Dufur, Oregon: Small Town Surrounded by Mountain Scenery

Dufur is a small village set in the Columbia River Gorge, just a little over 90 miles from Portland. Nearby attractions include the Maryhill Museum of Art, located just across the state line in Goldendale, Washington. This small but expertly curated museum features an outdoor sculpture collection and work by Auguste Rodin and Art Nouveau glassworkers, along with a constantly changing slate of visiting exhibits.

The real draw in Dufur, however, is the great outdoors. The area is perfectly positioned to enjoy more sunshine than the rest of the state gets, and it's minutes from the hiking trails of Mt. Hood National Forest and the banks of the Columbia River. If you're in the mood for some beautiful scenery and delicious wine, you can visit six nearby wineries for tours and tastings.
