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.

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.

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.
