Our annual Christmas journey goes north to Portland. Mt. Angel and Silverton are about an hour from the city. After lunch and a holiday-themed stop in Portland, travel south to Silverton, home to the Oregon Gardens. This is the last night of the Silverton Christmas Market, and we'll arrive in time for you to enjoy the walk through lights and goodies from the vendors on site. Your accommodations for two nights are at the Oregon Garden Resort.
On Christmas Eve, we'll visit the Mount Angel Abbey, founded by Swiss Monks in 1882. The monks also brew their own beer, and you'll have an opportunity to sample. We'll have two gift exchanges. One where you bring something modest and we distribute. The second is where we provide the gifts, and you spend the evening trying to steal the one you want... Traditionally, if it's available, we provide transportation to Christmas Eve services.
On Christmas Day, we'll enjoy a holiday meal together and make our way back to Portland for our short return flight home. We do our best to get home by early evening. The package includes 5 meals and airfare.
