The temp. is mild and the trees are great, the hills are great and the rivers are fun to swim in. There are museums to go to also.

The scenery alone made touring this region an enjoyable trip. Plus, the wineries and tasting rooms were also very appealing as well as the friendly atmosphere at all of the locations.

Wineries, beautiful farmland, Silver Falls, state capital (Salem), La Margarita (Salem), Corvallis farmers market, The Depot (Albany), Silverton, Sublimity Elementary School, vineyards on Memorial weekend, Oregon State University, Aspenwal's fruit stand (West Salem), Court Street Dairy Lunch (Salem) fall harvest season. This does not begin to tell the story of the Willamette Valley.

If you like Pinot noir wine, this is he place. The ara is abundant in wineries serving delicious red wine. Get local knowledge advice about the better vineyards as well as those that won't rip you off for a bottle to buy. The Willamette (pronounced like dammit) is a beautiful region meriting at least two days. We stayed in McMinnville... More

The fruitbowl for the Portland area. Many, many fruit trees. Plenty of opportunities to stop and buy fresh fruit and vegetables. It would be a nice place to ride a bicycle.

Willamette valley offers many beautiful hills, vineyards, orchard and just and great outdoor. I recommend you first figure out what you want to do. You can, for example tour the vinery, or pick apples in an orchard. It's all up to you. The area is rather big so many local PDX residents keep coming back and exploring the area over... More

Take a ride through this extremely popular wine region and you won't be disappointed. Hundreds of wineries await you, and some spectacular views. I'm not a big pinot fan, but the region puts out some great white wines as well, and you'll find some other big reds in the wineries that I found to be very good. Try to avoid... More

This is a wonderful day trip from downtown Portland. We spent half the day doing wine tastings and admiring the surrounding views of the vineyards. After a hefty and delicious lunch at Dundee bistro we made our way to The Wooden Shoe Tulip farm really an awesome and beautiful sight. Don't miss the Willamette Valley if you like antique shopping... More

The tastings were fun. Good wines, friendly hosts. The prices varied a lot from $5 for 9 samples to $10 for only 3.
