Holiday Shopping and Gift Wrapping Getaway
By: Mary Pellegrini
Enjoy a relaxing getaway while getting a jump on your holiday shopping. A perfect time for girlfriends, guys and couples looking for a little R&R before the hectic Holiday events. Pick up your holiday pies and wines. There are many unique shops and boutiques in Hood River and the surrounding area. Begin your holiday shopping with a getaway at the Old Parkdale Inn. After downtown shopping meander your way through the Hood River Valley stopping at the venues on the Fruit Loop. With lavender farms, yarn shops, alpaca boutiques, bakeries, country stores, wineries and more you are sure to find a unique gift for everyone on your list. Arrive back at the inn to light dinner, dessert and beverages and a relaxing evening set aside for wrapping your treasures. Make sure you bring your wrapping paper.
