McMenamins Cosmic Road Trip 2021

January through April, 2021

Kick off 2021 with a Cosmic Road Trip and McMenamins as your guide! We’ll provide some fun along the way in the form of scavenger hunts, McMenamins quizzes and more. Once you finish that month’s route, you’ll be rewarded with a prize. Complete all four months and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a $500 McMenamins gift card!

How it works

  • Each month we designate three McMenamins Hotels.
  • To play, you will need to stay at least one night in each of those three designated hotels.
  • The overnight stays can be any date and in any order, but they must be at the three designated hotels in the same month.
  • Each hotel will have a different hunt or other fun activity associated with it.
  • Complete all three hotel stays and hunts in the same month and you’ll receive:
    • $30 gift card
    • Entry into a drawing for your choice of one of four McMenamins’ Experience Prizes
    • Passport stamps to show you did it! Passport not required for participation.

Featured Hotels by Month

  • January 2021 – Route #1 Water to Wine Country: Gearhart Hotel, Hotel Oregon & Grand Lodge

Welcome to your January Cosmic Road Trip! To snag your stamps, we’ve got a little hunt at each hotel for you to undertake. To complete your quest, solve the clues below and snap a photo of each piece of artwork in question. Once you have your photos, your hunt is complete! Show them to the staff at the front desk who will confirm and provide you with the stamp for your current spot on the Cosmic Road Trip. 

Gearhart Hotel

1. The Grateful Dead play an otherworldly tune, woven by a man as blue as the moon.
2. When visiting the Coast you must see the beach.
For a short walk, that coast is in reach.
But really, any sand meeting water will do
An old photo or original painting work too.
3. While Questing from water all the way until wine
There will be many secrets here and there you will find
And while this old golfer prefers ale to that sip of the vine
If you’re in search of a secret, I’ll toast you in mine.

Grand Lodge

1. You may have been to one, none or even more.
Track down a keepsake from Cosmic Tripster Party four. 
2. Look to the ceiling, it’s easy, don’t dread
There is art where there should be plumbing instead
Some are simple, some frilly
Some are downright silly
Choose your favorite face that lives overhead
3. The influences that led to McMenamins foundation are extensive and diverse
You can head towards the Lodge’s foundation while you read this verse
A familiar bottle and the bubbles that dance and fall
Support the foundation that the Grand Lodge needs to stand tall.

Hotel Oregon

1.The story of this fabled champagne has become McMenamins lore, one cannot deny
That’s why we dance in the moonlight, while bubbles rain down from on high.

2.The saucer flew in, with its lights aglow
It saw my furry friends and swooped down low
This farm is not a runway
But you know what they say
You can be a Hare today, gone tomorrow.
3.This libation migration chose Hotel Oregon as their vacation destination.
