COVID-19 note: Many restaurants, wineries and attractions now require reservations. Check individual websites before visiting to learn about new protocols. Masks are required inside and in outdoor areas where physical distancing is not possible.
With one of the few states in the U.S. with no sales tax on anything, shop to your heart’s desire. Stock up on beauty products, buy that bag you’ve been coveting online, splurge on a new pair of shoes or earrings. Your choices are only limited by the limits on your credit card.
Splurge at a Spa
Treat yourself and your friends to a relaxing afternoon at Ruby’s Spa at McMenamin’s Grand Lodge. Recharge with a massage and a rejuvenating dip in the soaking pool.

Another spot noted for its spectacular views is Árdíri Winery & Vineyards. Gather around the cozy indoor fireplace or outdoor fire pit and enjoy a flight crafted from Árdíri’s vineyards in Napa and the Willamette Valley.
Drink & Dine
Enjoy a glass of wine (or beer or cocktail) and a delicious dinner at Wine & Growl. From the simple to the sublime, Wine & Growl’s menu features gourmet comfort foods.
In Old Town Sherwood, 503 Uncorked features a modest menu with salads, flatbreads, platters to share and desserts, along with a selection of top-notch wines from the Pacific Northwest.
