Mt Hood, Oregon: 7 Ways To Explore It
I recently discovered a new favorite long weekend getaway, just a 30-minute drive from Portland. Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory has something to fit all traveling styles, including a couple’s romantic getaway or a vacation with the kids (like in my case). Outdoor adventures are plentiful here, whether counting tulips at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn or playing tetherball while kids hit the playground on Fir Point Farms in Aurora. Join me as we explore Oregon City’s surroundings, from its many wineries to a creamery and more.
My passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow. The best part of travel to me now is getting to see the world through their eyes. Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
