We had ideal weather and a perfectly clear (and unseasonably warm) day to explore the Willamette Valley. Beautiful!

Lots of small farming communities with delightful cafes and small shops. Historical Society museums, covered bridges and lovely parks are also found. Roadside stands for vegetables and fruits in season. A great area for a lazy Sunday drive or a weekend.

I had a few hours to kill and drove miles of the scenic loop out of Forest Grove. I visited a few wineries and took in some beautiful scenery. I'll definitely return for a longer visit.

I live here and visit new things every year. We have the Octoberfest in the 2nd week of September in Mt. Angel to the Tulip and Iris festivals in April and May. You can visit Canby and find antiques like those of your grandparents youth. Don't miss Enchanted Forrest just south of Salem that is open from March to Fall... More

From the drive in to the Williamette Valley, to the food and the winery visits and wine-tasting, everything was enjoyable. I will be back in a heartbeat, esp. when the flowers are blooming in the spring and summer.

The date may be a little off (not exactly sure) but near Woodburn is an amazing tulip farm. For acres and acres you can see stripes of color....white, red, yellow, purple that will imbed in your memory for life. Lots of flowers for sale and other activities available.

The Willamette Valley, while no longer a secret, is still very much worth the trip for those visiting the Portland area for at least a few days. Only a 35-40 minute drive from PDX, the various towns in the Willamette Valley including Dundee and McMinville are host to some of the best Wineries in the United States, and perhaps the... More

What I loved about Willamette was that is was so diverse, not a monogamous stretch of vineyards. The lush green countryside was dotted with orchards, vineyards, straw farms, green fields and even a kiwi far. The wines we tried were exception especially those at Alexana, which also had a stunning view and Rocco.

Many wineries along the way....a bit pricey. We enjoyed a lovely restaurant Tina after spending the afternoon tasting wines.
