Oregon is filled with Brewery’s every where I look I see a new one. Small Restaurant & Brewery’s brew some of the best beer you can get anywhere, and they also make some of the best food too. There is just a special something that comes out of a kitchen when it brews it own beer. In Corvallis Oregon its worth a stop to eat at Block 15. This casual pub is right off of the campus of Oregon State University and is a very popular stop for college students. At anytime throughout the year you can find 12 beers on tap and an additional 2 during peak times. There is a large selection standard beers like Glo, Golden Ale, Ridgeback Red, Alpha IPA, Aboriginale, Nebula, Naked Oat Stout, Fruit Ale, Wandelpad, and Print Master’s Pale Ale. There is also a selection of Specialty and seasonal brews that you can see anytime of the year like Hatter’s Riddle, Summer Knights, Cask Ale, tropical Storm, Prenup, Honey Wit, or Blockhead. The selection of beers is ever changing with a new brew going on tap every one to two weeks. On the pub side there is a large selection of great food. Perhaps the most popular item on the menu is the “Hand-Spanked Burgers” these burgers are made by hand from never frozen beef and cooked to a delicious perfection. Block 15 is a great place to take friends for a quick bite or sit down and enjoy a few rounds of great beer.

I can’t remember the last time I took the family down to the pubic pool. That could be because the public pool where I live is lame and nothing like the pools in Corvallis. In Corvallis you can enjoy the Osborn Aquatic Center from March to September. The Aquatic Center sports four pools two inside and two outside. Inside the pools are temperature controlled and kept at 83degree F. The largest of the two pools is an Olympic sized 50 meter pool, the pool is 165 feet long and 65 feet longer and hold 485,000 gallons of water. If you don’t understand what those numbers means is that it’s a huge pool. The pool has many great features one of the most notable is the movable bulkhead. The bulkhead allows the pool to be cut in half making it two 25 meter runs instead of the longer 50. The pool has a deep end at 13 feet that has 2 diving boards a 1 meter and 3 meter board, zipline, slide, and even a rope swing. In the shallow end you can find inflatable logs, mats, and tubes to sit and relax with. The second indoor pool is smaller bring 40 by 22 feet and only being 4 and a half feet deep. Outside are two more cool pools the smaller is a lap pool much like the large pool inside however it is only 82x 42 feet. The larger outdoor pool is much like a small water park with large colorful sides that young kids will love. The pool is deepest at 3 and a half feet so its great for the young kids. Beside the large slides it has a free formed lazy river on the size that is pump driven. The pool is designed for water fun in mind and there are numerous water cannons and small slides that are great for young kids, be sure to keep an eye on your kids because it can be crowned during the summer.
