Best Things to Do Willamette Valley

Discover this scenic, 150-mile long valley in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S.

Located less than an hour from Portland, Oregon, the Willamette Valley beckons with its lush, pastoral beauty. This 150-mile expanse, stretching south to Eugene, nestles between two mountain ranges: the low, thickly wooded Coast Range that stands to the west and the lofty peaks of the Cascade Range to the east. The protective cradle formed by these mountain ranges provides the distinctive temperate climate and rich soil that defines the Willamette Valley, where vineyards thrive and hundreds of wineries make a living. From boutique producers to world-renowned Pinot Noir growers, the Willamette Valley is a slice of heaven for anyone with a thirst for the grape and lush scenery.
