3 Reasons for a Midweek Escape to Mt. Hood
In Mt. Hood Territory, we’ve made a New Year’s resolution to offer more great midweek deals at lodging properties and on unique and fun activities throughout our destination. We’ve missed traveling, and we’re guessing you have too. One road trip just gets us wanting more vacay vibes. That’s why we want to help you save time and money vacationing, whether you’ve made the drive from the edges of the state or from Portland.
Traveling midweek offers more advantages than just saving money. When planning your next trip, it’s so worth it to take a few days off from work (or work remotely with plenty to see and do after you turn off your computer). Tired of sitting in your car, but going nowhere? Do your feet still hurt from standing in line for brunch? Typically, you’ll experience less traffic getting to – and shorter lines at – popular attractions, such as our ski resorts, affording you lots of room to spread out and breathe.
You’ll find midweek deals mthoodterritory.com/midweek, with more added on an ongoing basis, so mark your calendars regularly to check out what’s new. A few you can take advantage of as of January 2022 include:
- Save 25% on weekday snowmobile tours with Mt. Hood Adventures.
- Stay at Collins Lake Resort midweek and earn two night lift tickets to Mt. Hood Skibowl.
- Visit the North American Bigfoot Center on Tuesdays and Wednesdays this winter for discounted $5 admission tickets.
More time and money in your pocket means you can also see and do more, such as discover ski history and super cool, old ski equipment at Mt. Hood Cultural Center & Museum, try the absolute best mac and cheese at Skyway Bar & Grill, take home earth-conscious, lovely things from Koya Kitchen’s gift shop and eat sweets to your heart’s content in Sandy… We’re talking Joe’s Donuts, cookies as big as your head at Tollgate Inn Bakery and perfectly sweet crepes at Le Happy!
Right now, the midweek deals you’ll find are on and around Mt. Hood (‘tis the season!), but as the year progresses, expect to see deals around our entire destination, from Lake Oswego and Oregon City’s main streets filled with boutique shops, local restaurants and lively outdoor art installations to Wilsonville’s many unique farms filled with friendly miniature donkeys, camels, emus and foodie experiences.
We’d love to see you vacationing in action. Share your moments with @mthoodterritory and #mthoodterritory, so we can be sure to offer any number of burning travel tips and ensure you know about the latest must-visit patios along Highway 26.
