Top 6 Things to do in La Grande, United States

February 9, 2018 Emerita Lamoureux

La Grande /ləˈɡrænd/ is a city in Union County, Oregon, United States. Originally named "Brownsville," it was forced to change its name because that name was being used for a city in Linn County. Its name comes from an early French settler, Charles Dause, who often used the phrase "La Grande" to describe the area's beauty. The population was 13,082 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat of Union County. La Grande lies east of the Blue Mountains and southeast of Pendleton.

Blue Mountain Outfitters is a really cool shop, and the people who work there aren't too cool to help you find what you need. I am usually turned off by employees of outdoor stores, but not here. I came in looking for a cinch sac for my old North Face bag and due to a magical sale price, I walked out with a whole new bag for not much more. Plus, I could ask advice about sleeping bags without feeling pressured to spend more on a "nicer" one.

Blue Mountain prices are reasonable and they have a nice used gear selection to peruse! Definitely recommend this place while in La Grande.

Interesting antique collectible store with eclectic mix of low priced articles: professional quality antique photos, vintage clothing, furniture, jewelry, etc.

Reviewed By lagodegypsy - oregon

This store is very eclectic. It has a great selection of costume jewelry, historic photos, vintage textiles, etc. It also has a huge selection of new knives by famous makers and collectible knives and the owner will profesionally sharpen yours for a very reasonable price. And, unlike a lot of other stores, the prices are very reasonable.

Hilgard Junction State Park

Reviewed By Joseph M - La Grande, Oregon

Hilgard is next to the Grande Ronde River and just off I-84 about 6 miles West of La Grande. Kids can run around and play by the river. Late summer the river is generally low and the kids can wade in safely. There are picnic tables available. There is also a Geocache hidden there for those that like to look for these caches. There are 18 campsites with water nearby. There is a small Oregon Trail interpretive shelter. There are horseshoe pits and restrooms.
