Gorge Tourism Studio

The Gorge Tourism Studio, offered by Travel Oregon in partnership with 26 agencies and organizations, concluded in Spring 2016. The  program focused on communities in Oregon and Washington within the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and those surrounding Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood.

Program Overview

The Gorge Tourism Studio program was a series of tourism development workshops designed to assist communities interested in stimulating their local economies through sustainable tourism development, while protecting and enhancing local resources.

As a result of the program, Travel Oregon and the program organizers observed an increase in bi-state collaboration to shape the future of a growing tourism economy in the Columbia River Gorge.
