Is the weather always perfect in Oregon? As a Minnesotan, I am obsessed with the weather because it is ever-changing and has a huge impact on my daily activities. All four days of this trip had temperatures in the 70’s, partly to mostly sunny, low humidity, and a cool breeze. My complaining instinct went dormant.
Dallas, Oregon is west of Salem. It is a town full of friendly people and public art and a downtown that looks like the set of a family-friendly movie. It has a century-old stone courthouse in the town square surrounded by fun shops. City Park has a few miles of footpaths and bridges over a creek. Due to an ankle injury, I am limited to only walking a few miles at a time. That is just fine for this trip. There is plenty to see.
Dallas, Oregon is a great place to spend an afternoon exploring. I found myself constantly saying, “Cool! Look at that!” If you like public art, independantly owned shops, and walking paths, you will like Dallas. This Minnesotan was pleased that neither bug spray nor a jacket was required.
