Indian Creek Golf Course's layout snakes through the Hood River Valley between a network of sprawling orchards and wineries with panoramic views of Mount Hood and Mount Adams creating a dramatic backdrop. Water comes into play on 11 holes, including three creeks that bisect fairways to disrupt play and tempt players to take fairway naps to the melodic babbling of their playing partners. On the par 5 fourth hole, precision is paramount, as the dogleg right is entirely fortified by water to the right and the small, narrow green make short putts strenuous with hard-to-read-breaks.

Indian Creek Golf Course won an Environmental Excellence award from Audubon International for its efforts in areas of wildlife and habitat management, chemical-use reduction, and water-quality management. The course and its surrounding land act as a sanctuary to a variety of wildlife, including several species of caddies now endangered because rampant cart use. Course at a Glance: * Par 72 * Three sets of tees * 6,150 yards from the back tees * Rating of 70.8 and slope of 128 from the back tees

As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

Though its once purely utilitarian features have been repurposed as a modern industrial-chic wine bar, Sunshine Mill Winery is still a monument to turn-of-the-century agriculture. The gravity mill’s belt-drive system, for instance, is still wholly intact, and its massive gears hang above the heads of sommeliers pouring Quenett and Copa Di Vino wines in the lounge area. And atop the structure that still houses the mill’s Thomas Edison–designed electric generator, musicians regularly perform to the crowds on the alfresco dining area below.

Museums have a reputation for housing dusty, fragile artifacts that normally shouldn't be touched. But the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum is a different breed. Its passionate staff and crew of volunteers have collected and restored hundreds of historical cars, planes, and other vehicles, all of which they regularly start up and drive.

  • Size: not surprisingly, the museum is located in an indoor hangar that stretches for more than 2.5 acres and can take more than a day to fully explore
  • Eye Catcher: larger antique tractors, trucks, and military Jeeps loom over a fleet of their smaller siblings
  • Permanent Mainstay: the Curtiss JN-4D "Jenny" from 1917 was lovingly restored by the museum's experts, who even applied the plane's finish the traditional way: with horsehair brushes. These planes were standard training aircraft for pilots in WWI.
  • Don't Miss: seven different Ford Model T's from model years 1914?1927
  • Hidden Gems: the museum has almost 30 vintage motorcycles hiding beneath airplane wings and between cars. Guests are encouraged to try and spot all the hogs, including several Harley-Davidsons and one extra-elusive one named Waldo
  • Special Programs: every "Second Saturday" of the month is a volunteer action day, when expert volunteers fire up the display vehicles for driving and flying demos

Windsurfing on placid rivers. Snapping photos of gushing waterfalls. Scaling snow-covered mountains. Backpacking through teeming forests. The landscape at Columbia Gorge Teen Camps lends itself perfectly to the to the diverse needs of the four camps that take place on its grounds each summer: windsurfing, photography, climbing and mountaineering, and high adventure. Windsurfers practice their craft for about three hours a day, while budding photographers spend almost all day in the field, hiking up to 5 miles to nab shots of Mt. Hood and stage high-fashion shoots of fish in Hood River. Smith Rock State Park serves as a part-time base camp for climbing campers, and high-adventure campers conclude their hiking, biking, and canoeing explorations with a trek up Mt. St. Helens. No matter what their chosen camp, each camper will have access to outdoor activities such as kayaking, biking, and volleyball. The idea for Columbia Gorge Teen Camps came from Dr. Bob Hanson, Professor Emeritus at San Diego State University. Noticing a lack of outdoor camps, he founded Columbia Gorge as a place where teens could be enriched, challenged, and motivated by nature. His staff upholds his original mission through activities designed to build character and independence in kids on the brink of starting college, entering the work force, or telling their parents that they’re ready to see rated-R movies.
