This is a great trip from Portland. Don't miss it. Go on the old route. Stop a Wilmette Falls, hike to the top (if you are young enough), lovely restaurant there. Continue on to the "fruit loop". Yes Oregon is the place for fruit, cherries, berries (many kinds, some you never heard of), pears (in season) apples and watch the... More

The rolling hills here--just an hour outside Portland--are beautiful. There are many wineries, so do some research and choose one or two before you drive out.

Great area, scenery, people, etc.... and great for wine tasting, especially for the Pinot family- much less crowded than Sanoma and other "well known" options

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
