The Neighbor Dudes

Reviewed By Karen H - Hermiston, Oregon

What a great little place to sample a wide variety of beers. Each beer is listed with the alcohol by volume (ABU) and bitterness factor so it's easy to choose the right beer. The beer line-up changes often so you never know what you might find there. There are lots of different types of beer -- from stouts and ales to pilsners and IPAs -- Neighbor Dudes has it all. Sample give different types of beer for only $5 or bring your container and have it filled up with your favorite brew. It's a lot of fun!

Sno Road Winery

Reviewed By Rick j - Lynnwood, Washington

We found Sno Road Winery to be an oasis from the dreary interstate. We were warmly welcomed and enjoined tasting the variety of fine wines they produce. The atmosphere was relaxing. I really liked the unusual doors they incorporated into the decor. I will be back.

McNary Dam and the Pacific Salmon Visitor Information Center

Reviewed By Ed258536 - Kennewick, Washington

Lots of lawns. Quiet, peaceful, relaxing. The fish viewing area was interesting. The powerhouse was massive. You will need ID to get into the area. The lawn area was much cooler because of the mist from the dam. It was great on a warm day. I would go back again.

Hat Rock State Park

Reviewed By OurWanderingCasa - Burlington, Canada

We camped at the campground across the road where we picked up the leaflet for the state park. A pleasant surprise and interesting history. Made for a great afternoon walk to the rock formation and pond. Looked like a great spot for a family picnic, we were there mid-week in September so there were very few people enjoying the park.

The wines are good and the customer service is exemplary! We are from a farming family in another county in Oregon, and all wanted to see this grain elevator conversion. Very well done! Worth the 2-hour drive!

Had lunch her on business. Service was quick and the time it took for our food to arrive after we ordered it was very fast. Thank you. I had the Chicken Mole with rice and it was delicious. Very clean restaurant. Wait staff was friendly but could have been friendlier to attack repeat business.
