The Dalles Oregan
The Dalles is on the banks of the Columbia River less than 85 miles east of Portland Oregan. A charming town and very popular tourist spot for both Oregan folks and beyond. Known as the cherry capital of the world it also produces some award winning wines.
The Dalles location on the Columbia River and in the shadow of Mount Hood along with over 300 days of sunshine makes it very obvious why people visit here. It serves as the eastern gateway to the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.
As mentioned earlier The Dalles is home to some very good award winning wines. Take a wine tour and experience some of this high quality wine.
There is something for everyone to do. Fishing, biking, hiking and river rafting will keep the more energetic people satisfied. Less than an hour away is the impressive Mt. Hood (11 250ft). An ideal setting for skiers, hikers and mountain climbers.
The city is rich in history being one of the oldest communities in North America. Described as the end of the Origan Trail where the pioneers used to load their wagons into rafts and barges and float down the Columbia River heading for Origan City.
The Dalles History.
The Dalles is one of the oldest inhabited places in North America. Today the city services over 87 000 residents in the Wasco, Sherman, Gilliam, Wheeler and Hood River Counties. Originally The Dalles was a trading post for the Native American Tribes.
