Oregon Travel Guide Explore the dramatic coast or venture inland.

Discover Oregon

Oregon is a truly unique blend with cities that are fiercely local, celebrating the state’s huge range of organic produce, pioneer culture and historical heritage with thousands of festivals, and a firm grip on growing for a more wide-spread future with new software startups alongside another fine pint of micro-brew cropping up on every street corner. Read more about how Oregon manages to be rich with the culture and cuisine options of a cosmopolitan center yet comfortable and cozy like a small town.

In the great outdoors too you’ll find Oregon’s local pride at work, with the Oregon Coast Bike Route a rite of passage for many a cyclist. The Oregon Coast Trail along with many bays and estuaries provides plenty of opportunity to explore the coastline by kayak or foot, and further inland you’ll find alpine mountains and deep river canyons. Read more about how the beautiful Coastal Oregon remains breathtakingly serene and unblemished by upscale tourist infrastructure.
