Lodging | Dining | Shopping | Resources
We are so pleased that you have chosen to visit our community, whether for business, pleasure or both. Corvallis is a delightful city. You’ll 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 Farmer’s market on most Saturday and Wednesday mornings and a central fountain perfect for people watching 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 Pac12 athletics, notable lectures, music or theater 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 recreational opportunities. The city also hosts
a variety of festivals, fairs and special events throughout the year. Be sure and stop in at the Corvallis Visitor Center, 420 NW 2nd Street and chat with an expert on things to see and do in Corvallis. As you get to know this highly livable college town, perhaps youâ€™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 youâ€™ll agree that Corvallis is a very special place. Thank you for your visit - please come again soon!

Experience the ambiance of Corvallis’ vibrant, walkable downtown along the Willamette River and Riverfront Park. In outstanding historic structures, restaurants and brew pubs offer locally-grown cuisine, and unique shops. Early enterprises along 2nd Street outfitted Oregon and California gold miners. For a step back in time, visit the 1856 Avery Building, 400 SW 2nd Street, Corvallis’ oldest hardware and implements store. In 1846, William Dixon filed a claim north of Joseph Avery’s claim. These adjoining founders’ claims met where today’s Benton County Courthouse reigns over downtown.

The OSU Campus Historic District, Oregon’s only collegiate district, celebrates more than 180 acres, 83 buildings, quads, and open space. Olmsted’s early campus plan demonstrates the dynamic role of the campus in the greater cultural landscape. When the college moved from downtown in the 1890s, the North College Hill historic neighborhood grew on a gentle slope. Nearby, the pedestrian-friendly College Hill West Historic District highlights nearly 400 structures and a welcoming tree canopy. The Atomic Ranch walking tour doesn’t glow in the dark, but features ground-hugging ranch homes built at the dawn of the Atomic Age. And more! On summer Saturday’s the Historic Trolley tour rolls and rings its bell through appealing historic neighborhoods like North and South Central Park, Franklin Square, and Rayburn Addition. Spend a jolly hour – or two – on the Trolley. For an adventurous blend of old and new, grab your GPS-enabled device and take the Historic Benton County Geocaching Challenge. This program explores Corvallis’ and Benton County’s byways and stories and features 27 sites – some physical caches and others virtual sites in neighborhoods, and along scenic country roads.

The Great If you love the great outdoors, you’re going to fall head over heels for Corvallis. Corvallis offers over 60 miles of hiking and biking trails, both around town and throughout beautiful Benton County. 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 breath-taking natural areas. Ask for a trail suggestion at one of the many bike shops or at the Visitor Center. Your off-road experience begins at Bald Hill Natural Area where you can set off on a variety of adventures. Three separate parking lots lead to paved trails that branch out to single-track paths connecting to Fitton Green, Oak Creek and Cardwell Hill County Parks. You’re likely to see deer, coyotes and many species of birds.
Is it city riding you prefer? There are 20 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 try 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 that there are more than fifty great hikes nearby. You can choose a walk through town where you can tour our two historic districts, the alley art walk, and stroll along the riverfront, or you can explore nearby Peavy Arboretum, the gateway to the McDonald Research Forest.

Arts & Culture There’s a lot to enjoy in Corvallis: the food, the beer, the wine, and the great outdoors, just for starters. We’re also a university town, and Oregon State brings a lot to the table when it comes to providing fun things to do and see. But a big part of the town’s appeal lies in our active and vibrant arts and culture community. Corvallis has an embarrassment of riches in the arts, including art shows, theater, music, performance arts, and more. One great example is the Corvallis Mural Project, which is splashing colorful murals all across Corvallis. Jennifer Moreland, inspired by the gorgeous murals she found all over Los Angeles, launched the Corvallis Mural Project in 2016. Thanks to Moreland’s efforts, 20 stunning murals now dot downtown Corvallis, with more on the way.
We also have many lovely - and historic! venues at which you can enjoy the arts. Downtown we have the Majestic Theater, originally built as an 800-seat grand movie palace and vaudeville hall in 1913. Today it serves as a creative laboratory, meeting place and performance venue for a vibrant community of artists and a diverse audience. Another is the Whiteside Theatre, with its newly restored marquee, which showcases the commitment of the Whiteside Theater Foundation to refurbishing this 91-year-old historical monument. The Arts Center, another historic building that began life as a church in the late 1800s, is dedicated to integrating the arts into community life. It offers dynamic collaboration, innovative outreach programs, diverse exhibitions and cultural events, and creative educational
opportunities. The Darkside Theater is the only independent, locally-owned movie theater in Corvallis and features art and independent films, along with hosting old classics and great, movie-themed events. The Corvallis community is enriched with performances as Oregon State University students’ share their talents through the Chamber Choir, the symphony, chamber ensembles, jazz ensembles, solo recitals, the OSU Marching Band, and more. Performances are listed on the University’s web calendar and on the quarterly community events calendar. There are many other venues to enjoy the Corvallis nightlife scene, from bluegrass to blues, folk to classical. Check the Visit Corvallis website to see live music and dance listings.

