Labor Day is the perfect excuse to plan a weekend getaway to a beautiful place, and three days is a great amount of time to experience the best that Hood River has to offer. You’re going to want to make the most of this Hood River Labor Day weekend trip, so take a look at our handy guide for enjoying Hood River in three days’ time!
The first day is great for sporty activities, while your energy levels are highest! Try out stand-up paddleboarding on the river. Grab a craft beer at the unrivaled Full Sail Brewing Company while you’re out and about! The river view is to die for, and the beer is delicious. You can even grab a free tour while you’re there. Some great shops to check out on your first day in town are Art on Oak for some great local art, and Hood River U-Pick Organic for some great local food.
Take a day trip up to Mt. Hood. By doing this, you’ll hit several major natural attractions all in one go, which is ideal for a weekend trip! Come and see the Colombia River Gorge and Multnomah Falls, some of the most gorgeous natural wonders in all of the northwest. The falls are accessible through the Historic Colombia River Highway. Once you come back down to Hood River after the long day in the mountains, try the delicious handmade pizza at Solstice Wood Fire, Pizza, Bar & Catering for dinner. You’ll love the rustic aesthetic there.
When Monday hits, you’ll really want to make the most of the day. Treat yourself to something extra relaxing, like a trip to Cathedral Ridge Winery for a wine tasting. Monday is also a good day to visit some unique and quirky places you can’t find anywhere else, like the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. On your last afternoon and evening, you’re definitely going to want to enjoy the local sights more than anything else. Take a hike on Mirror Lake Trail and grab some dinner by the river with a view.
