Where you’ll be

Forest Grove, Oregon, United States

Jump on one of our bicycles to enjoy the popular paved nature trail that gently winds through a secluded bird sanctuary, over Gales creek, and into the Historic Painter’s Woods and other old town districts of Forest Grove. Or, just take a short stroll down Main Street, past giant sequoias, to enjoy dessert and coffee in one of our many superb local eateries; take in some community theater; or just peruse local art gallery or antique shops in downtown Forest Grove.

In summer, enjoy local fresh produce and treats every Wednesday at the local Farmer’s Market. In fall, attend the Oregon Air Show in nearby Hillsboro Airport. Year-round, attend one of many functions at Pacific University -- all within mere blocks of the home.

Hollywood buffs are delighted that Forest Grove’s unique small-town charm has been discovered and television episodes have been filmed in locations just minutes away.

For fishermen or water sport enthusiasts, picturesque Hagg Lake awaits, and the allure of the 21-mile Vernonia trail entices more serious bikers – both a mere 15 minutes away. For wine-tasting enthusiasts, we are located on the virtual edge of a wine-lovers’ dream – a plethora of picturesque wineries within minutes.

Why is Forest Grove a great home base for your visit to Oregon? All its local charms considered, Forest Grove an excellent launching pad for a larger-scaled experience. Because of its central position in Oregon’s Northwestern corner, the state’s most splendid attractions are within one to two hours’ drive or less in any direction. We are twenty-five miles from Downtown Portland; sixty miles from the Oregon Coast; seventy miles from Mount Hood; seventy miles from Multnomah Falls and the breathtaking Columbia Gorge; seventy miles from Oregon State University, home of the Beavers. And in between those locations? Oregon, Oregon, Oregon. Everything that makes our state one of the most beautiful places on the earth. Hiking, fishing, antiquing, breweries, wineries, and restaurants abound in this corner of the world.
