  • Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum
    Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum preserves one of mankind's greatest achievements: harnessing the power of flight. Across its open hangars sprawl aircraft of every era?from replicas of the earliest Wright Flyers to an SR-71 Blackbird capable of speeds greater than 2,000 miles per hour. There's also an indoor water park, just like the one the Wright Brothers dreamed of installing in their surf shop some day. Size: massive 120,000 square feet, with hangars filled with civilian and military planes; NASA space craft; a large-format digital 3D theater; and the 70,000 square foot indoor Wings & Wings Waterpark Eye Catcher: a real Boeing 747 aircraft that sits on the Waterpark's roof, and even has a slide built into its structure Crown Jewel: The Spruce Goose. Famously designed by Howard Hughes, this WWII-era plane was built out of wood due to wartime restrictions on metals. It flew only once. Don't Miss: an unflown capsule from the Mercury space program Hidden Gem: the firearms collection, where 18 cases break from aviation to showcase weaponry from every era of the American military Hands-On Activities: In addition to slides and leisure pools, the Waterpark houses more than 20 interactive educational exhibits focused on the power of water. Pro Tip: Tell the Museum staff how long you want to spend in the Museum; they'll help you plan an itinerary that best fits your schedule. Special Program: guided tours by volunteer docents, many of whom are veteran pilots

  • Sip! McMinnville Wine & Food Classic
    Originally established and overseen by a committee of parents, Sip! McMinnville Wine & Food Classic began in 1994 as a small community fundraiser for St. James Catholic School. Today, the annual festival draws nearly 10,000 people to the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, requiring more than 300 volunteers to assemble regional winemakers, culinary masters, and artists. Vintners disclose trade tips as they peddle their ambrosial libations, all of which are ultimately ranked by a panel of professional judges into bronze, silver, gold, and best-of-show tiers. Guests can take wine-tasting classes, which teach sippers how distinguish fruity undertones from a banana hiding in their glass, or glean cooking tips from kitchen demonstrations and food booths. Throughout the weekend-long gathering, artists display their opuses in the form of tangible wares or live music.

  • McMinnville Downtown Wineries Association
    Renowned for its artisan wines and pinot noir varietals, Willamette Valley Vineyards whips taste buds into flavorful frenzies with elegant quaffs that highlight the pure grapes of the region. Like the cycles of the moon and broken sundials, reserve tastings rotate monthly, featuring a different lineup of five distinct libations. Tasters can count on three Single Vineyard Designate pinot noirs in the sippable quintet, one of which is the 2008 Estate pinot noir. Blossoming sommeliers step up to their glasses and test their scent-sensors under the guidance of Willamette Valley's professional drink detectives, aiding their efforts to detect the notes of cherry, dark chocolate, and spice laced throughout their beverage. Following their consumption and discussion of their glasses, participants receive two "It's Willamette, Dammit" t-shirts, and are welcome to keep their Riedel logo stemware, ideal for future tastings or trapping fancy tarantulas.

  • Dangerous Baits
    To Justin Doane, there are few things better than being out on the water and breathing in the coastal air. Having spent his youth shuttling between Oregon and Alaska on fishing trips with his father, he now has an in-depth understanding of local ecologies and where the best places are to seek steelhead and chinook, depending on the season. Today, he leads daylong trips out onto the Nestucca, Trask, Wilson, Nehalem, and Salmon Rivers, to name a few, and provides all the equipment necessary for amateur anglers to return home with impressive catches.
