Evergreen Air Museum, McMinnville Shopping

Friday, August 28, 2015 - 11:00am to 4:00pm

One Bus- Two Separate Tours! Choose this trip if you want to go to either location. With displays ranging from the elegant aeronautic designs of two unknown bike mechanics – Orville and Wilbur Wright – to an actual Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird that can fly at speeds of over 2,000 miles per hour – the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum located in McMinnville, Oregon, has a little something for everyone. The centerpiece of these aeronautical breakthroughs is the original Spruce Goose. Built entirely of wood, due to wartime restrictions on metals, this massive airplane stands as a symbol of American industry during World War II. Purchase Museum entry ($25.00 Adult), and lunch on your own at the café.
If that is not your cup of tea -or glass of wine- stay aboard and we will travel into downtown McMinnville, Oregon. Located in the Yamhill County wine region of Oregon’s lush Willamette Valley, McMinnville is a charming community. Sprinkled throughout downtown McMinnville are restored, turn-of-the century buildings reinvented as restaurants (where you can get lunch), wine bars, antiques stores and unique shops. Stroll along the tree-lined streets or relax in a city park to enjoy this cozy community in Willamette Valley wine country.
