3-Day Girls' Getaway in Corvallis

Got a long weekend coming up? You can enjoy the perfect "girls' getaway" in Corvallis, where you and your friends can relax and appreciate our laid-back vibe. Go shopping and enjoy fantastic farm-to-table meals in our restaurants. Tackle outdoor adventures and sip Willamette Valley wine. Bring your best friends and take in everything Corvallis has to offer.

Use this itinerary to help you plan your perfect weekend getaway. Since much of this itinerary revolves around Corvallis' downtown, two hotels in the heart of downtown are the Courtyard by Marriott Corvallis, located on First Street and offering easy access to the Corvallis Museum and the Corvallis Farmers Market; and the Hotel Corvallis, located on Fourth Street and boasting a brand new, unique, retro-industrial look in their comfortable rooms.

Downtown Corvallis offers an extensive selection of locally-owned boutiques and shops, mixed liberally in with art galleries, entertainment venues, and restaurants, making it a lovely spot to get your long weekend started.

ReStyle sources fresh blooms and curates thoughtful collections of style and décor from a large variety of Pacific Northwest makers. Seoul Sisters features eclectic dresses and accessories, and Re*Volve is a resale boutique offering carefully selected, gently-used items to help promote responsible consumerism. 

You'll find the Corvallis' downtown has plenty of charming little coffee shops to stop for a quick refuel, like Futura Coffee Roasters, New Morning Bakery, or Coffee Culture.

After a day of shopping and exploring Corvallis' downtown, pamper yourself at Epic Day Spa, where you and your friends can indulge yourselves with massages, facials, and mani-pedis.

Start your evening with dinner from Sky High Brewing, where you can enjoy panoramic views of downtown Corvallis and the Coast Range from their rooftop bar, or grab a bite from one of several local food carts at Common Fields, which also regularly features live music, comedy nights, board game nights, and more. Cap off the night by taking in a show at the Majestic Theatre or Whiteside Theatre, or catching a Corvallis Knights home game at Goss Stadium on the Oregon State University campus.

Corvallis, located in the heart of the Willamette Valley, is well-known for its scenic rural countryside, filled with local farms. These farms supply the fresh ingredients that go into our fantastic meals, famous pinot noir, and delicious craft beers.

The Corvallis Farmers Market offers meats, veggies, fruits, and more sourced from the "Local Six" - that is, Benton County and the five counties surrounding it, making the Farmers Market the perfect place to pick up a taste of the valley. It's open Wednesdays and Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., along First Street in downtown Corvallis, April through November. You can also find farm stands dotting the countryside all around Corvallis. The Peoria Road Farm Market and Lilliputopia's Farm Stand are two great stops, as is the Midway Farms farm stand, which specializes in gluten-free products.

For a fabulous brunch, visit the Dizzy Hen in nearby Philomath, where you can relax with a mimosa while enjoying vegan hash with curried lentil cake or other local taste treats. After brunch, stretch your legs and give your eyes something to feast on at Fitton Green Natural Area. This 308-acre natural area provides some of the most gorgeous views of the valley (particularly at sunset, if you want to save your walk for a bit later in the day).

Your trip would not be complete without sampling the Willamette Valley’s wines. The Heart of the Willamette Wine Passport can make it easy to connect with the small family-owned wineries and tasting rooms surrounding Benton County. You can schedule a wine tour with Best Oregon Tours, or, for a fun twist, book a Goat Happy Hour at No Regrets Farm.

Finish your culinary tour of the valley with dinner at Gathering Together Farm, a certified organic farm that provides ingredients to many eateries in Corvallis, as well as their own little restaurant. Relax and enjoy a freshly-prepared gourmet meal in their cozy, rustic dining room, situated on an enclosed veranda in front of the small market on their beautiful farm. 

Fuel up at the ever-popular Wise Cracks Café before you get rolling - literally, on your bikes. If you didn't bring a bike with you, there's no need to worry. You can rent bikes at Peak Sports, or, if you're in the mood for something a little more effortless and intend to stay in town, you can rent an electric-assist bike at Corvallis Electric Bicycles.

Corvallis boasts a wide variety of biking experiences, from city rides to gravel trails through forests and wildlife to mountain biking.

Enjoy leisurely rides along tree-lined streets in quiet neighborhoods, or head further out for amazing views along lovely country roads in our more rural areas. Tackle gravel trails at the William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge, where you can also watch for Canadian geese, elk, bald eagles, and other wildlife and birds. If you'd prefer some riding that really gets your heart racing, head to Alsea Falls Recreational Area, where you can challenge yourself with 12 miles of mountain biking trails, including "flow" trails, courtesy Team Dirt, a local organization that maintains the trails.

If you need a snack to tide you over for your excursion, try a stop at Hiatt Farm Bakery for baked goods that will melt in your mouth, or a bigger - and 100% gluten-free! - lunch at Eats & Treats Cafe.

After a day of two-wheeled adventures along our trails, you'll have worked up a thirst. Quench it by stopping in at 4 Spirits Distillery or the Block 15 Tap Room, both located in South Corvallis and offering stunning views of Marys Peak along with great brews and craft spirits. Time your toasts for sunset - watching a sunset over Marys Peak with a tasty, locally-made drink is the best way to end your day and celebrate your friendship.
