With moderate temperatures most of the year (ok so we do get a little rain in the winter . . . ), Monmouth and the beautiful surrounding area offer an idyllic backdrop for getting out. There is plenty to do and see in the area.  With so many excellent options for great food, plenty of history and multiple venues for the Arts locally, you may not even be tempted to take the short drive to the coast, the mountains, Portland to the North or Eugene to the South.

But if you do decide to venture out, Monmouth makes a great place to start from!
