Hi, planning to visit Willamette Valley during 2nd week of October. Can we spend a day near Willamette Valley? What are the spots nearby where we can spend time as family?
I would stay in the north Willamette Valley area. Lots of quaint towns off to the west and many fabulous wineries and beautiful scenery. The wineries have a big open house during Thanksgiving weekend. Look online for info and maps.
We stayed at the Best Western Newberg Inn. Hotel is in a perfect place to visit the wineries. We liked the downtown area (a bit quaint), with a nice bookstore/coffeeshop (Chapters) and we also liked the First Street Pub for a drink and some interesting conversation with some locals.
