Hood River – The Wind Surfing Capital of the World

 

Hood River – The Wind Surfing Capital of the World

Are you searching for a small town in Oregon to relocate to that also has a lot of recreation options and things to do? If so, you should check the town of Hood River, the wind surfing capital of the world.

Located right off the Columbia River, Hood River was originally called Dog River until the post office was established at the site of the present city on September 30, 1858, and the city itself was incorporated in 1895.

Besides being so close to Portland, the town of Hood River offers tons of recreation options like wind surfing during the summer months, biking, hiking, fishing and of course skiing since residents here are just one hour from nearby Mount Hood.

Although it’s a great place to live if you enjoy an active lifestyle, the town of Hood River also offers a great arts scene and plenty of excellent restaurants and breweries to choose from as well.

About Hood River

Living in Hood River you will never get bored! There’s always plenty of annual cultural events including the Hood River Valley Blossom Time and Hood River Hard-Pressed Cider Fest, which take place in April; Hood River Hops Fest, and the Hood River Valley Harvest Fest, both in October. 

Did you know that FoodandWine.com identified the Harvest Fest as one of the Best Harvest Festivals in 2012? Every Labor Day, swimmers cross the Columbia River during the Roy Webster Cross-Channel Swim. Hood River hosted the US Windsurfing National Championships in 2009 and the Mount Hood Cycling Classic from 2002 to 2013.

Hood River is also a great place to visit during the winter months! To learn more about the area visit the City of Hood River website at http://hoodriver.org/.
