Summer Staycation Outdoor Activities in Newberg, Oregon

As we plan to enjoy the Summer’s weather and distance ourselves outside, we’ve got a list of fun things to do in Newberg, that allow you to stick close to home and socially distance at businesses who are practicing safe and healthy standards, as required by regulatory authorities. It’s great then that Newberg has a whole range of the best things to see and do in Oregon — activities and special offers — ready to make your Willamette Vally visit memorable.

Downtown Newberg’s Ruddick/Wood is open for seating, with outdoor tavern seating options. What better way to kick off Summer, than one of their local-focus breakfasts? Doors open at 9:00 AM. Call ahead at 503-487-6133 to ensure seating availability.

Chehalem Glenn Golf Course

Newberg’s Chehalem Glenn Golf Course is open for socially distanced golf. They also have a driving range if you just want to smash some balls for a while. Or, check out Herbert Hoover Park’s disc golf course. You can purchase the discs across the street at the mini-mart.

One of the best things to see in Oregon is the Willamette River Water Trail. You can explore it in your kayak or paddleboard, or just take a walk out on the dock. Put in at Rogers Landing in Newberg, which is the perfect place to start your exploration.
