Adventures/Activities

Air & Space Museum

Located in nearby McMinnville, the Evergreen Air & Space Museum is home to Howard Hughes’s Spruce Goose, a massive airplane built entirely of wood due to wartime restrictions during WWII. Dreams of flight have captured imaginations for centuries. The museum features aircraft, exhibitions, and artifacts that offer stunning examples of aviation and space history. After a museum tour, thrill seekers can cool off at Wings & Waves Water Park.

Drive-In Movie Theater

Built in 1953, the 99W Drive-In is one of the last remaining drive-in theaters in the nation. Watch movies from the comfort of your car and enjoy some old-fashioned fun. Open late April through late October, depending on weather.
