Downtown Camas, just 20 miles east of Portland, provides the perfect setting for a day of dining and shopping – or a stopover on the way to the Columbia Gorge. This historic town’s restaurants, bars, and cafes serve dishes like sushi and Hawaiian fare, tacos on freshly made tortillas, and classic cocktails; they join the multitude of shops that dot the tree-lined streets, from olive oil and vinegars to olive oils and Navidi vinegars to soaps and handmade skin care products from Soap Chest. But Camas isn’t just about food and shopping: independent films and popular documentaries are shown daily on the two screens of the historic Liberty Theater.
