  Travel Oregon
Vacationing in Oregon is traditionally more of an impromptu affair. This site is designed to give you your bearings, but we encourage you to approach Oregon the way Oregonians do, with a sense of humor and adventure. For the most authentic Oregon experience, be kind to the environment when you visit.

  State of Oregon [ Government ]

  City of Salem [ Government ]   -   State Capital
See also  Salem Oregon Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Located in the fertile Willamette Valley, the Salem area is fortunate to have an array of gardens. Tulip, rose, iris, peony and dahlia farms and gardens along with the 80-acre Oregon Garden are just a few of spectacular "must see" sites of the region. Salem looks forward to your visit!

  Coast of Oregon
Oregon's nearly 400 miles of beaches and dunes are all open to the public, offering endless vacation possibilities. Grand resorts, family-friendly hotels, cozy bed and breakfasts, and full service campgrounds are available all along the Coast. Mild temperatures, dramatic scenery and a wide range of recreational activities make this one of the state's most popular regions.
There are many recreational opportunities from fishing, cycling, flying a kite on the beach, scuba diving, hiking through old-growth forests, windsurfing and surfing, beachcombing, whale and bird watching... the list is endless. There are also many coast attractions including aquariums, art galleries, theaters and festivals, parades and poetry readings. Many lighthouses dot the Oregon coast and you'll find hundreds of parks to explore. See Visit the Oregon Coast.
  Eastern Oregon   -   Adventure awaits you.
Eastern Oregon is a place of awesome beauty - from Hells Canyon's wildest rapids to the glimmering peaks of the Wallowas, from the rolling wheat fields of the Columbia River Plateau to the rugged breaks of Steens Mountain. The skies are wide and blue, and beautiful scenery unfolds around every bend in the road.
Miles and miles of open road punctuated by small towns with big personalities are waiting to be discovered. Stand in the ruts left by thousands of wagons headed west along the Oregon Trail. Help modern day cowboys round up cattle. Look for fossils in John Day and be sure to stop in at the major interpretive centers throughout the region offering visitors a chance to gain a better understanding of Oregon's history through the eyes of its Native peoples. This is a region for exploration and adventure, where visitors can paint their own experience in a watercolor landscape of distant purple mountains and the muted tones of the desert. See Eastern Oregon Visitor's Association
  Mount Hood / Columbia River Gorge
Mt. Hood, the tallest of Oregon's Cascade peaks, stands watch over the awe-inspiring Columbia River Gorge from a height of ll,239 ft.. The often-photographed glacier-glazed peak is home to year-round skiing and snowboarding. Run-off from its volcanic slopes enriches soil in the valleys below, which are famous for their production of pears, peaches, cherries, apricots and apples. One of the largest concentrations of high waterfalls in the nation spills forth from the cliffs and ledges that wall in the mighty Columbia River to create the nation's only national scenic area. See Clackamas County is Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory.
  Southern Oregon
Long recognized by the Hollywood set as the perfect getaway, Southern Oregon offers visitors a well -balanced mix of natural and cultural wonders. History buffs will find a wide variety of historical sites and points of interest across the region. Whitewater enthusiasts and anglers can seek endless adventure on the Rogue, Klamath and Umpqua rivers, and theater aficionados flock to Ashland every year for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Medford is home to both Harry and David's Country Village and the Jackson & Perkins Rose Garden. See Southern Oregon Visitors Association.
  Willamette Valley
Flanked by the Coast Range and the Cascades, the valley takes its name from the river that flows through it. Historic cities and towns, settled more than a hundred years ago by emigrants from all over the world, are found throughout the region, but the area is perhaps best known for its diverse agriculture, which includes all kinds of vegetables, fruits, flowers, herbs, nuts, hops, and Christmas trees. See Oregon Wine Country.
