Springfield

Settled in the south Willamette Valley, Springfield is the perfect hub for a day full of adventures.

We like to think our Springfield is the famed Springfield of The Simpsons. Meet Bart, Lisa, Marge and (d’oh!) Homer at the Springfield Museum. Go back in time at Dorris Ranch, a 250-acre farm that’s more than 100 years old, making it the state’s oldest working filbert farm. Fill up on fresh fruits and veggies at the year-round farmers’ market. Or leave to the experts and fill up at a tasty eatery.
