Willamette Valley Must – McMinnville, Oregon
This small agricultural community has responded to the Pinot Noir–driven tourist boom, and now you hardly need to leave its limits to experience the valley’s riches. Downtown, on picturesque Third Street, you’ll find 19th-century brick buildings housing restaurants, cafes, art galleries, and boutiques, as well as 15 wine-tasting establishments.
Right off Third lies the 36-room Atticus Hotel, whose moody, atmospheric interiors provide a restful night’s sleep. From $330; atticushotel.com; visitmcminnville.com.
