The experience starts here.
When visiting Newport, you'll experience premium lodging at its finest at our magnificent Oceanfront Resort. Hallmark Resort-Newport overlooks the expansive Pacific Ocean with Yaquina Head Lighthouse to the North, and Yaquina Bay Lighthouse and Jetty to the South. Stunning sunrises and sunsets, the coming and going of the fishing fleet, and the occasional whale sighting, are all within view. Our accommodations are all oceanfront, non-smoking, and many come with 2-person in-room spas and fireplaces. We also offer a heated, indoor salt water pool, spa, sauna, and fitness room.
Driving through the Columbia River Gorge it hits you that over the course of thousands of years, the landscape was carved from the earth creating the majestic beauty.
Then you realize you need to keep your eyes on the road.
The gorge’s unending beauty is only matched by the rich history and lessons it can teach people willing to learn. Lucky for us, there is the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Museum in The Dalles.
Al and Susan Toepfer spent a good amount of time transforming a barn on 10 acres of rural ranch land southeast of Bend into a nano brewery. In 2013, with Brewmaster Al Toepfer, and many more family members, they took a big step and decided to start bottling beer and open up a pub right in The Old Mill District.
Rat Hole will be brewing the standard,Reds, Porters, Browns, IPA’s, Pilsners, in addition to some specialty/seasonal brews like Pumpkin Spice Ale, Summer Lemon Wheat, Saison, and a Blueberry Ale. Cheers!
Normally the high-pitched, blood curdling screams of little girls would lead to the scrambling of parents in search of their children.
On a hot Saturday afternoon, the primal sounds had the exact opposite reaction, smiles all around.
“Whenever you get more than three girls on this ride, better plug your ears,” said the “Frog Hopper” ride attendant. “They love it.”
More than just screaming daughters love Enchanted Forest.
To prove it, all you need to do is walk around the 20-acre site on a summer day to see all the smiles.

Everyone has done it. Passed many roadside attractions doing 65 miles per hour not even noticing the enchanting place to stop and explore.
Stastny Gardens and Art Gallery is one of these roadside gems. Basically it’s three attractions in one, a wonderful garden with many different types of trees, shrubs and flowers, an art gallery with featured local artists and a showcase of unique hand-carved stone pots for plants, fountains and firepots.
Whether it’s the numerous outlet malls, or visiting historic downtowns, there are many shopping opportunities scattered about the coast, from North to South.
But few shopping malls have the attraction of the Seaside Carousel Mall – a full-sized indoor working carousel. On the Oregon Coast, being indoors means you can enjoy a ride on a horse, sea horse or any number of other animals depicted on the spinning wonder.
The fact of the matter is there just aren’t that many woolen mills – or any other type of textile mills – left in the United States.
With cheaper labor abroad, more and more companies send the work off-shore, where they can hire several workers, to one American worker.
However, there are still a few places left in the U.S. where you can see production of wool being woven into blankets, such as Pendleton Woolen Mills.
Built in dramatic Cascadian style architecture, the stunning Discovery Museum has been a Portland icon since 1971. Visitors can take a wet-free raft ride, see the forest from a bird’s-eye-view, learn about different people who work in the forest, and “travel” to Russia, China, South Africa and Brazil to discover how those regions are utilizing their forests and the challenges they face.
