The Portland Saturday Market, an open-air showcase of local crafts and flavors, echoes the state's creative pulse.


Oregon isn't just a place you see; it's a place you do. With a landscape as varied as its activities, you can hike volcanic trails, paddle in crystalline lakes, or cruise along breathtaking coasts. The state's outdoors are vast and inviting, offering everything from coastal hikes to desert camping, all amidst a backdrop of stunning natural diversity.


Delve into Oregon's rich heritage and innovative spirit.

This is a land of natural wonders, where beauty unfolds in every direction, from windswept beaches and verdant forests to dramatic valleys and towering peaks.
