Communities Powered by Travel: The Columbia Gorge
Travel Oregon premiered the Gorge Tourism Studio Communities Powered by Travel video at the recent Columbia Gorge Tourism Summit on Oct. 30, 2018. As the eighth installment of the Communities Powered by Travel video series, this film showcases the results of the Gorge Tourism Studio and highlights the destination’s progress on the 15-year vision it developed in partnership with 225 tourism stakeholders within a bi-state region that encompasses the National Scenic Area and two of the Cascade peaks, Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams.
Key projects highlighted in the film include the development of the Columbia Gorge Tourism Alliance, advancing car-free transportation options, implementing the vision of the region-wide Gorge Towns to Trails hiking loop and developing visitor communications to inspire responsible recreating.
