This meandering three day/two night tour through central Oregon balances planned activities with free time, so you can create your own perfect getaway. Our first day centers on McMinneville with a farm to table lunch experience, followed by a tasting of some of Yamhill County’s famed pinot noirs and other wines. Then you’ll have some free time to either visit the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum (admission not included) or break free to explore downtown for shopping or another tasting. Later in Lincoln City we check into the beachfront Looking Glass Inn. There are several restaurants nearby and all the beach you could want for an evening that is yours to do as you please.
Wednesday we start with breakfast at the hotel before driving to Newport for the better part of the day. We’ll start with a stop at the Devil’s Punchbowl Park for some geological interest and time on the beach. A visit to Newport’s Oregon Coast Aquarium is included and then time to explore the waterfront. You’ll be back in Lincoln City for supper and sunset over the Pacific.
Thursday after breakfast we begin our trip up the scenic coastline stopping along the way to take in the stunning scenery, visit Blue Heron French Cheese Company, and of course, Tillamook Cheese Factory.
