stimulated. From the mountains to the valleys, and to the coastal regions there is something for everyone. For those who like a more fast-paced
lifestyle, there are numerous things to do in the cities. If one is interested in arts and culture, they can find theaters and plays, and musical
temptations to quench their artistic appetite.
When the weather is right, the Oregon Coast is well-known for its oceanic visuals. Whether visiting the historic Newport shopping district or dropping
into Moe's for some Clam Chowder, there are countless things one can enjoy in Western Oregon.
If snow laden mountains tickle your fancy, there is always room for snowboarding and skiing at Mt. Hood and Mt. Bachelor. These spectacular mountains
in the Cascade Range are famous for their scenic beauty, snow quality, and overall ambience. Timberline Lodge is a located south of Mount Hood and is
a popular historic landmark. The powdery backcountry is great for snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. When the clouds release their alpine nectar,
it is open season for all winter athletes.
If you prefer bright sunshine and warmer weather then Eastern Oregon is just the place for you. Here one can indulge in cold crisp sunny walks and
follow it up by some short trips over the long and dusty hiking and biking trails. Bend, central Oregon's largest city was rated one of the best
places to raise a family in all of the United States. Today, Bend is known as a gateway to many outdoor sports like hiking, mountain biking,
fishing and white-water rafting.
Oregon is one of the most amazing of the United States because one can start in the middle of the state and go in any direction and they will find
new adventure each and every time.
