Located on the mighty Columbia River, a quick two hour drive from Portland, Arlington is a paradise for water lovers. Take a picnic and spend the afternoon swimming at the lush Earl Snell Memorial Park. Perfect your balance on a stand-up paddle board or try your hand at windsurfing.
Back on dry land, Arlington is a gateway to outdoor adventures and natural wonders. For sweeping river views and family-friendly fun, hit the links at the professionally-designed China Creek Golf Course. Go back in time with a visit to the nearby John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, whose hills contain an impressive collection of prehistoric fossils, hiking trails, and scenic views. Don’t miss the Painted Hills, one of Oregon’s 7 Wonders, and its otherworldly layers of soil in shades of red, gold, and black.
