Our delightful shops, well-stocked stores, and local artisans offer everyday essentials and unique one-of-a-kind treasures. From A to Z, you’re likely to find many items and gifts you or others you’re buying for need, and maybe some you didn’t even know you need! White Salmon offers many special shops, and Bingen is home to one of the largest antique malls in the region. Well worth the stop - something for everyone!
The mid-Columbia River Gorge is also host to many special events through the year. These occur on both sides of the river, everything from Hood River’s Hop Fest, to the north shore’s Art and Wine Fusion, WAGAP's Food For All event, Skamania County's Blues & Brews Fest to the several county wide Gorge Artists Open Studio Tour. And there is plenty more. Check in on our Event Calendar when considering things to enjoy during your visit.
Washington Sales Tax
The State of Washington charges a 7% sales tax on most items, but don’t forget to ask before ringing up your items — many of your purchases could be tax-free if you’re an out-of-state visitor.
