Go Far Out (Day Trip/Overnight)

Are 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 spaceship shaped observation deck. Set your course to Milwaukie's Things From Another World and gather comics for your interstellar flight. Rocket to Wilsonville where you can zap aliens at the Family Fun Center Arcade. Then travel through time and space to the city's Main Street Collector's Mall and Soda Fountain with classic milkshakes and sandwiches.

Refuel your craft at Happy Valley Station where fleets of food carts are docked and serving up eats from across the universe. Then navigate to the town of Boring where you can learn about area sightings of everyone's favorite cryptid, Sasquatch at the North American Bigfoot Center

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.
