A Perfect Weekend in Hood River

The New York Times has taken notice of Oregon's Hood River and put together an amazing 36 hours of entertainment for a weekend adventure. This weekend schedule includes viewing waterfalls along the Columbia River Gorge, visiting the microbreweries, catching some wind on the water, the best places to grab a bite to even and even where to get your morning cup of Joe. Check out a sample of this easy weekend guide below.
5. Wind and Water | NoonEat lunch on the drive back down and head to Big Winds on Front Street, or the Big Winds Event Site Beach Center on the Columbia River, open mid-May to late September. Stand-up paddleboard rentals ($35 for two hours) and lessons with gear included ($49) are available daily, so hop on and paddle along the waterfront, or across the river on low-wind days. Up the ante with windsurf rentals ($25 for two hours for beginners; $55 for advanced) and lessons ($79) and head to the 20-plus launch locations up and down the river, including the famed Hatchery, where the pros catch big air. Afterward, stop in at Solstice Wood Fire Cafe & Bar to replenish with a Country Girl Cherry Pizza with chorizo and goat cheese ($13) and local wine.
SRC: Read New York Times full 36 hours in Hood River for the other 30 hours of fun.
