Sample text

Cities Portland is Oregon’s only major metropolitan area, but the city, with its compact downtown, extensive streetcar and light-rail network, and vibrant outlying neighborhoods, is frequently held up as a model of livability. In central Oregon, Bend has become a wealthy boomtown surrounded by natural attractions. In the southern Oregon city of Ashland, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival takes center stage, while in Hood River, the lively downtown is full of outdoors types who come for the windsurfing and kiteboarding.

They don’t. Why, then, is this state wedged between California and Washington such a popular destination? It could be for the same reasons that early pioneers were willing to walk all the way across the continent to get here—the summers. The seductiveness of summer in Oregon is impossible to resist. Summer is a time of bounty, easily seen at farmers markets around the state and on the menus of restaurants that emphasize fresh, local, and organic cuisine. Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries ripen on Willamette Valley farms.

From almost anywhere in Oregon, it’s possible to look up and see green forests and snow-capped mountains, and a drive of less than 2 hours from any Willamette Valley city will get you to the mountains or the Pacific Ocean’s beaches. But what about all that rain? Well, Oregonians don’t let the weather stand between them and the outdoors. The temptation is too great to head for the mountains, the river, or the beach––no matter the forecast. Consequently, life in Oregon’s cities tends to revolve less around cultural venues and shopping than around parks, gardens, waterfronts, rivers, mountains, and beaches.
