The Ultimate Oregon Travel Guide
Oregon: Beautiful National Parks, gorgeous waterfalls, stunning State Parks, beaches, beautiful coastline, and so much more to do and see in Oregon! Here is my Oregon travel guide outlining major Oregon attractions!
To make it easy for you to navigate the content, I have organized my Oregon travel guide into two sections. (1) A brief introduction to Washington, a little history, some geography, commute, and weather. (2) Major Oregon attractions, if you wish, you can skip the introduction and move on to the next section, Oregon Attractions.
History: Oregon was officially admitted to the union as a state on February 14th, 1859, this region was once jointly occupied by the US and Great Britain. It’s called the Beaver State due to the association of beavers with the early history of Oregon. And because of the admirable qualities of intelligence associated with this animal. Oregon grows about 99 percent of all hazelnuts produced in the US and is also the nation’s leading producer of Christmas trees.
Geography: The Colombia River broadly defines Oregon’s border with Washington State in the north; the Snake River forms a section of its state line with Idaho in the east, and the 42nd parallel north defines the borders with California and Nevada in the south. Oregon is home to Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the US. The state is also home to deep, dense forests, volcanic peaks, valleys, plateaus, and a rugged coastline.
Flight: Oregon is huge; based on your destination, you can fly to one of these airports: Portland International Airport (PDX), Klamath Falls International Airport (LMT), or Eugene Airport (EUG), with PDX – Portland being the most popular and economical.
Drive: If you live in any of the neighboring states, you could drive to Oregon.
Train: Amtrak provides three rail service in Oregon – Amtrak Cascades (Vancouver, BC – Seattle – Tacoma – Portland – Salem – Eugene), Empire Builder (Chicago – St. Paul/Minneapolis – Spokane – Portland/Seattle), and Coast Starlight (Seattle – Portland – Sacramento – Los Angeles).
