The word “Corvallis” refers to “heart of the valley”, and this town of about 55,000 residents is nestled in the mid-Willamette Valley between the Coast and Cascade Mountain ranges.  Surrounded by Salem and Portland to the North, Eugene to the South, and only 45 minutes from Newport on the coast, there is plenty to do in and around Corvallis.

While planning your visit to Corvallis for NORM 2013, consider arriving a little early for the famed da Vinci Days Festival taking place July 19-21.  Be sure to also check the Corvallis Chamber of Commerce events calendar for other happenings. 

Don’t miss Corvallis’ charming downtown with a Farmer’s Market Saturday mornings, and variety of restaurants, not to mention handful of local breweries and new cider house just outside downtown.
