Downtown Historic Lake Oswego Oregon

Downtown Lake Oswego is a charming and vibrant area located in the city of Lake Oswego, Oregon. As an out of town visitor, I had the opportunity to explore this charming area and was impressed by the variety of things to see and do.

One of the first things that caught my attention was the historic architecture of the downtown buildings. Many of the buildings have been beautifully preserved and restored, giving the area a charming, old-world feel. The streets are lined with unique shops, restaurants, and cafes, making it the perfect place to spend an afternoon browsing and people watching.

One of the highlights of my visit was a trip to the Lakewood Center for the Arts, a beautiful theater and art center located in the heart of downtown. The center offers a wide variety of performances and exhibits throughout the year, and I was fortunate enough to catch a play during my visit. The theater was intimate and the performances were top-notch.

Another must-see attraction in downtown Lake Oswego is the Oswego Heritage Council. This organization is dedicated to preserving the history and culture of the city, and their museum is a great place to learn about the area’s past. I was particularly interested in the exhibit about the early settlers of the area, and the artifacts on display were fascinating.

Of course, no visit to downtown Lake Oswego would be complete without a stroll along the lake. The lake is beautiful, with a paved path that winds around the shore, providing excellent views of the water and the surrounding area. I also enjoyed a picnic on the grassy area nearby, it was the perfect way to relax and enjoy the scenery. Also, don’t forget to check out George Rogers Park while you are in the area.

Overall, my visit to downtown Lake Oswego was a wonderful experience. The area is full of history and culture, and there is something for everyone to enjoy. I would definitely recommend a visit to anyone looking for a charming and unique destination.
