On a road trip to Portland, we took a brief detour to McMinnville, Oregon. Although it is situated in the heart of the Willamette Valley wine country, we came to see historic airplanes. One plane in particular was of interest, Howard Hughes' "Spruce Goose." This piece of history has found its way to this small Oregon town. It resides within the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum along with many other interesting aircraft. After visiting the museum, we were short on time and had to forego wine tasting. But the aviation museum was well worth the visit and wine tasting in the Willamette Valley will have to wait for another day.
- Pros:Home of a great aviation museum.
- Cons:A very small town.
- In a nutshell:Small town with an excellent aviation museum.
