Wine + Family

Welcome to the Valley for all.

Visit a Willamette Valley vintner and you’ll feel at home from the get-go. The whole family is welcome almost anytime (many winemakers live on-site and will see your car kicking up gravel on the way in) to sit on cozy tasting room couches and soak up sweeping views along with winemaker’s tales. Yes, you may be put to work stomping grapes or shining a few glasses – and you will definitely leave with the resident dog’s hair all over your pants - but hey, you’re family now. 

 

Oregon’s Willamette Valley makes a great adventure destination. Try these must-see non-winery stops for a family adventure-cation:

Eugene:
Sleep in a Giant -  Take to the tree-tops with a guided expedition into the forest canopy. Choose from day-hike or overnight excursions into 250-300-foot tall Douglas firs.

 

Mt. Hood Territory:
Ride in a Racer - Find out what it’s like behind the wheel of an Indy car at an experiential motorsports expo at The World of Speed.

 

Corvallis:
Live with the Lambs - Reconnect with the past (and each other) during an overnight farm stay you won't forget. Taste just-picked veggies, care for farm animals, play in the creek at Leaping Lamb Farm Stay.

 

Albany:

Albany’s Historic Carousel - Albany’s talented community has volunteered over 152,000 recorded hours to create something magical! Join them as they hand carve and paint their way into carousel history, as well as into the hearts and imagination of all that visit the studio. albanycarousel.com

 

Salem:

Silver Falls State Park - Oregon’s largest State Park (9,000 acres) and home to one of America’s most impressive waterfall day-hikes: The Trail of Ten Falls. Also offers year-round overnight camping in cabins, yurts and tents, wildlife viewing, picnicking and swimming. Also, home to the state’s first Natural Play Area for kids.

 

Yamhill Valley:
Slide down a 747 - Rush through a three-story waterslide that starts on the rooftop in a real Boeing 747 jumbo-jet and twists its way to a splash finish at the bottom at Wings & Waves Waterpark and brush on your aviation history at the Evergreen Air & Space Museum in McMinnville.
