  1. One of the more unique things to do in Washington State, especially in an unpopulated area like the Columbia River Gorge, is stargaze at night.

  4. Head down to the river (on either side!) and watch the daring windsurfers battle the waves and wind on the Columbia River. 
  5. Explore the Maryhill Museum of Art, an unexpected cultural oasis in the Gorge. Here, you can enjoy a collection that includes Native American artifacts and European paintings.
  6. While there, visit the Stonehenge Memorial in Maryhill, a full-size replica of England’s Stonehenge¬†built as a World War I memorial.
