Oregon — With 30 million acres of forest, nearly half the state of Oregon is covered by wilderness. Add to that moderate temperatures and a noticeable lack of major roads (the state has only two highways), and Oregon feels like a breath of fresh air. Visitors come to explore the extreme geological diversity, from Sahara-like sand dune beaches to mountainous outposts covered in Evergreens. Outdoor activities run the gamut - hiking, fishing, kayaking, camping, spelunking, swimming, sunbathing…not to mention leaf-peeping at the beautiful foliage in fall and skiing and snowboarding the snowcapped mountains in the winter. City-folk will find the eco-friendly bustle of Portland fulfilling, with its art scene, funky boutiques, and enough culinary geniuses to make Portland-native James Beard proud. See our Portland Travel Guide.

Why Go

For the great outdoors: Evergreen forests, rugged coastline, caves, covered bridges, and vineyards.
