From the

Mayor Welcome to Corvallis

We are so pleased that you have chosen to visit our community, whether for business, pleasure or both. Corvallis is a delightful City in either case. 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 nations’ 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 Pac 12 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 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.

Check out hotel amenities, local events, find hiking & biking trails, brewery tours, room service options, dining & shopping, e OSU map, local events, make advance dinner reservations, book a spa visit or massage, and even play free games.

Dining

F

or a town of this size there’s no shortage of cuisine options available. Chef and owner Kimber Hoang of Magenta serves up different foods of Southeast Asia, using organic local produce and meats in her seasonal menus. Big River offers a wide variety of healthy menu choices. They utilize ingredients found in and around the Willamette Valley and from the Oregon Coast, which is only an hour away.

Del Alma brings vibrant flavors of Latin America, while Cloud & Kelly’s offers a wee bit of Ireland right here in Corvallis.

Many restaurants in town serve local wines and craft brews for just the right pairings.

More casual atmospheres can be found at several local breweries like Block 15, Sky High Brewing and Flat Tail Brewing. American Dream Pizza features gourmet pizzas, hand rolled crusts, homemade pizza sauces and an amazing array of cheeses and toppings. Just upstairs is Crowbar, which takes pride in mixing tasty cocktails using their liquor infusions and freshly muddled juices.

There are an array of food and wine events throughout the year, beginning in January with Corvallis Culinary Week, Rhapsody in the Vineyard in March, the Craft Beer Picnic in July and Septembeerfest in September. For more information on all of our events happening throughout the year, please visit our website.

Cheers! By Mary Pat Parker & Marci Sischo

Wineries Home of many locally owned and nationally known wineries, the Heart of Willamette Wineries invite you to come sip all of their flavors. These boutique vineyards enjoy some of the most favorable grape-growing conditions in the Willamette Valley and the wine makers will gladly tell you their stories. This is part of what makes wine tasting here so much fun. Mostly family owned, these stewards place equally high value in producing quality pinots and other varietals while being completely committed to sustainable practices. The tasting rooms are set in beautiful countryside with plenty of opportunities to picnic, relax and explore.

Breweries & Cider Houses Distilleries Five different 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 has won several awards over the years and their sports bar atmosphere makes it a fun place to watch a game. Sky High, Mazama Brewing and Oregon Trail Brewery all offer great venues and brews. In addition to craft beers, Two Towns Ciderhouse specializes in crisp, fantastic ciders made from locally produced apples, honey and other special ingredients. New on the scene is Honey Creek Nectar Wine, a refreshing light beverage all made with local honey.

While wineries and breweries play a large role in our libation scene, Benton County is also becoming known for its’ distilleries and cider houses as well. Two such examples are 4 Spirits distillery and Spiritopia to name just two. 4 Spirits has been producing award winning craft spirits since 2011. With a new location opening in May 2017, 4 Spirits offers a destination experience including a full bar and retail tasting room, expanded production and distillery viewing areas, and unique spaces for a wide variety of events. Groups of any size can relax and enjoy views of Marys Peak in this semi-rural setting with a diverse array of handmade whiskeys, vodkas and rums. 4 Sprits food & drink offers freshly made cocktails along with a variety of local beer, wine, cider and food selections. Spiritopia is a craft distillery based in Corvallis that specializes in liqueurs and brandy. This family owned business was founded by Spirit Chemist Chris Beatty four years ago and now has four products. They have three liqueurs – ginger, apple and pomegranate and also a Bourbon- style Apple Brandy. The ginger liqueur is very popular and won Best of Show/Double Gold Medal at the Seattle International Spirits Competition in 2016.

arts&culture The food, brew culture, wine and outdoor recreation, along with being a university town, all contribute to making Corvallis a wonderful place to visit. But a big part of the town’s appeal lies in our arts and culture community. There’s an abundance of visual, performing arts and musical theater throughout town. One example is the Corvallis Arts Guild, with their wonderful “hanging around town” program. With over 100 members who have been juried into the Guild, they are allowed to hang their works in a variety of public places, from offices to banks, restaurants, doctor’s offices and more. These local original artworks rotate on a monthly or bi-monthly basis and most works are for sale.

One unique venue in downtown is 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. The newly restored marquee at the Whiteside Theater showcases the commitment of their restoration foundation to restoring this 91-year old historical monument. The Arts Center is dedicated to integrating the arts into community life. They offer 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. The Corvallis community is enriched with performances as Oregon State University students’ share their talents through the Chamber choir, the OSU Marching Band, the symphony, chamber ensembles, jazz ensembles, solo recitals 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 in our website to view live music and dance listings.

The Great O Whether you are a birding or biking enthusiast you can find it all in and around Corvallis. Bird lovers will appreciate the care that William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge has taken to provide a winter habitat for migrating Dusky Canadian geese. With over 5,000 acres of protected land, visitors can view these nomadic fowl in the winter months and explore other native species that call the refuge home year-round. Other birding “hot spots” in or near Corvallis include the 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 Visitor Center. Your off-road adventure 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 singletrack paths connectiing to Fitton Green, Oak Creek and Cardwell Hill County Parks. You’re liable to see deer, coyotes 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 4097 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, well we’re pleased to tell you there is more than fifty great hikes nearby. You can choose a walk through town where you can tour two distinct historic districts, alley art and stroll along the riverfront, or you can choose to explore the great outdoors at nearby Peavy Arboretum- the gateway to the McDonald Research Forest. Or visit the astonishing Starker Forests only minutes from town. Additional hiking information is available at the Visit Corvallis office.

“Marys Peak is the highest point in the Coastal Range at an elevation of 4097 feet, and on a clear day you can see all the way to the Cascades or the ocean.”

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. Some of the best ways to explore these outdoor amenities is to schedule a trip with Cascadia Expeditions. They are offering morning and afternoon hiking trips with the added bonus of beer tastings in the afternoon. They also have tours that include a Breakfast with the Birds Float, Craft Brew River Tour and a Paddling for Pinot- Kayaking and Winery Tour.

Agritourism Benton County’s diverse economy is based largely on agriculture – growing products that include Christmas trees, wine grapes, seed crops, dairy, sheep, produce and more.

One of the many good reasons why OSU plays such a vital role in the community is the College of Agricultural Sciences.

They operate eleven branches of experiment and research centers in fifteen locations around the state.
