    Besides 363 miles of pristine public beaches, high-desert country, painted hills and wine-producing valleys, Oregon is home to North America’s deepest river gorge - Hells Canyon, the country's deepest lake - Crater Lake, and the world’s second-most-climbed mountain - Mt. Hood, which also happens to host North America’s only year-round ski season.

    Cowboy adventures, whitewater rafting, quiet mountain retreats – Central Oregon has it all. The region's geological history, marked by explosive volcanic activity, is showcased at several parks, and its rich cultural history is on display at the High Desert Museum in Bend. The spirit of the West is alive and well in the high desert of Eastern Oregon, where snow-capped mountains, dusty plains and jagged red rocks look down on rolling hills of sage, wild rivers and fertile wheat fields.

    Whatever your passion, Oregon’s natural and scenic variety – coast, mountains, rivers, high desert, plains, forests and valleys – lends equally to exhilarating outdoor adventure or tranquil exploration. Experience Oregon’s hidden travel gems for yourself – award-winning golf courses, culinary masterminds, world-class spas and tucked-away luxury properties, all in the midst of wide open beaches, jaw-dropping waterfalls, lush forests and amazing mountain peaks. Oregon has more scenic byways and tour routes than any other state. It also boasts no sales tax and plenty of shopping opportunities so what are you waiting for?
