Everyone’s heard of oh-so-trendy Portland but there’s so much more to Oregon, especially if you love the outdoors. 

From river-rafting and snowshoeing, to cycling and hiking, the views and terrain in Oregon are unreal. Get an idea of this state’s natural majesty at Crater Lake, the deepest in America. There’s mountains, farmlands, beaches and forests—with a healthy dash of progressive, fun cities mixed in. If you prefer to hang out inside, there’s still heaps to do in Oregon, including museums, theatres, craft breweries and renowned restaurants. Just don’t forget that the state capital is not Portland, it’s Salem!
