Around Town

At first glance, Estacada is your stereotypical Oregon oasis: tree-covered parks, a gushing scenic river, a local craft brewery, a weekly farmers market and strangers who quickly become friends. But this woodsy city, just 30 miles southeast of Portland, is anything but ordinary. Known as the “gateway to the Clackamas River,” Estacada is a one-stop shop for wilderness, culture and community. It’s a historic city ready to be re-discovered.

Find the unexpected adventure, or discover uncommon art. All right next door. Take a walking tour of more than 20 large-scale, full-color murals that capture and celebrate Estacada’s rich heritage.  Stroll by the river or visit our unique shops and galleries.  Visit our bike plaza on your way up the Cascading Rivers Scenic Bikeway, and plan your activities using our state-of-the-art, mobile-interactive kiosk. Stop by one of several breweries or Cider Farm for a locally brewed craft beverage or dine at a local food cart or locally owned and operated restaurants.  Enjoy revitalized downtown, but wander a bit more and discover antiques, marketplaces, unique farms and our Farmers’ Market (from May through September).
