Seven Wonders of Oregon | Columbia River Gorge



There is no place like the Columbia River Gorge, it is the largest national scenic area in the country. So much of this beauty is visible from the highway including many waterfalls, others are just a short hike away. This area is so close to the city but when your there it feels like being in another world. Read more about what this wonder has to offer below.
Historic Columbia River Highway Scenic Byway: It’s easy to see why this scenic byway is known as the “King of Roads” — it’s a beautiful mix of visionary architecture, incredible scenery, and rich history.
Crown Point: Just a short drive from Portland, the Crown Point viewpoint offers a stunning look at the Gorge. The famous Vista House was built in 1916 at the same time as the Historic Columbia River Highway and is an iconic symbol of the Gorge.
