From National Register of Historic Places sites to the only American-owned saké brewery in the country, Forest Grove is home to some truly unique venues. A historical walking tour will fill your imagination with details of how the city came to be, and a stroll through Pacific University’s tree-filled grounds will have you reminiscing about your own college days.
Feeling inspired by the natural surroundings? A walk through one of the city’s parks, or a short drive to one of the nearby recreation areas will give you plenty of flora and fauna to explore. When you’re ready to head back to civilization, a wide variety of shops and restaurants make Forest Grove the perfect place for a good meal and souvenir shopping.
If Oregon’s famed Pinot Noir brought you to the area, then you can fill several days savoring the wineries in Forest Grove and its surrounding hills. Be sure to visit our annual events calendar before planning your trip so you don’t miss out on beautiful classic cars, an authentic Hawaiian luau or the jaunty tunes of competing barbershop quartets while you’re in town.
To tour the area under your own steam, rent a bicycle and pedal your way through the Coast Range foothills, or leave the wheels behind and use your own two feet to enjoy the very walkable downtown. Go ahead and investigate the attractions listings below to find the options that put you in a vacation state of mind.
