Travel another 15 miles south and you will cross the border into bustling Portland, Oregon. The close proximity of the Portland International Airport offers convenient airline travel options for out-of-state visitors.
Nine miles to the north of the Fairgrounds is the site of the new Ilani Casino Resort. Developed by the Cowlitz Tribe and Salishan-Mohegan, Ilani features 100,000 square feet of gaming space with more than 2,500 slots and 75 gaming tables, plus 15 different restaurants, bars and retail outlets. No matter where you live, this is a destination worth the trip- and a weekend stay!
