My husband and I are planning a long weekend trip to Oregon for our anniversary in mid/late April. I orginally thought the Willamette Valley would be a great destination, but I read that April is the perfect time for the Columbia River Gorge. We enjoy the outdoors, but also love good food and wine! I am open to a diverse itinerary, but don't want to push too hard as it is supposed to be relaxing. I think we would prefer staying in one location for sleeping accommodations. We live in Phoenix, so I am not overly concerned with the rain, we actually don't mind it as we don't get it often.
