Fall may be short on daylight, but it can be long on savings! Great hotel room discounts and packages and colorful, out-the-windshield views this time of year make it a good time for a fall-cation.
Many Oregonians cite fall as their favorite season, and it’s easy to understand why. The crisp autumn temperatures and views of changing foliage over the sparkling Willamette River are sublime. You’re just as likely to find a gorgeous warm day at the beach as you are an early-season snowstorm in the Cascades. There’s plenty to see and do this time of year. November can be a great time for wine touring in the Willamette Valley, depending on health and safety protocols. With more than 300 tasting rooms throughout the valley, most of them open through the Thanksgiving weekend for curbside pickup, it’s a perfect time to stock up on your party wines and dinner wines for the holiday season. In town, the local Japanese Garden, Chinese Garden, and the infamous International Rose Garden become even more breathtaking than in summer. For explorers, more than 12,000 acres of public parkland within the city of Portland await walkers, runners and bicyclists.
From parks and outdoor adventure, to shopping, museums, and the food scene that has become part of the city’s fabric, Portland is the cultural center of the state. As we adjust to health and safety changes in the wake of COVID-19, hours and protocols may flex for the more than 75 breweries in city limits, hundreds of restaurants and shops. This is a great time for tax-free holiday shopping, even if it means curbside pickup. Check for the latest restrictions here.
