Pendleton
Travel Guide

Nature, pioneer heritage, one of the world’s largest rodeos and some unusual beers make this rural town a great place to discover Oregon’s charm.

Surrounded by the best of Oregon’s natural beauty, Pendleton combines a long lineage of traditional Western heritage with the modern food and culture trends that the state has garnered a name for. This mountain town, in the north of Oregon, is a popular destination for those wanting to discover the stories of the “Wild West.” Hike in the dense old growth forests and enjoy an evening tasting craft beer and homely food. With a rich history of agricultural industries, including cattle farming, wool production, leather craft and fishing, Pendleton is a true rural town and a great place to get back to nature.

Rent a bike or set off on foot to see the key historic sites in the compact heart of town. Attractions include the Pendleton Woolen Mills and the site of the Pendleton Round-Up, one of the largest rodeos in the world. The event is held annually in September. Visit a traditional leather and saddle shop to see handmade items that are characteristic of the Oregon area. Attend a performance by the local symphony or spend an afternoon at the Tamástslikt Cultural Institute, the only Native American museum in the region.

By night join the locals at a pub or sit down for a steak from one of the local ranches. Breweries in Oregon have spearheaded America’s craft beer culture and Pendleton is a great place to try some local brews.

Explore the region surrounding the town for great hiking, fishing and climbing. Rent a car from within the town to head to the Wallowa Mountains, the Painted Hills and Hells Canyon for stunning views and a diverse range of flora and fauna. See the John Day Fossil Beds, a national monument, to see the vibrant colored rock faces.

Located 4 hours from Portland’s International Airport, Pendleton can be reached by car, bus or train. Once you’re in the town you’ll find a wide range of accommodation, ranging from camping right through to family-friendly hotels. Pendleton can be visited year-round but experiences cold winters so come prepared for all the fun activities to enjoy in the snow.

Great hotel in La Grande
"Great hotel! Really great price! The bed was super comfortable and the room and bathroom were clean. This place is a little run down, but it worked well for what I needed: a comfortable place to sleep and a shower in the morning. The staff is very friendly too. Would recommend."
