The Willamette (emphasis is on the "a") Valley is the heart of Oregon's agricultural country - and it's a big heart. Besides fruits, nuts and vegetables, farms in the valley grow everything from Christmas trees to flowers to front lawns.
Many pioneers found their promised land in this valley; and some of their descendants are still working that land today. During growing seasons (and sometimes year-round), roadside stands dot picturesque country lanes, and farmer's markets appear in the valley's historic towns.
A burgeoning wine industry is gaining prestige for its vigor and for Oregon's top varietal: Pinot noir. The valley's flat terrain and temperate climate make it a favorite for hikers and cyclists, who also enjoy the paved bike paths in the college towns of Eugene and Corvallis.
