Hood River, Oregon

This modern city of about 7,000 resembles Duluth, MN with the hills which create distinct areas and contrast with the lower regions of town. Again, the built-up zone around the Columbia River is similar to that around Lake Superior in Duluth.

An ideal microclimate for orchards exists here and the crop is mostly pears, which flourish to such an extent that about 45% of the US crop of pears comes from this location. Apples and cherries also grow in abundance and there are wineries. The conjunction of the Columbia River Gorge and the Cascade Mountain Range, along with the confluence of the Columbia and Hood Rivers, create this unique climate. The crops provide fresh food sources for local restaurants as well as being used for export.

Hood River is also known as the Wind Surfing Capital of the world. Good kayaking, mountain biking, hiking and skiing can also be had here.

A variety of campgrounds are handy, including a couple of state parks, a county park, a national forest park and commercial RV parks.
