R & R DRIVE IN For the best burger, milkshake, steak dinner, or fajitas to be found, you must stop in at R&R Drive In. “We’re a family-owned business and we’ve been in this spot for 21 years,” said co-owner Jennifer Zollman. “What that means is that this business is important to us because it’s part of this community.” The drive in offers many food options including burgers, sirloin- and -ribeye dinners, salads, shakes, breakfast burritos, and much, much more. “We have soft-serve ice cream that we turn into 31 different milkshake flavors including chocolate and Oreo, but the local children go for the ones made out of candy,” added Zollman. R&R serves up anything that its customers request and its burger combinations are too numerous to mention. “One of our most popular is the R&R Special that is a super patty and comes with a large order of fries and a milkshake.” R&R n I e v i r D 1-432-9000 54 R. 97846 t.

Housed in the former Natatorium are 33,000 square feet of permanent and changing exhibits to tell the stories of the real people and businesses that developed the region following the discovery of gold in the mountains near the Oregon Trail. The Heritage Museum is home to the world renowned Cavin-Warfel rock collection, one of the largest and finest in the Western United States. The private collection was amassed by two Baker City sisters in the 1930s and was their hobby for 45 years. In 1983 the entire 18 ton collection was donated to the museum. The collection of rocks, fossils and minerals also includes 2,000 agate, picture jasper and cabochons representing 35 years of collecting and outstanding lapidary work by Billy Wyatt. Those who have written reviews after visiting the museum describe it in one word: “fantastic.” The Heritage Museum, formerly the Oregon Trail Regional Museum, displays and interprets the rich history of the region. Nowhere is there a more colorful story to tell about how the West was developed. It is a story about courage. It is a story about gold. It is a story about industries such as transportation, agriculture and timber. Interesting Chinese culture and WWW.OREGONTRAVELCOUNCIL.COM wildlife exhibits contribute to filling the 33,000 square foot building. Whether you spend an hour or spend the day touring the museum, you will come away with an appreciation of the region and the people who settled in it.
