Traveling to Pendleton for some fun – sometime

The stay-at-home order has made traveling around Oregon a little tougher than normal.

But that doesn’t mean that we can’t still be thinking of all the great places we’ll want to visit once we get this all under control.

One such place to consider? The Wild West town of Pendleton, Oregon.

Home to the famous Pendleton Round-Up rodeo, the distinctive wool blankets and shirts of Pendleton Woolen Mills and a burgeoning craft beer and artisan whiskey scene, Pendleton is also a great place for something else: Families.

That’s right, Pendleton can make for a great family-friendly destination in Eastern Oregon, with its history and culture, parks aplenty, hiking trails, swimming pools, sports galore and even spooky underground tunnels.

I wrote all about what Pendleton has to offer for families in a recent story for Travel Oregon.
