What you'll do

Remember the old Oregon Trail computer game? Well, we will avoid the rigors of the Oregon Trail by taking a quicker and easier route by train. We will take the Amtrak to the official end of the Oregon Trail, known as Oregon City (OC). Along the way we will contemplate the dangers we may face and hopefully choose our occupation and companions wisely! Once we arrive in OC, we will hear daunting stories of the pioneers while exploring the End of the Oregon Trail Museum. Next we will venture into downtown and learn about the unique architecture of this pioneer city. Treats may be had at OC’s best chocolatier. After some free time, we will make our way up America’s only vertical street to the Promenade, a walkway that leads to America’s 2nd most powerful waterfall. Learn how the falls were important to both local indigenous tribes and the settlers of the 19th century. After taking choice photos of the falls, we will wander amongst the historic homes of OC, including that of John McLoughlin, the father of Oregon. Our final stop will give kudos to modern Oregon history, by imbibing in a handcrafted beer (or root beer!) at my favorite Oregon City brewery.
