Since the town’s inception, downtown Hood River has been the cultural and commercial capital of Hood River County and the Columbia River Gorge. The historic buildings that add so much charm to the downtown streets today are, in many cases, the same ones that housed the first settlers and shop keepers of Hood River.
The boutiques, shops, restaurants, galleries, and outfitters that comprise Hood River’s downtown businesses provide the highest levels of customer service, and they dispense some of the best local’s only knowledge you can find. Head downtown for a gallery opening, to sip wine with a friend, or to find the perfect jacket for your next adventure, and take a few extra minutes next time you wander Oak or Cascade to read the historic placards on display outside of the town’s first buildings.
Hood Riverites take a great deal of pride in the inviting nature and impeccable cleanliness of our downtown, and we are excited to share our home with you.
