McMinnville Oregon is located in the gorgeous Willamette Valley just 30 miles southwest from Portland. This area is rich in agriculture with over 200 vineyards and 90 wineries. The tasting rooms are open to visitors so just come and visit for the wine tasting alone. However, there are other things to enjoy in McMinnville Oregon. Besides the wine and vineyards, McMinnville Oregon is home to the Evergreen Aviation Museum. On display at the museum are over 60 historic aircraft and other exhibits. It is also where the famous Spruce Goose is located. This was the largest wooden aircraft that has ever been built. It was built by the eccentric Howard Hughes in the 1940s. Anyone who is a fan of aircraft, old or new, would enjoy a visit to this museum. McMinnville Oregon also boasts having a downtown historic district. This includes 100 commercial buildings all being of historical or architectural interest. There have been changes made in McMinnville Oregon thanks to the McMinnville Downtown Association that made downtown McMinnville a very quaint and pretty place to shop, eat and go to live theater. There is even a self-guided historic building walking tour that can be taken. Not too far from McMinnville Oregon, is the Spirit Mountain Casino in Grand Ronde, for those who love to play the slots. It is only 27 miles away. McMinnville Oregon is a charming, beautiful and safe city to visit, and the tourist won't go away disappointed.
