Hood River, Oregon

Hood River boasts a spectacular view of both Mount Hood and the Columbia River and has become a vacation spot for ever-increasing numbers of windsurfers, or sailboarders. Nearby recreational activities include fishing, skiing, and hiking.
The City of Hood River was incorporated on July, 1854, and is the county seat for Hood River County. Hood River is located at the junction of Highway 35 and Interstate 84. The Hood River toll bridge spans the Columbia River and connects the city with the communities of White Salmon and Bingen located in the state of Washington. Hood River is located approximately 60 miles east of Portland Oregon on I-84. It is 7 miles west of Mosier, and 21 miles west of The Dalles.
Major local industries include: orchards and fruit packing, telecommunications, timber, software design, and recreation (particularly windsurfing, hiking, and skiing). Hood River also boasts several microbreweries and vineyards. Hood River County is now responsible for the leading production of Anjou Pears in the world. Fruits and timber products are still the major sources of revenue, although industrial opportunities are growing, and the future years will bring even more new development.
