up and over Mt. Hood to the Historic Columbia River Gorge Highway, which is being restored mile by mile, you don’t have to travel far within Hood River County to feel like you’ve stepped back in time.

Weddings, Meetings, and Special Events

Hood River’s close proximity to the Portland International Airport also makes it a favorite among families, companies and others seeking a crowd-pleasing setting for their special event or occasions. With dramatic features such as snow-capped Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams and the basalt cliffs of the Columbia Gorge serving as backdrops, it’s no surprise that Hood River County is becoming a wildly popular destination for couples ready to tie the knot.
