The Hood River runs along the northern Oregon border, which meets many towns and villages on its route. Yet, there are also a number of natural attractions that keep people coming back year after year to enjoy the stunning landscape. It is a place that instills a sense of calm in all who visit, and which is best enjoyed by having your best furry friend by your side. This is why it’s a great idea to stay in a dog-friendly vacation rental, so that you can explore the wilderness together. Follow the Columbia Gorge, where you can find wild canyon views, which are lined with lush trees, and visit Hood River Waterfront Park. This is the perfect place for a daytime walk, or even to have a picnic as you take in the view.
