Sitting 20 miles west of Hood River on the banks of the Columbia River, Cascade Locks is a destination for sailing and boating enthusiasts. The Sternwheeler Columbia Gorge, the only provider of narrated day cruises on the mighty river, pushes off from Cascade Locks daily and offers brunch and dinner cruises on weekends and holidays. For an interpretive history of the region’s people, Lewis & Clark and the development of the river corridor, visit the Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center and Museum, located across the Bridge of the Gods from Cascade Locks.
