We took our cousin's cabin cruiser down the Willamette River close to downtown Portland last month (August, 2018). It had been in the nineties until the day we decided to spend the day on the river, but it was in the low sixties (and felt...More

The Willamette Valley offers something for everyone. Hiking, biking, arts, waterfalls, shopping, micro-brews, restaurants and a beautiful view of snow capped mountains. The Willamette River is a Hallmark view as is the Columbia River.

We were somewhat disappointed in the Willamette Valley experience. The towns were far from quaint, the views mostly below expectation, pours were tiny, expensive and rushed. Wines were just average. Lunch was far from memorable. Napa, Sonoma, Virginia, North Carolina were better.

The valley: full of filberts, cane berries, vineyards, and breweries to name just a few. Lived here much of my entire life and while the pollen really has begun to mess with me, I can't think of another location that is as beautiful in the...More

Use Portland as a base. I loved my hotel ( River’s Edge Hotel and Spa) because I was able to enjoy my down time or go into the downtown. The sauna and steam room were great after walking and exploring.

You may suffer slight delays on the coast to McMinnville piece of your trip, but probably nothing more than a slight irritant. You'll remain primarily west of the congested areas (Dundee)

Drive straight through and go to the Wine Country in Yamhill County. It's just south of Portland and we have some of the best wine in the country. It is ansolutly stunning scenery too!
