Plan For Vacation This Year

Published: January 11, 2018

Come to Oregon

It just so happens that January 30th is "National Plan for Vacation Day." And if you've been thinking about a visit the Eugene area in Oregon - it is time to put your vacation dreams into action.

Eugene, Cascades & Coast Adventures in Oregon

Expedia selected Eugene one of the top 17 places to visit in 2017. And we agree - from here you can do just about anything from the Oregon Coast to the Cascade Mountains.

Additionally, the Willamette Valley was awarded the 2016 Wine Region of the Year by Wine Enthusiast magazine. Pick up a Pinot Bingo card and play for prizes as you taste your way through Oregon Wine Country.

Cottage Grove is said to be the Covered Bridge Capital of the West.

In the Cascades, Oakridge is the unofficial Mountain Biking Capital of the Northwest. 

And Florence, on the Oregon Coast, features North America's largest coastal sand dunes and America's largest sea cave - home to Steller sea lions!
