Community Spotlight – Hood River, The Dalles, and White Salmon
Settled along the Columbia River on the border between Washington and Oregon, sit three quaint, historical, and adventurous towns: White Salmon, Hood River, and The Dalles.
White Salmon, a city in Klickitat County, Washington, is abundant with outdoor activities. With Mount Adams, Mount Hood, the Columbia River Gorge, Gifford Pinchot National Forest, and the White Salmon River as the backyard to this smaller town, there’s plenty of opportunities for the adventure seeker. The town’s slogan, “the land where the sun meets the rain,” offers a quick peak into what this area can offer you: a charming town with a beautiful backdrop.
Shenna Hankin, Escrow Officer in AmeriTitle’s White Salmon branch, comments on the wonderful aspect of living in a smaller town: “You appreciate the simple pleasures in life a lot more! No matter the time of year, you can always find an adventure. Because of the enticing draw of the Colombia Gorge, I get the privilege of meeting people from all different walks of life, and gaining friendships of a lifetime.”
Only a 12 minute drive over the Columbia River, White Salmon’s neighbor, Hood River, is a picturesque waterfront town that is incredibly popular for its windsurfing destination. Hood River’s annual event, the Hood River Valley Harvest Fest was nominated as one of the best harvest festivals in 2012 by FoodandWine.com.
Although not a small town, The Dalles too meets on the Columbia River, and is only a 20 minute drive from Hood River. The Dalles is the largest city of Wasco County, Oregon, and is the largest city in Oregon along the Columbia River. In 2006, Google bought land near the Columbia River to begin building a major data center!
