Corvallis is a small college town of about 50000 people, located in the heart of the Willamette Valley in Oregon. As a university town, Corvallis offers visitors a wide variety of cultural activities. Located between the Cascade mountains and the Pacific coast ranges, Corvallis provides ample opportunities for outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, fishing, golf, river rafting, and skiing, or simply enjoying nature with its wildlife refuges, rivers, and lakes. Also, don't forget to visit one of the many wineries in Corvallis or the Willamette Valley.
Corvallis is less than an hour drive away from the Pacific Ocean with its spectacular beaches and stunning wild-life, offering visitors everything from whale watching to kite surfing. The many small fishing towns and harbors make visits to the Oregon coast memorable moments.
Portland, the largest city in Oregon, is a 90 minute drive to the north and offers all the amenities of a big city, including many museums and exhibitions, in a cozy, bike-friendly, and welcoming environment.
