For the outdoorsy types (you know who you are) there are a wealth of options in the region. You can do the Mt. Hood Scenic Route, which takes you along Highway 26 through the villages of Mt. Hood: Welches, Sandy, Government Camp. There’s also Timberline Lodge. This historic lodge was built 75 years ago as a result of the President Franklin Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration. It might look a little familiar to you (think The Shining).

The area is great for hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, and tubing.
