Travel Hacks to Oregon
What kind of an Oregon trip are you looking for?
For starters, you need to pick a few activities that are on your mind, since that will decide which part of the state you’ll be heading to. Having said that, it doesn’t matter if all you want to do is nothing, since a vacation in Oregon can be a complete leisure/pleasure trip as well.
What is the best time to be there?
Any time is a good time to be in Oregon, as most of the state experiences mild winters and dry summers. The western third of the state sees heavy rainfall during the winters owing to its proximity to the ocean. So, if you’re planning a Pacific coastline road trip, schedule your trip in the summer. The deserts of central Oregon sees visitors both in the summer and winter as well, bringing trekkers and skiers in the respective seasons. If a visit to the Willamette Valley is on the agenda, the summer season would be perfect to visit the wineries in the region. Also, October would be a great time to visit if you’re interested in the grape harvesting season.
What is the best means of transport to get around?
Most tourists coming here love to indulge in outdoor activities that the state is famous for. The best means to travel within the state would be by car, which makes way for flexible traveling, whether you wish to visit the national parks, hit the beach, or check out the wineries. Also, this is the only way to access the more remote regions of the state and spend your time at leisure. Car rentals in the state are fairly abundant, and fit most budgets. Keep in mind, however, that there are several remote areas, especially in the eastern part of the state where you’ll have trouble finding a gas station, so be vigilant about the gasoline levels in your car.
What can we look forward to experience?
The wineries and cuisine of Oregon have always been a tourist magnet. The mild weather yields some excellent natural produce, including berries and mushrooms. The locally-raised meats, along with seafood is what puts this state on the culinary map. The state is also home to several wineries, producing world-renowned Pinot Noirs.