If you think agritourism might be boring or dirty or not worth the time, think again. It puts a face to local farming and is a unique way to experience Benton County’s working landscapes. Here are a sampling of places you can visit:
OSU’s Pilot Brewery is a result of its thriving fermentation science program. Stop in to see what students majoring in fermentation science are learning about beer making. Research is conducted at OSU that benefits the micro brewing industry.
Davis Family Farms, a family owned farm located in Corvallis specializes in unique hanging baskets, farm grown strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers and other fruits and vegetables.
Midway Farm, just outside of Corvallis, sells organic fruits, vegetables, honey, jams, jellies and organic flowers for special events. The farm also offers farm camps in spring and summer.
Garland Nursery is a fourth generation familyowned business on the outskirts of Corvallis. For 80 years the nursery has provided customers with high quality plants and garden supplies.
Old Raw Blue produces unique varietal honeys with names like Meadow Foam and Poison Oak. Their tasting room, just off Hwy 34 outside of Philomath (noted by its large garage door painted with bees and visible from the road), is open for special events and by appointment.
Gathering Together Farm, on the outskirts of Philomath, is a large organic farm growing a wide array of organic produce sold at farmers markets around the state, has a thriving CSA program, operates a store, and has a seasonal restaurant on-site. Greengable Garden, a 28-acre farm in Philomath, grows daffodils, tulips, irises, peonies, lilies, dahlias and sunflowers in season, mostly for wholesale, but also for its flower shop on-site that is open to the public. Honey Tree Apriaries is a small honey bee farm located in Alpine. They raise bees for pollination and their own unique honey sold at the Corvallis Farmers Market and from their home location. Leaping Lamb Farm Stay is a small family farm located in Alsea offering overnight stays in a private farm cottage and farm house. Enjoy fresh food, fresh air and meet the sheep, donkey, goats, chickens, and more.
We are also fortunate to have Oregon State University right here in Corvallis. The university has been recognized as a world-class center in agriculture and forestry.

Benton County is the perfect place for agritourism with its rich Willamette Valley soils and forested Coast Range. Drive by Christmas tree farms and hazelnut orchards, fields of sheep and cattle, forests of Douglas fir, and large grass seed farms. Stop at farmsteads offering u-pick strawberries or blueberries, seasonal farm stands with local honey, herb and flower garden nurseries, even overnight lodging.
Shonnard’s Nursery, Florist, and Landscape, between Corvallis and Philomath, has been providing plants, gardening supplies and helpful advice for over 25 years. Family-owned and operated, the nursery has been active in establishing the Philomath Community Garden. Siuslaw Brewing located six miles west of Alsea, and surrounded by the Siuslaw National Forest, produces a variety of brews from their own hops and barley grown on site as well as cider from their apple trees. They are open to the public on a random schedule so call ahead.

The Visit Corvallis Guide 2018 / 2019
Visit the Dairy Pilot Plant in Withycombe Hall where there is ongoing manufacturing, quality, sales, training, and supervision of the student workforce involved with the production of OSU’s Beaver Classic™ Cheese. OSU has served as a business incubator for Oregon’s growing artisan cheese industry. The Wine Research Institute at OSU has also stepped up its role in the ever-growing wine industry in Oregon, by devoting more staff and laboratory resources. The College of Agricultural Science owns a 14-acre research vineyard, Woodhall III, accessible to students, researchers, and industry professionals. Excess fruit is sold to hobby winemakers and interested parties each year. For more information about College of Agricultural Science agsci.oregonstate.edu
Peak to Pacific Scenic Byway Just accepted by the Oregon Department of Transportation as a new scenic byway, Peak to Pacific follows Hwy 34 from the I-5 exit in Tangent (Linn County) to Waldport (Lincoln County) on the Pacific Coast. The byway passes through Corvallis and Philomath, before continuing west to Alsea, Tidewater and Waldport. Byway spurs include Mary’s Peak and Alsea Falls. Achieving this designation has taken years and will serve to demonstrate the working landscapes of the Willamette Valley and the Coast Range.

Corvallis, home of the original
Goat yoga has been an international viral sensation popping up as far as Australia and South Africa. The original, though, is helmed by Lainey Morse & Heather Davis of Corvallis Oregon, and they’ve got something big in the works: the Goatel, which, sensibly, is a hotel with goats. Nestled atop a beautiful hill in the Willamette Valley, The Goatel Retreat Center is a place for you to disconnect from stress, depression or illness and find your inner calm and recharge. Come spend some time with the goats and see for yourself just how powerful Goat Therapy can be. You can attend one of our Yoga Retreats, you can book The Goatel and create your own weekend retreat, or just bring your friends for a “Slumber Party” (no Yoga) weekend, and hang out with goats for Goat Happy Hour. The Goatel is also perfect for private events like corporate health & wellness and team bonding events. We will customize every retreat and event for you.
Our property in Corvallis Oregon has been well-known for the past 30 years. The owner, Pat Covey of the Hanson Country Inn, a historic bed-and-breakfast helps to create the experience. Morse says she’s been offering goat yoga classes on the inn’s property for about a year now, so they’re the perfect partner for the new enterprise. The Goatel will be the first vacation destination in the world to offer goat yoga and goat happy hours along with hikes in the Coastal Mountains, local brewery and winery tours, organic meals from local purveyors, and more. The goats on the property are always there for people to bond with, for them to help bottle feed babies, or to just sit next to and cuddle. Goat therapy is the best therapy and we want to cater this toward people who really need to get away from it all and recharge.
