Remember 10 years ago when vampires were popular?
Several scenes from the movie "Twilight" were filmed in Kalama, a picturesque town on the banks of the Columbia River in southwest Washington.
Vampire nostalgia aside, Kalama is perfect for a chill weekend getaway. Visit Marina Park, where miles of riverfront lined with ships and towering totem poles make for a fun family stroll. In town you’ll find quirky antique shops and the kid-friendly Willie Dick’s Tap House (kids will love the Scooby Snack: a hot dog with peanut butter).
Book a night at McMenamins’ new Hawaiian-inspired Kalama Harbor Lodge, and wrap up your weekend with fishing, hiking, kayaking or a 30-minute drive into Portland.
