Introducing The Willamette Valley & Wine Country
The Willamette Valley, a fertile 60-mile-wide agricultural basin, was the holy grail for Oregon Trail pioneers who headed west more than 150 years ago. Today it’s the state’s breadbasket, producing more than 100 kinds of crops – including renowned Pinot Noir grapes. Salem, Oregon’s capital, is about an hour’s drive from Portland at the northern end of the Willamette Valley, and most of the other attractions in the area make easy day trips as well. Toward the south is Eugene, a dynamic college town worth a few days of exploration.

From the undulating roads of San Francisco, travel through Eugene and visit Mt St Helens volcano. Get active rafting, biking and hiking (or shopping) in Bend before hitting up the hippest cafes and restaurants in quirky Seattle.
