9. The Gorge - George, WA
One look at The Gorge and it quickly becomes apparent why it’s the favorite venue of some of the biggest names in music. As if the stage itself wasn’t impressive enough, the Columbia River, along with sweeping views of the Washington foothills in the backdrop, adds drama to the experience regardless of who performs. Most notably the home of the Sasquatch! Music Festival, the Gorge has a capacity of 20,000, making it a prime destination for marquee music acts. This one certainly belongs on the old bucket list.
