Vacation in Oregon’s Oceans, Mountains and Forests

Oregon offers the best of many worlds, with Pacific Ocean beaches, mountains, forests and the high desert all within a day’s drive. You will find comfortable accommodations to suit your needs whether you prefer a beachfront cottage, a forest cabin or an urban condo. Cozy up to the fireplace with cable TV and internet access to watch an ocean storm roll in, or enjoy a sunny picnic on the deck of your vacation home.

Water Wonders

Oregon is home to many spectacular waterfalls and a pristine shoreline of ocean beaches. Beachcombing, digging for clams and leisurely walks along the beach are treasured pastimes. Landmark waterfalls include the Columbia River Gorge and Silver Falls State Park, where many waterfalls crash through the trees to fill pristine pools.

Multnomah Falls

Multnomah Falls is the most famous waterfall in Oregon with a jaw-dropping 620 feet of falling water. This spectacular natural site is enhanced by a historic viewing bridge over the water and a historic lodge at the base of the falls.

Historical Sites

As the end of the Oregon Trail and the route of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, Oregon offers many unique historical sites that provide a glimpse into the past. Fort Stevens near Astoria is a former military fort that guarded the mouth of the Columbia River during wartime, including World War II.

The Oregon Trail

Portions of the Oregon Trail can be viewed with wagon ruts still visible after nearly 200 years. Guided tours are available, and you can explore the history of the trail at the End of the Oregon Trail Museum in Oregon City. Known as a rest stop at the end of the Oregon Trail, the Philip Foster Farm in Eagle Creek has been preserved as a museum.

Dining and Shopping

Dining and shopping is plentiful in Oregon - especially in its largest city, Portland. Portland offers a contemporary blend of history and modern development with a strong focus on food and the arts. Shopping ranges from high-end boutiques to the crafter’s marketplace at the Saturday Market on the Portland waterfront. Many restaurants have won culinary acclaim or have been featured in magazines or on television. Fresh local foods grown in the area’s fertile soils are emphasized along with local wines and artisan foods.

Weather

Oregon’s weather is generally moderate, but it varies widely across the state. Western Oregon is known for its rainfall, and winters are typically gray and wet. Snow is possible during this time of the year, however. Eastern Oregon is much colder and receives snow and sunshine rather than rain. Summers are warm and dry for all parts of the state with low humidity and comfortable temperatures. The Pacific coastline rarely experiences hot or cold temperatures, so it is a nice escape if you prefer consistent, cool temperatures all year long.

How to Get There

Portland, Oregon boasts an international airport, so it is easy to travel to Oregon from any part of the world. Private car travel is ideal so you can stop at roadside landmarks and take in the beautiful views during your drive. Car rental options are plentiful in the major cities, including Portland, Salem, Eugene and Bend. Options for car rental and other transportation are very limited along the coast. Amtrak trains serve much of Oregon, and much of the state can be traveled by bicycle with cities that offer efficient bicycle routes for urban travel.
