Welcome to Corvallis! By Mary Pat Parker Located in the heart of the Willamette Valley, Corvallis, Oregon offers year-round culinary, cultural and outdoor adventures, making it the perfect place for your next getaway. Surrounded by fertile countryside dotted with locally owned, nationally known wineries, plenty of biking trails in and around town, home to creative chefs with a decidedly local bent and amazing brew masters all right here for your enjoyment, we invite you to visit Corvallis - you don’t want to miss it. 2013 has been designated the Year of Culture and we’re planning it up big. We have some significant anniversaries in town this year, with The Arts Center turning 50, the Majestic Theatre turning 100 and the 25th anniversary of the da Vinci Days Festival.

w w w. v i s i t c o r v a l l i s . c o m

Make sure to visit our website for a complete list of exciting events held at these and other locales throughout the year. Home to Oregon State University primarily known for its’ research, the 400 acre main campus in Corvallis includes an Historic District and is among 41 Best Buy Schools in the 2013 edition of “The Fiske Guide to Colleges.” Corvallis placed fifth both in the list of best college towns and as an overall college destination, based on 227 college metropolitan areas assessed by the American Institute for Economic Research. We think the presence of the University contributes to the City’s happening vibe - a place fueled by curiosity and innovation. With a vibrant downtown and a beautiful waterfront, we invite you to come for a visit and stay for a while!

From the Mayor On behalf of Corvallis’ nearly 60,000 residents, we are so pleased that you have chosen to visit our community, whether for business, pleasure, or both.

Although Corvallis has earned national recognition for a number of its attributes, we are particularly proud of its recent recognition as the top city in the country in innovation. Scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Santa Fe Institute in New Mexico, writing for the journal PloS ONE, did the math and found that Corvallis led the nation in patented inventions as well as economic output, personal income and preventing violent crime.

5

You'll also find that Corvallis is an easy place to navigate. The downtown and University neighborhoods are highly walkable, and the city has been named one of the nation’s most bicycle-friendly. I encourage you to explore the many unique, locally-owned shops, restaurants, art galleries and other attractions as part of your visit. Stroll our lovely Riverfront, which features a lively Farmers' Market on most Saturday and Wednesday mornings and a central fountain perfect for peoplewatching and cooling off on a warm summer day. Just blocks from downtown, you’ll find Oregon State University with its historic campus and a host of activities year-round. Whether your preference is Pac 12 athletics, notable lectures, music or theatre performances, or a visit to the

OSU Beaver Store for a keepsake from your visit, OSU can meet your needs. Corvallis’ location in the heart of the Willamette Valley also means you are just minutes away from a multitude of other recreation opportunities. Pack a picnic and visit the picturesque wineries located throughout the region. You’ll find friendly people, award-winning wines and spectacular scenery. Or, try a day hike through the McDonald Forest, Finley National Wildlife Refuge or other beautiful settings just outside the city limits. The city also hosts a variety of festivals, fairs and other special events throughout the year. Be sure to stop in at the Corvallis Visitor Center, 553 NW Harrison Blvd, and chat with an expert on things to see and do in Corvallis.

As you get to know this highly livable college town, perhaps you’ll find yourself wondering about Corvallis as a place to live or do business. The influence of a major research university, thriving sectors of high tech, agribusiness, biosciences, and green energy, and an educated workforce result in a solid local economy. In fact, Forbes magazine ranks Corvallis among its top 20 Best Small Places for Business and Careers. Our local Chamber of Commerce or staff at the City of Corvallis can provide additional information about doing business here. As your stay with us ends, I hope you’ll agree that Corvallis is a very special place. Thanks for your visit; please come again soon! Warmly, Julie Manning, Mayor

HEERS! HEERS! By Mary Pat Parker & Marci Sischo WINERIES Home to many locally owned and nationally known wineries, the Heart of Willamette Wineries invite you to come sip and savor their flavors. These boutique vineyards enjoy some of the most favorable grape-growing conditions in the Willamette Valley and the winemakers will gladly tell you their stories. This is part of what makes wine tasting here so much fun. Mostly family owned, these stewards place high value in producing quality pinots and other varietals, while being equally committed to sustainable practices. The tasting rooms are set in beautiful countryside with plenty of opportunities to picnic, relax and explore. BREWERIES Three different award-winning breweries make their homes in Corvallis. Block 15 pairs their amazing beers, made with organic base malt, imported specialty malts and Northwest hops, with excellent, locally-sourced food, and makes both following strict sustainability practices. Flat Tail Brewery took home a first place People’s Choice Award in the 2011 KLCC Microbrewfest in nearby Eugene, and continues to make quality craft beers. Two Towns Ciderhouse specializes in crisp, fantastic ciders made from locally-produced apples, honey and other special ingredients. Continued on page 20 w w w. v i s i t c o r v a l l i s . c o m

Benton County may be best known for its wine and microbrews, but our distilleries are making news, too. We’re home to Four Spirits Distillery, known for its small-batch vodkas and brand new bourbon whiskey, and Vivacity Spirits, which specializes in a super-smooth vodka made from local organic corn.

