The Dalles, Oregon, is located approximately 80 miles east of Portland at the eastern edge of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Our community enjoys 300 days of sunshine annually and sees less than 12 inches of rain, making it a haven for a vast array of recreational activities, including world-class windsurfing and kite boarding, cycling, skiing, fishing, hunting, and white-water rafting.
The Dalles is the largest city and county seat of Wasco County, Oregon, United States. The name of the city comes from the French word dalle (meaning either "sluice" or "flagstone" and refers to the columnar basalt rocks carved by the river), which is why the French-Canadian employees of the North West Company called the now-inundated rapids of the Columbia River between the present-day city and Celilo Falls.
The population of The City of The Dalles was 13,470 in July 2007 and serves a catchment area of over 100,000 for services and retail.
The city – right along I-84 – is well-connected to Portland (87 Miles) and neighboring Hood River (17 miles) to the west; Hermiston (100 miles), Pendleton (125 miles) and Kennewick (130 miles) to the east; Yakima (100 miles) to the north; and Bend (100 miles) to the south. Along with countless small charming towns on the way to/from any of these destinations and wildly varied, breath-taking scenery.
