Oregon Weekend Getaways
With Portland situated on the Columbia River and coastal communities like Warrenton and Seaside there may be no greater place than Oregon for a romantic weekend getaway. Portland has a genuine small town feel dressed up as a big city. The natural beauty of the city itself (located along the Columbia River) makes it ideal for romantics and it has a really youthful spirit about it as well. There is also Oregon's wine-making region to the east so you can spend a weekend wine-tasting and touring vineyards too at places like Lange Estate Winery and Eyrie Vineyards. Schedule your weekend to coincide with the Portland Rose Festival in May or Hood River Valley Harvest Fest in October. Dedicate a day or your weekend to drive the Historic Columbia River Highway!
Secluded Oregon weekend travel for two just a short drive away!
If you happen to live in Oregon, traveling to a small and secluded
place is easy. Lodging rates in small hidden towns like Gresham,
Baker City, Coos Bay or Burns can be much less expensive. Many of the
smaller towns in Oregon offer great little B&B's or cabin
making a quick weekend escape easy and inexpensive. There are always
quaint little shops to explore as well as great home cooking at
local restaurants. Above all, small towns can offer real quiet and
seclusion for a perfect romantic weekend getaway.

A Oregon Romantic Weekend Getaway right under your nose?
If you live in or near a Oregon major metropolitan area like Portland,
La Grande, Eugene or Ontario, there are many great deals and weekend
getaway opportunities at your own back door. There are world class resorts in
these great cities that offer tremedous savings during the travel off seasons. Many resorts
and spas offer packages designed to entice locals to come and
explore the pampering they offer. Although you aren't going far
from home, the right resort or hotel can make you feel as if you
are another world away.
Oregon Weekend Getaway - Jet Away!
Hop a flight to see Silver Falls or Alberta Street in Downtown Portland or attend Astoria Warrenton Crab & Seafood Festival in April
or Oregon Bounty Harvest Days near Baker City in October. Just because it's a weekend doesn't mean it won't be
memorable. The important thing to remember when considering far
away romantic travel with only a weekend to spare is to find something
specific you especially want to experience while you're there. Consider
checking out some of the great Oregon events like Hood River Valley Harvest Fest in October or Pendleton Round-Up in February.
A weekend is definitely not enough time to explore all of Oregon,
but what could be more romantic than hopping a short flight to have
a romantic dinner and see a show on Saturday in Portland, and then
enjoy brunch Sunday morning and heading home. Maybe a wonderful
Salem resort offers a great weekend spa package for two, giving
you just enough time to relax, unwind and connect with one another.
The best thing about weekend getaways is they help give us great
ideas for future travel destinations. Imagine when you're coworkers
ask you "So what did you do this weekend?" you can say
"Well, on Saturday I had lunch... in Portland."
