“Make the Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Had to make the time to read and view all the pictures and history. The drive and determination plus vision to create something so beautiful. The us of the figure 8 to get you to the bottom is just wow

“Fantastic. Must see ”

Not far from the highway. Great view, history and architecture. It is a must see if you drive along the gorge.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Spectacular panoramic view of the Columbia river from a high elevation. The beauty and grace of the Vista House is impressive and it's more that just a observation point. Almost missed this attraction but glad we stopped.

“A rest stop from the gilded era. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

A stained glass and marble beauty built in an era when luxury was the mark of a successful community. The pride and workmanship of this structure is exceeded only by the view from the stunning location it was built upon. Don't miss it.
