Corvallis is nestled in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley, between the beautiful Cascade Mountains (photo) and the scenic Oregon coast. It has a population of 55,000 and buys more power from renewable resources than any other city in the nation.
The surrounding countryside offers a wide range of outdoor activities, including biking, hiking, fishing and rafting. The town of Corvallis was settled in the mid-1800's and also offers interesting historical sites and cultural activities. For more information on Corvallis, visit the Corvallis Tourism website.
