Where to Sip, Shop, Dine & Stay in Downtown Newberg
Like many of you, we have spent months scrolling through spellbinding photos of highly sought-after travel destinations here in Willamette Valley wine country. We too have spent hours liking, saving, sending direct messages, or perhaps emailing links to our friends and family, daydreaming about the next time we can get out and treat ourselves to a day shopping, exploring, and tasting our way through Newberg.
Lucky you, we saved a few of our “pinterest worthy pins” and created the kind of day you will thoroughly enjoy. Surely, enough to be penciling in your next visit before you even return home.
