Saturday, August 19, 2023 — or anytime!

Crabtree, Scio and Stayton

Running on empty thinking of date night ideas?

Take a drive around our beautiful Willamette Valley and discover new things about your own backyard – and your partner!

Download a map and a few short podcasts to spark conversation along the way and you will be ready and set to go.  Participating businesses offered incentives for those that participated on August 19, but you can still visit or explore the route on your own another time that fits your schedule.

The loop is about a two-hour drive along a covered bridge tour route where you can enter from anywhere and choose your own adventure with as many or few stops as you like. The three podcasts are interviews with real couples followed by questions to discuss and learn with your partner.

Get the Tour Package with everything you need before this free event (print and download before you go since cell service may be spotty along the route).

Have fun together and rev up your relationship!

Some options to upgrade your ride might include:


Bring a blanket and your favorite snacks for a picnic

Pick up a romantic meal on your way out of town – or along the route

Invite another couple to double date and tailgate together

Gather several friends to join your caravan

Enjoy the refreshing scenery

Discover historic covered bridges

Park and take a dip at a swimming hole
