5 Reasons to Love Oregon

Oregon is a magical place that's so beautiful it's almost indescribable. 

Here are 5 reasons (and lots of photos) to fall in love with Oregon.

1. Beaches

The beautiful grays, blues and greens on the Oregon coast seem utterly unique to the Pacific Northwest. The peaceful and calming landscapes and seascapes instantly relax you in the salty fresh ocean air.

2. Mountains

The famous Ring of Fire includes many active volcanoes, snow-covered mountaintops, and skiing galore. This is where the mountains are calling you from.

3. Forests

Fecant untouched forests full of flora and fauna, complete with moss and ferns seemingly straight out of the Jurassic era. The varied and vibrant colors of green dance among the land. Breathing in the fresh oxygenated air invigorates you.

4. Rivers

Clean, crisp and cool rivers to wade and swim in. And, sometimes, to float down innertubes in.

Beautiful, striking buildings from the turn of the century, fantastic gothic bridges and beautiful old lighthouses a plenty to satisfy any art, culture or history buff.
