Oregon boasts an abundance of natural beauty – from the rugged coast stretching 363 miles, volcanic mountains, roaring waterfalls, high alpine lakes and 55 rivers, it’s an outdoor lover’s paradise. Whether it’s skiing, biking, hiking, fishing or paddling, there is no shortage of adventures to be had in the state.
From Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the U.S., to Hell’s Canyon, the largest river gorge in North America, to volcanic Mt. Hood, there are plenty of natural wonders to visit.
There’s also plenty of adventures of the culinary kind. Oregon takes craft beer seriously with over 300 breweries to try. And the state is also known for a robust wine scene in the Willamette Valley, which spans over 100 miles and offers over 900 wineries. Oregon is blessed with some of the most diverse and beautiful wine-growing landscapes in the world. While the state is most known for Pinot Noir, over 100 varieties of grapes are grown in the Valley. Find fresh produce, flowers, ciders and wine on the Fruit Loop, a scenic 35-mile loop in the Hood River Valley.
