As we plan to enjoy the Summer’s weather and distance ourselves outside, we’ve got suggestions for you, 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 activities and special offers, ready to make your 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. https://ruddickwood.com
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. https://www.chehalemglenn.com. Or, check out Herbert Hoover Park’s disc golf course. You can purchase the discs across the street at the mini-mart.
Explore the Willamette River Water Trail in your kayak or paddleboard. Put in at Rogers Landing in Newberg, which is just about the perfect place to start your exploration.
Another downtown Newberg hotspot is Storrs Smokehouse, perfect for a lunch stop, along your itinerary. Check out the smoked brisket! One look at the pictures on their website and your resistance is futile. https://www.storrssmokehouse.com.
Pick up your takeout and head out Highway 240 to Ewing Young Distillery, to enjoy an abundance of activities from which you can choose. Savor a flight of six spirits while you partake in cornhole or darts at the distillery. Or, schedule a tour to learn about the history of Ewing Young and his impact on Newberg’s development, as well as seeing the Farm’s Kentucky-Derby winning stallions.
