Every year people are moving to the Columbia River Gorge to embrace the amazing scenery and be part of the local community. The area has the most beautiful landscape varying from desert to forest, along with crown jewels: Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams. And of course there is the mighty Columbia River! Drive east and you are in the desert, north or south and you are in the mountains, west and you are in the city of Portland, and two hours later at the Pacific Ocean. It just doesn’t get any better than this!
The Columbia River Gorge is home to a diverse group of companies including Google, Insitu and Tofurky. Breweries, wineries, cideries and distilleries are all on the rise offering employment and jobs are also available in healthcare, government and agriculture. Outdoor activities attract thousands of people every year to the Columbia River Gorge which creates ample tourism opportunities.
