Located on the eastern edge of the Tualatin Valley, the city of Beaverton is just minutes away from Portland and all of the attractions and amenities the city has to offer. Instead of fighting the traffic and paying to park, explore the fun and exciting treasures in your own backyard. You’ll be amazed what you will discover this spring in the Tualatin Valley.
Crisp, cool spring weather brings many opportunities for outdoor adventure. Zip over Brunswick Canyon at Pumpkin Ridge Zip Tours, a 2.5-hour zip tour. At Tree to Tree Adventure Park, master the aerial ropes course, fly through trees in the zip-line park, or climb a tree in the Monkey Grove.
With spring flowers in bloom, this is the best time to cycle along the Tualatin Valley Scenic Bikeway. This 50-mile designated bike trail takes cyclists through rural Washington County, and incorporates the car-free Banks-Vernonia State Trail, one of the region’s most popular multi-use trails. A ride (or walk) along the Banks-Vernonia Trail is a great way to view the wonders of the Tualatin Valley.
While grapevines have yet to bloom, new vintages of wines are starting to blossom. The Tualatin Valley has more than 35 wineries, each showcasing exquisite Pinot Noir and dozens of other varietals. Tasting rooms are welcoming, and best of all, no experience is required to enjoy the wines. On the second weekend of each April, Wine Trail Weekend, sponsored by the North Willamette Vintners, showcases more than a dozen wineries with a weekend of wine tastings, pairings and live music and demonstrations.
