Tualatin Valley is a beautiful area with farms, forests and trails to delight every outdoor enthusiast. But if the cold, rainy weather gets you down, there’s still plenty of fun to be had indoors. Don’t let rain ruin your visit.
Go ice skating
Maybe you aren’t afraid of the cold and want to enjoy a nice winter activity! Indoor ice skating is the perfect way to embrace winter, show off your favorite winter coat and maybe fantasize about becoming an Olympian. Head to the Winterhawks Skating Center in Beaverton or the Sherwood Ice Arena. Both facilities offer open public skating times for people of all skill levels.
Play a game
If you like games and puzzles, you’ve got serious options in Tualatin Valley. Senet Game Bar in downtown Tigard is the perfect spot to eat and drink while you try out a new board game. Senet has a rotating tap list featuring Oregon beers and everything from mac and cheese to hummus plates. For bonus fun, head downstairs to the game store, Versus, and pick up a game to play at home.
If board games bore you, try an escape room. Spend an hour working through riddles and physical puzzles to solve a themed challenge at one of our many escape rooms.
If golfing is your thing but wet greens aren’t, head to Topgolf and hit balls in comfort. Topgolf is a lot like bowling, with different game options and everything you’ll need provided. Order some tasty food and drinks and enjoy the climate controlled bays any time of year.
Langer’s is like being outside in almost every way except that it’s not. The logging themed fun zone is inspired by the Langer family history of clearing forest land in Sherwood and six generations of farming. You can climb a nearly 50-foot rock wall, traverse a 56-foot high ropes course with 21 different challenges and sit around an 8-foot campfire right in the middle of everything. There’s also a bowling alley, laser tag, arcade, soft play area for kids and lots of food and drink options.
So if you’re visiting Oregon but don’t love the weather, you can still take advantage of all the fun and adventure we have to offer here.
