About Me:
The Washington County Visitors Association is the official destination marketing organization for the Tualatin Valley (aka Oregon's Washington County). The Tualatin Valley is situated between the city of Portland and the Oregon Coast, and is the gateway to Oregon wine country. Just minutes from Portland, the Tualatin Valley boasts a number of wineries, breweries, golf courses, restaurants and lodging properties.

Story Ideas:
The Tualatin Valley is special because:

1) It is gateway to Oregon wine country, is located in the northern Willamette Valley, and boasts the closest vineyard estate wineries to Portland.

2) The Tualatin Valley is home to Oregon's ONLY sake brewery, and the FIRST American owned-and-operated large-production sake brewery. It's open daily for tastings and tours.

3) In addition to wineries, it boasts an up-and-coming restaurant scene (many of the best Korean restaurants in the entire Portland region), and brewery scene (a dozen breweries and growing).

4) The Tualatin Valley is a preeminent bird watching (birding) destination, with five dedicated nature parks/preserves specifically designed for bird and wildlife watching and flora walks, including a national wildlife refuge.

5) The Tualatin Valley is part urban (Nike, Columbia Sportswear and Leupold are headquartered here), and mostly rural, with u-pick farms, nurseries, scenic tour routes, hiking and cycling trails, camping and more.
