The Dalles Main Street Program supports Downtown The Dalles as a great place for locals and visitors alike to spend time and do business! The Dalles downtown has a lot to offer from business services to restaurants to retail stores.
The downtown area is also a recognized Historic Commercial District by the National Register of Historic Places. There are several murals that can be found on various downtown buildings which add color and history to the area. There is lots to see during a leisurely stroll through Historic Downtown The Dalles! Come visit!
