One of the most picturesque destinations in the Pacific Northwest has to be the city of Lake Oswego, Oregon, located a mere 10 miles south of downtown Portland and surrounding the lake of the same name. This community offers the laid-back qualities so common in many Pacific Northwest towns with all of the activities you want to have in a vacation destination. It's no wonder that this is one of the fastest growing communities outside of Portland itself.
The city of Lake Oswego surrounds Oswego Lake, a 420-acre lake for swimming, boating, fishing, and other water activities. The lake is perfect for outdoor recreation particularly during the Summer months when the weather is warmer. There is also the Willamette River not far away. The city is situated between Mount Hood and the expansive beaches of the Pacific, which means you have your choices between some of the best hiking trails and sandy beaches all within two hours of one another.
If you prefer golfing than you're going to want to pay a visit to the Oswego Lake Country Club, a prestigious members-only club. This beautiful course originally built in 1924, and the 1925 historic clubhouse recently underwent a complete remodel in 2017. The Oswego Public Golf Course lays just on the other side of the lake and is an 18-hole par-3 facility with holes ranging from 74–179 yards.
The Lake Oswego Farmers’ Market is open each Saturday (May through October) and has over 80 vendors selling a variety of meats, produce, nuts, cheeses, jams, baked goods, and fresh seafood. There are other annual events throughout the year including the Star Spangled Parade and Celebration for the Fourth of July, and concerts during the Summer months and a Holiday Tree Lighting in December.
Lake Oswego has plenty of vacation rentals to choose from. One of the highest rated and the only one on the lake itself is the Lake Shore Inn located right in the middle of Downtown. There are many amenities, which makes this an ideal location to stay. Some of the rooms feature kitchenettes, and there are even a few dog-friendly rooms. Besides the Lake Shore Inn, there are many other hotels locally as well just 10 mins up the road in Portland.
Lake Oswego experiences short warm summers and very cold, overcast and mostly wet winters. The temperature typically varies from 36°F in the Winter months to 84°F in late July early August. The best time of the year to visit Lake Oswego is from early July to late August.
