Dundee.. home of the speeding ticket!

You could go to Newberg! Woo Hoo!

There isn't much in Dundee itself, it's just one of many small rural bergs in Oregon, but...

You are also within an hour of Portland, and darned close to the coast. If flying in, you'll see Portland anyway..

Nothing like the Oregon coast! It's VERY close!

It's been a while since you've been in Dundee, I think. It's now called "The Divided City of Dundee". Those the live on side of the highway can't get across the highway to the other side. Maximum speed through Dundee is 1.5 mph, if you're lucky.

There's a few wineries in the neighborhood. Not much else. I would recommend a rental car and visit the coast and the coast mountain range. I fell in love with this part of Oregon a long time ago. I spent 3 weeks driving through coast range and up and down the coast. That was 40+ years ago and I'm still finding new things to see.

Try Mt. Hood. Timberline Lodge is worth the visit. The views from the lodge are fantastic. Wander around the public areas of the lodge and look at the art work. There's a small museum on lower floor. Ride the Magic Mile ski lift. You can ride it back down too. I think you'll find it all very interesting and a great way to spend a day.

More information can be found on the Timberline Lodge web site.

Don't forget your camera, you'll want to take lots of pictures.

Drive East out of Portland up the scenic Columbia River Gorge (Part of the Lewis and Clark trail) (I-84 highway) and stop and visit Multnomah Falls (Multnomah Falls is the second highest year-round waterfall in the nation). Continue on east and cross the Columbia River at the Bridge of the Gods and take the highway westbound back toward Portland/Vancouver. You'll see both sides of the Columbia, one of the most scenic areas in Oregon (heck the Pacific NW...nah...the nation!).

byron, SNOW- SNOW really!

is there really snow in july up there? WOW

checked out that website and it looks great!

more! more!

donna we are taking a gray line tour bus to the unpronouncable falls. the website says the tour covers the city, some other places and the falls. also maybe a walk on a bridge which sounds scary. i think i saw a picture of that kind of bridge in the andes mountains.

still do not have a place to stay, any thoughts?

Oh by the way, don't sneeze or blink when you get to Dundee..you'll be through town before you open your eyes. But it's pretty country with lots of wine vinyards in the area

Yes there's snow. They ski year around. No snow on the roads though. Wildflowers should be in full display about now.

Try Here:

Hotel Oregon

It's in McMinnville, not too far from Dundee.

If it is like most Mcmenimans, you'll definately need ressises, but they are all nice and fun places.

I echo Gorge trip AND Timberline lodge.. tho I had a really bad experience there once.

I got engaged.

I was thru Dundee in December Byron.. I could smell the blue lights from miles away!

(Sorry, inside Oregonian jokes...)

Well as folks have been mentioning - there are a ton of things to do in OR.

If you are a wine drinker at all - you could easily spend several days doing winery tours. The whole area is choc-ful of small, very nice wineries. As noted previously ( ), traffic and traffic tickets are thick in Dundee - to catch all the city folks speeding from winery-to-winery - most likely a bit under-the-influence :rofl

My advice is wine tours on weekdays and, as far away as possible on weekends. Dundee is pretty small - try to walk a lot.

Have fun
