Discover Oregon

  • Oregon has 14 National Historic Districts and four National Historic Trails.
  • The Historic Columbia River Highway is the first scenic highway in the U.S. and is a National Historic Landmark.
  • Oregon has more than 7,000 bridges, including 53 covered bridges.
  • Nine historic lighthouses and one light ship dot the Oregon Coast.
  • Oregon is home to 10 Native American tribes.

Oregon is a state of contrasts, with snow-dusted mountains, dramatic river canyons, lush valleys, rugged coast, arid plains and fertile fields. In fact, Oregon offers some example of every geographic terrain on the planet within its borders.

  • The highest elevation point is Mt. Hood at 11,239 feet, and the lowest is at sea level.
  • There are more than 6,000 lakes and 112,000 miles of rivers and streams.
  • Oregon contains more than 5,900 registered campsites along with 230 state parks and 13 national forests.
  • Nearly half of Oregon’s total area is forested – close to 30 million acres.
  • There are 16 known hot springs in Oregon.
  • Summer - Every season holds special reasons to visit Oregon. The warm summers invite locals and visitors to spend time outdoors. There is no excuse to stay inside. With many beer gardens, bistros, open- air theaters and numerous festivals, Summer is truly a marvelous time in Oregon.
  • Fall - Fall is harvest season and festivities throughout the state celebrate the bounty that Oregon’s fertile lands and rivers yield. This season also brings an explosion of color to Oregon’s many hardwood forests as leaves take on bright hues of red and yellow.
  • Winter - Oregon winters are mild with little or no snow in lower elevations. But the mountain ranges see plenty of snow, providing an excellent foundation for downhill skiing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.
  • Spring - Spring finds Oregon in bloom. Rivers and lakes swell with snowmelt. Cherry trees blossom. Native flowers and plants create a sea of vibrant colors and fill.
