Go Far Out (Day Trip/Overnight)

saberforgeAre you in touch with your inner nerd? This itinerary will let you see the out of this world activities that can be found in Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory. 

Day 1:

Get braced, earthling, for an out of this world journey in The Territory. Feed on UFO-shaped fare at Kyra's Bake Shop in Lake Oswego; all items engineered to please without gluten. Then, check out evidence from a cosmic collision. The Willamette Meteorite is the largest piece of space dust found in North America, and the replica in West Linn sits near its discovery location. Jet to Oregon City and ride the municipal elevator into the First City's space ship observation deck. Blast off to SaberForge and gear up for galactic wars at the world's first light saber showroom. Set your course to Milwaukie's Things From Another World and gather comics for your interstellar flight.

Refuel your craft at Happy Valley Station where fleets of food carts are docked and serving up eats from across the universe. Rocket to Wilsonville where you can zap aliens at the Family Fun Center Arcade. Rookie practice, you say? Play for real in Milwaukie's Ultrazone, a 5,000-square-foot, two-level laser tag arena, and then travel through time and space to the city's Main Street Collector's Mall and Soda Fountain with classic milkshakes and sandwiches.

Drift to Oregon City's Haggart Observatory and stargaze through a 24 Newtonian reflector telescope. Land at a vacation rental on the mountain in preparation for another outer space adventure.

Day 2:

Start with a heaping plate of Huckleberry Inn's pancakes they serve interstellar travelers 24 hours a day. Consider this: high adventure activities (alpine slide, zip line, mountain biking, bungee, disc golf) or far-out explorations (hiking, horseback rides, kayaking). Recharge your batteries at Skyway Bar and Grill then go stargazing at Timberline Lodge. In winter, try a moonlight snowshoe tour or light it up with Cosmic Tubing at Mt. Hood Skibowl.

In outer space, you can and will want to stretch time. Want to know how? Stay another night.
