10 Fun Things to Do Near The Gorge in George, WA

Situated along the Columbia River and Wanapum Lake, The Gorge has got to be one of America's best outdoor concert venues! Now that it's time for the summer concert season to commence, you need to make some plans for what you're going to be doing in between your venture. Trip Advisor has some great tips but I've got one, too, so I'm saving it for the last on the list!

  1. Hike along one of the Trails: Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park Interpretive Center,and the Ancient Lakes Trail.
  2. Sip on Your Trip at the Wineries: Several wineries await you near The Gorge including Beaumont Cellars, White Heron Cellars, Chris Daniel Winery, and Errant Cellars.
  3. Hit up a Gem Shop: Ginko Gem Shop: It's on the way to The Gorge in the city of Vantage, WA. They are open 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. every single day unless the weather is bad.
  4. Go Camping (When in Rome...): Wildhorse Campground, Gorge Oasis Campground, Crescent Bar RV Resort and there's camping at The Gorge site, too.
  5. Dine Out near The Gorge:

  9. Stop and Smell the Lavender: Visit Trinity Gardens Lavender Farm on the way back from your concert trip to The Gorge! They are open Tuesdays thru Saturdays from April to September from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. but you'll want to email them first to make an appointment.
  10. Skinny Dipping: There is a hidden place where people like to go skinny dipping in Vantage. Let's just say if you and I were playing the drinking game, "Never Have I Ever" and the question was "Drink if you have never skinny dipped in Vantage lake", you would be drinking and I would not! Okayyyy! I am not going to tell you where it is, but you can discover this spot yourself by reading through this Reddit blog yourself!
