Not only is the landscape beautiful, but there are endless Hood River activities to do too. Take a look at a list of our favorites.

Hang Out at Hood River Waterfront Park

Go for a midday swim, let the kids run around on the playground, and chill out on the sandy beach. Kick back and enjoy the spectacular view afforded to you from this lovely park, and all the seasonal colors. Pack a picnic beforehand and make a whole day of it!

Hood River Valley Harvest Fest

This is a great way to wind down after a fun day at the Waterfront Park. The harvest season is an important time here in Hood River, and visiting this festival is the best way to experience it for yourself. Explore the stands of over 100 vendors set against the picturesque views of Mt. Hood and the sparkling Colombia River.

Drive the Hood River County Fruit Loop

Take this lovely scenic drive and stop along the way at the many farms and orchards, cideries and wineries, and even restaurants. Take the family to pick veggies, apples, pears, berries, flowers, and even lavender. Nothing will put you in the autumn mood more than handpicked fruit!


Along with other fun water activities like kayaking, catamaran sailing, and jet ski rentals, Hood River Waterplay offers windsurfing lessons that you should absolutely take advantage of. Windsurfing is a blast, and it’s an excellent way to make the most of your Hood River experience.

Standup Paddleboarding

If windsurfing is a little too exciting, consider taking the family to try out standup paddleboarding. Take a SUP lesson with Hood River Waterplay if you’ve never done it before!

This is a great alternative to windsurfing if you head out to the water on a day with no wind, and it’s a great way to relax and do something thrilling at the same time.
