The cities of Newberg and McMinnville are located along highway 99W, about thirty minutes from both Portland and Salem.
Nestled in the Willamette Valley, the towns enjoy the reputation of being the 'Napa Valley of Oregon'. With many wineries around the Valley, wine tours and wine tasting are the area's main attraction.
Situated between the Cascades and the Pacific Ocean, visitors to the area can enjoy a day at the beach driving less than an hour to the west, and skiing at Mount Hood and other ski areas an hour drive to the east.
McMinnville is home to the HK-1 Flying Boat, also known as the 'Spruce Goose', built in the forties by Howard Hughes. Flown only once, the largest wood-framed aircraft ever built, it's now resting in the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville.
All motels and hotels in Newberg are located on highway 99W within a mile of the city center. Hotels in McMinnville are located mostly on highway 18 within two miles of downtown and the McMinnville Municipal Airport.