2013 he Year of Culture

“The theatre, the theatre, what’s happened to the theatre?” Phil Davis (Danny Kaye), “White Christmas”

What’s happened to the Majestic Theatre is that it is celebrating its’ 100th anniversary in 2013! Originally opening as a vaudeville house in 1913, today it serves Corvallis as a center of live arts, theater and music, a creative workspace for community artists of all disciplines, an education center and more. There are many events planned at this historic venue and at other significant cultural locations throughout the year. Stop by VisitCorvallis.com/CorvallisCulture for up-to-date celebrations. Another historic gem in Corvallis is the Whiteside Theatre. Now in its’ 91st year, this grand old theater was one of Oregon’s original movie palaces. Time, two fires and a

Speaking of significant anniversaries, the wonderful Benton County Historical Museum is turning 60 this year. Located in nearby Philomath, Oregon, it operates today as a museum, research library and art gallery, hosting a diverse range of art and historical exhibitions. The Arts Center in Corvallis is also participating in the Year of Culture 2013. Since January of 1963, The Arts Center has been central to the Corvallis community, serving as a gallery and arts education center, and known for its creative outreach program. long period of closure has taken its toll on this gorgeous theater. The community is working hard to restore it to its former glory.

F rom Mild to Wild Corvallis has an outdoor experience waiting for you

Whether you are a birding or biking enthusiast, you can find it all in and around Corvallis. Bird lovers will appreciate the care that the William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge has taken to provide a winter habitat for migrating Dusky Canada geese. With over 5000 acres of protected land, visitors can view these nomadic fowl in the winter months and explore other native species that call the refuge home yearround. Other birding hot spots in or near Corvallis include the

w w w. v i s i t c o r v a l l i s . c o m

E.E. Wilson Wildlife Area, Chip Ross and Avery Parks, Mardi’s Meadow, the Jackson-Frazier Wetland and Beazell Memorial Forest. The Corvallis Audubon Society offers frequent birding field trips on foot and on bike.

Speaking of bikes, did you know that Corvallis has over 60 miles of biking and hiking trails throughout town and into surrounding countryside? Not only does the City of Corvallis maintain a network of paved paths, Corvallis and Benton County parks

provide a variety of paved and unpaved trails that provide easy access to beautiful natural areas. Ask for a trail suggestion at one of the many bike shops or at the Corvallis Visitor Center. Your off-road adventure begins at Bald Hill Natural Area where you can set out on a variety of adventures. Three separate parking lots lead to paved trails branching along the base of the hill and several miles of dirt and gravel trails that circle and climb to the summit of the hill, as well as connect to

25 the Fitton Green Natural Area. You’re liable to see deer, coyote and many species of birds. Is it “city riding” you prefer? There are twenty miles of paved multi-use paths in town and there are many roads in the area that offer wide shoulders and light traffic. Depending on the route you choose you can experience rolling hills, local agriculture or - if you’re up to it - go for a challenge up Sulpher Springs Road or the impressive climb to Marys Peak. Marys Peak is the highest point in the Coastal Range at an elevation of 4,097 feet, and on a clear day you can see all the way to the Cascades or the ocean. If you’d rather explore on two feet instead of two wheels, we’re pleased to tell you

there’s more than fifty great hikes nearby. You can choose a walk through town and tour two distinct historic districts, alley art and stroll along the riverfront, or you can explore the great outdoors at nearby Peavy Arboretum, the gateway to the McDonald Research Forest. Make sure to visit the astonishing Starker Forest only minutes from town, too. Additional hiking information is available at our Visitor Center. There are plenty of opportunities for other outdoor adventures as well. Make sure to check the resource section in the back of this guide for information on where to access the river for boating, swimming, fishing or for nearby golf courses, gardens, covered bridges and more.

I’m Genna Reeves-DeArmond, doctoral candidate from OSU. I’m traveling all over the country to conduct my Ph.D research, and I use the Eugene Airport. I’m studying how visitors to Titanic museums use dress to learn about and personally relate to the history of 100 years ago. One of the ways people connect with Titanic’s history is through the clothes worn by passengers on the ship, including their social class, life story and experiences aboard the ship. Traveling then took so much planning and now it’s so easy! I use the Eugene Airport – It fits my style.
