Van Mall Explores Hood River Fruit Loop

Van Mall Explores Hood River

Located in Vancouver, Washington Van Mall is a premiere senior living community offering independent living and assisted living services. Our residents enjoy a wide range of activities and programs with regular excursions that take advantage of our prime location. Residents and staff recently enjoyed a trip to Hood River Fruit Loop. Learn more about their trip and how Van Mall encourages residents to stay active and engaged through regular outings.

The Hood River County Fruit Loop is located in the scenic Hood River Valley at the foot of Mt. Hood. With nearly 30 vendor stands, the loop offers a variety of wines, fruits, vegetables, flowers, ciders, and food.

Van Mall ventured to the Hood River County Fruit Loop and residents spent the afternoon enjoying the different stands. The afternoon started with lunch at Full Sail Brewing Company, a local and sustainable brewery. After lunch, residents drive through orchards, vineyards, and family farms, stopping at the Apple Valley Country Store and Bakery, best known for their fresh fruit pie and milkshakes.

After we finished shopping, we explored Marchesi Vineyards & Winery for an afternoon of wine tasting in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge Setting.

Our residents and staff both thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.

“One of my favorite parts of taking residents on these outings is seeing the enjoyment on their face as we explore new things!” – Destiny, Van Mall Program Supervisor

“Today was the perfect day.” – Resident Lora Stoudt

“Van Mall is such a blessing to be able to grout and do fun things.” – Resident Sharon Ackermann

At Van Mall, we truly enjoy each exploring all that the Vancouver area has to offer together. Van Mall encourages and empowers seniors to make the most of every day, try new things, and fully participate in all of our engaging activities. Stop by Van Mall today to join in on the fun!
