There’s a certain poetry of a fishing line. You hold your hopes and ambitions on the handle, with a hook dangling in suspense of whether those efforts will turn out fruitful or come up with a peaceful emptiness that can only lead to another attempt on another day. Troutdale, Oregon, knows this delicate sonnet well. And you can watch this narration of splendor at the watering hole of Lewis and Clark State Recreation Site in town. Here you’ll find ponds brimming with trout, with their gills slow and tails fast. Make your own story of glory here, with a stay at our Troutdale hotels. It’s time to reel in your own tales of the big one that didn’t get away.
Appropriately enough, Troutdale was founded by an explorer himself: sea captain John Harlow. He saw the ponds bulging with fish and knew that he wanted to live out his days amongst the hooks and reels. Over a century later, you too can do the same. Sit along the same lakes Lewis and Clark once camped at, and watch as your fishing line begins to bob in earnest. And if you want a silver platter for a fish supper, slip into our Troutdale rental cars to the brick-lined downtown. You’ll find an array of antique shops filled with dusty treasures just waiting for someone to pluck them up from the shelves. Find the gems, and enjoy a lemon-spritzed fish dinner in our Troutdale motels. You’ve earned the best meal of your life. Cheers to you, adventurer.
Come add a new chapter to the story of your life when you vacation in Oregon. Stay in one of Travelocity’s hotels in Troutdale close to the lakes and creeks, so you’re only steps away from the big catch of the day. And if you hear the call of the “City of Roses,” go ahead and explore with our Portland hotel deals. See the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, and lavish in its poetry.
