Oregon's Favorite Main Street
McMinnville sits smack in the middle of Oregon’s famous Willamette Valley wine region, but don’t call it a “small town.”
Underneath its charm lies a beguiling mix of ambition, community spirit and passion about business that makes it a town small of stature with options you’d expect in a large city. The combination makes it perfect for couples seeking an escape that balances classic Oregon pleasures: food, wine and fresh air. Roughly equidistant between Portland and Salem, McMinnville feels far away, yet offers a rich range of eating, drinking and relaxing that can be experienced in an overnight trip.
The McMinnville Downtown Association works to promote and enhance our historic downtown as the economic, social and cultural heart of the community.
