Sandy, Oregon is the perfect home base for all your winter, spring, and summer recreation plans on Mt. Hood. But, don't let your adventurous spirit stop you from exploring the town's cool shops and eateries. Stop and stay a while in Sandy and check out some of our favorite haunts: 

Otto's Ski and Mountain Bike: Otto's Ski and Mountain Bike opened in 1984. They are a family owned and operated outdoor recreation store specializing in ski, snowshoe, SUP, kayaking and mountain biking equipment for the whole family. Come here for rentals or to invest in your very own kit.

Joe's Donut Shop: In 1974, a high school kid named Joe decided he wanted to start making donuts. 40+ years later and Joe's Donut Shop is making their same delicious recipes that they did when they first opened. Both a local and nationally acclaimed donut shop, Joe's is the perfect carbo load before a day of mountain fun. 

AntFarm Cafe, Bakery, and Cultural Arts Center: The Cultural Arts Center connected to the AntFarm Cafe showcases art from around the region. You might just find the perfect Mt. Hood inspired art to take home with you to remember you visit. 

Mad Dogz Hobbies: Do you drone? If so, Mad Dogz is here to serve all of your needs. Whether you need some new parts to fix up your flying contraption or are looking to invest in a drone to capture the gorgeous views from the Mt. Hood National Forest, you will be able to find what you are looking for here. 

Lori Ryland Art Studio and Gallery: Lori Ryland is an accomplished photographer and painter who has brought her love of Oregon and art to the town of Sandy. In her studio and gallery you can view her latest work, the work of local talent, or tap into your own artistic skill set in one of her many art classes. Our favorites are her Paint Nites which include a glass of wine to elevate the imagination. 

Sandy Historical Society and Museum: The Sandy Historical Society Museum is located on what once was the historic Barlow Road, the last portion of the Oregon Trail. Today, this museum houses the amazing stories of the pioneers that made their way through the area in the great migration from the 1840's thru 1870's. This is a must stop visit when you are in town.
