Miles of bike paths wind through the communities. Urban centers are adjacent beautiful parks and waterways. Spend the morning hiking in the Cascades and that same day watch the sunset while strolling along the ocean beach. Unique sports like sandboarding and tree climbing complement a day of fishing or disc golf.

The heart and soul of Oregon is its food. Remarkable craft beer and world renowned pinot wines are poured alongside fresh and diverse culinary offerings. Truly a banquet for the senses, whether its crab or salmon plucked from local waters or a sizzling cut of grass-fed beef topped with Oregon's own truffles.

Raft mighty rivers, mountain bike challenging single track, ski down powdery slopes or glide across glassy lakes. Fly above the coastline in helicopter or hike portions of the Pacific Crest Trail across shining black lava fields.
