Warm Up In Wilsonville

Winter in Wilsonville can be chilly despite the mild climate of the Pacific Northwest. There’s no better time to bundle up, stay inside and enjoy your favorite cold-weather comforts. Inspired by the Danish concept of hygge (pronounced hue-guh), this list was designed to bring you comfort, togetherness and warmth to power through winter’s long, dark nights.


  • Home goods and house plants

  • Axe throwing
  • Community and connection

7 Stops

Dutch Bros. Coffee

There’s a reason the drive-thru line is typically wrapped around the parking lot at Dutch Bros. With a rotating roster of sweet espresso drinks, flavored energy drinks and frozen treats (yes, even in the winter!), you can satisfy your caffeine craving and your sweet tooth with just one stop.

McMenamins Old Church & Pub

Plan for a hearty lunch at McMenamins after a morning of exploring Wilsonville. Grab a winter ale to counter a warm plate of comfort food. For a chilly afternoon, the Brewmaster’s Sausage Plate with an Edgefield Hard Cider hits the spot. Go back later in the evening for the Bourbon Furnace, crafted with McMenamins spirits.

Cedar and Stone Mercantile (Sherwood)

Home goods and houseplants–need we say more? Treat yourself to a shopping excursion at Cedar & Stone Mercantile and admire the beauty all around. There are unique gifts, treasures and meaningful trinkets around every corner.
