Instead of Hurricane Sandy

Get your mind off of Hurricane Sandy by escaping to one of these destinations

Corvallis, Oregon

Supposedly even safer than Boise, Corvallis comes with the added bonus of being virtually within walking distance (okay, it’s a long walk) of some of the greatest vineyards in North America.

Travel 50 miles directly north up Route 99 West and you’ll find yourself in McMinnville, the heart of the Willamette Valley. Instead of losing a fight for your seat and free Wi-Fi at Starbucks, you could be tasting great Pinot Noir and enjoying the bounty of Oregon’s active farm scene. The weather’s just a bit warmer than it is here in New York City but as far as I know, there are no lines at the gas stations. In all honesty, I wouldn’t even need gas because I’d be driving a Volt and farming biodynamic tobacco if I was already living there.
