Fodor's Review

Either by car or bicycle, tour the quiet country highways of Hood River Valley, which abounds with more than 25 fruit stands, a handful of U-pick berry farms, and about 10 wineries. You'll see apples, pears, cherries, and peaches fertilized by volcanic soil, pure glacier water, and a conducive harvesting climate. Along the 35 miles of farms are a host of outlets for delicious baked goods, wines, flowers, and nuts. While on the loop, consider stopping in the small town of Parkdale to lunch, taste beer at Solera Brewery, and snap a photo of Mt. Hood's north face.
