As college students with busy lives we can often forget to take breaks, to simply stop, relax, and reflect. If you are looking for a place to escape for some wonderful relaxation, quiet time, and bliss then look no further than the downtown boardwalk of Corvallis. Right off of 1st street lies a boardwalk that extends down 10 blocks. This is a great place to clear your mind, relax, and enjoy the wonderful nature that Corvallis has to offer. As you walk down the boardwalk on one side you will discover many diverse local restaurants such as Great Harvest Bread Co., Sada Sushi, and Riverview Mongolian Grill, while on the other side you hear the peaceful sound of the Willamette River. The boardwalk is great place to go during lunch or dinnertime to grab a bite to eat and walk alongside the river. Whether you’re looking for a good place to go for a date night, break from school/work, or simply want some quite time, check out this hidden gem that is bound to open your eyes to the beauty within Corvallis just minutes away from campus.
