Getting Around the Yamhill Valley

When you stay at 3rd Street Flats, Historic Downtown McMinnville is at your doorstep. You don’t need a car as much as you need a good pair of shoes–actually, our locations are so good even a pair of fabulous-but-not-so-comfy shoes will do. Everything you’ll want to see and do in Downtown McMinnville is within walking distance.

But if you’d like to experience the rest of the valley, wheels are a must. You can rent your own at the Portland Airport and blaze your own trail with map in hand, rent a car or limo for the day, or trust an experienced guide to show you the best of the valley. Here are some resources to help you plan your Yamhill Valley experience. . .
