It’s Impossible Not To Be Charmed By This One Oregon Small Town
Dreaming of a small town getaway? Look no further than the town of Halfway, Oregon. Nestled in a stunning valley at the foot of the Wallowa Mountains, it’s impossible not to fall in love with Halfway and its small-town charm. This peaceful little community is home to jaw-dropping scenery, colorful shops, and fascinating history.
Take a look:
With a population of just under 300, Halfway is a teensy tiny town located in Baker County.
Located along the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway, this town is truly a paradise for nature lovers and adventurers. There are endless opportunities to go hiking, rafting, camping, or simply relax.
The quaint little downtown area is filled with character and rustic charm.
Every year Halfway hosts a number of lovely festivals and celebrations. The Pine Fest Music Festival is fondly known as "the tiniest music festival in the tiniest town."
While you're in town, you'll need to pay a visit to the Halfway Whimsical Artist's Cooperative. This gallery and gift shop features work from local Oregon artists.
For a glimpse into Halfway's past, head to the Pine Valley Museum.
A wide variety of historic pioneer artifacts are displayed here. The mounted animal exhibit includes the largest Rocky Mountain Elk in Pine Valley.
Visitors can also take in some more recent history, including the entry sign from when Halfway briefly changed their name to half.com in 2000. It was part of a promotional deal with an Internet startup company.
If you're hungry, Wild Bill's Cafe and Bar is a great place to grab a meal.
This restaurant is known for their mouthwatering buffalo burgers.
When you're ready to turn in for the night, the Pine Valley Lodge is the perfect place to rest and recharge.
A visit to Halfway is truly a one-of-a-kind experience.
