OUR  FAVORITE THINGS  TO DO IN  OREGON

Don’t miss a chance to dive into the COLD waters of the crater – the deepest lake in the US. After you dry off, drive the 33-mile scenic rim with stunning views.

CRATER LAKE NATIONAL PARK

COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE

It’s the perfect place for chasing waterfalls. Ninety major waterfalls can be found in this 80-mile area, including the famous and beloved Multnomah Falls.

PAULINA LAKE HOT SPRINGS

It’s not fancy but sweeping views of the lake while soaking in the mineral water will certainly delight. Plan on a 1-mile hike to the hot springs.

STEELHEAD FALLS

This waterfall hike is short, and the falls are unmatched. The best part? You can jump from the cliffs to the base of the falls. The climb back up is not easy, but worth it!

It’s one of the most popular warm weather activities in Bend. The best location is between the Old Mill District and Drake Park.

TUBE DESCHUTES RIVER

ASTORIA

This area has been a favorite for multiple generations — even before The Goonies was filmed here. Considered one of the best art towns in the US.

Stunning and unique rock formations formed by ash from volcanic explosions millions of years ago make the perfect rock climbing oasis.

SMITH ROCK STATE PARK

CRABBING IN WALDPORT

Waldport is the nation’s Dungeness Crab Capital. With a plethora of crabs in the water and a free crabbing dock open to the public, catching dinner here is almost too easy.

FROOT LOOP TRAIL

The Hood River Froot Loop is a trail of farm stands, orchards, vineyards, and more along a 35-mile loop near Mount Hood. Sample wines and eat your way thru.

PROXY FALLS

Bring the kids on this 1.5-mile hike loop with a stunning reward, as this waterfall drops more than 200 feet in the Cascade Mountains.
