There is a magic created by combining natural resources, metropolitan access, and small community caring and capacity. That magic is present in the West Columbia Gorge. From outstanding locations for business opportunities to great living for families, the West Columbia Gorge is the place for you to relocate your home and your business.

The Columbia River Gorge stretches for more than 80 miles through the Cascade Range. The Columbia River separates the States of Oregon and Washington with this amazing geographic wonder. Recreation in the gorge is abundant, with activities including hiking, camping, biking, golf, whitewater rafting and kayaking, windsurfing, kiteboarding, sailing, boating, fishing, skiing, and the list goes on. Indoor options are equally plentiful with world class museums, wine tasting, brew pubs, superb dining opportunities, shopping and entertainment opportunities. The Columbia Gorge is simply a great place to live and work.

If you have a business interest and would like to have an opportunity to find a great home, the West Columbia Gorge is the location for Troutdale, Wood Village, Fairview, and Cascade Locks. The presence of several of these communities in the Portland Metropolitan boundary gives that unique urban availability, while locating in friendly, small communities.
