With plenty of bars and cozy armchairs, you may never want to leave Hotel Oregon, but should you venture out, you’ll find wineries, shops and museums in and around charming McMinnville. Explore and be merry!


  • Welcome to a premier wine-growing region! Perhaps best known for its Pinot Noirs, the Willamette Valley, in which McMinnville lies, produces an extraordinary range of grapes and wines at more than 200 wineries

  • In town, join in the Art & Wine Walk every third Saturday of the month to sample the wares from the surrounding vineyards. Enjoy original art from local McMinnville artists while sampling wines from regional and McMinnville wineries.


  • Step right outside the door of Hotel Oregon to stroll Third Street, which features boutiques, shops, bookstores, restaurants and more.

  • From May through October, there is a local Farmers Market every Thursday, where you can peruse vegetables, fruit, wine and more.



  • Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum houses Howard Hughes' immense "Spruce Goose" flying boat, an SR-71 Blackbird spy plane and much more, and many elements are hands-on.

  • Evergreen Wings & Waves Waterpark includes 10 waterslides (ranging from slides for the little ones to looming slides for daredevils), a wave pool and a children's museum dedicated to teaching about the power of water. 



  • Pedal through wine country for a close-up of this beautiful region of Oregon. No designated driver required! (But please, do ride safely.) Select your route from the interactive map.
