Downtown Camas, just 20 miles east of Portland, provides the ideal setting for a day of eating and shopping — or a stopover on the way to the Columbia Gorge. Restaurants, bars, cafes, and a bustling mid-week farmers market in this historic town serve things like sushi and Hawaiian food, tacos on freshly made tortillas, and classic cocktails; they join the bounty of boutiques that dot the tree-lined streets, from the olive oil and vinegars at Navidi’s Olive Oils & Vinegars to the Soap Chest’s hand-made soaps and skincare products. But there’s more to Camas than just food and shopping — independent films and popular documentaries show daily on the two screens at the historic Liberty Theatre as well as a full slate of events organized by the Downtown Camas Association.
