Oregon Wine Country

The rugged, emerald terrain of Oregon’s coast has allured generations of travelers in search of mystery. Inland, the sprawling, multi-hued deserts and serene lakes have captivated visitors for centuries. There’s a reason people have been drawn to Oregon, since the first pioneers decided to settle: an inescapable sense of wonder.

TOP TIPS FOR OREGON

  1. All of Oregon is on PST, with the exception of the tiny, southeastern corner, which relies on MST.

  2. Rent a car, but stay alert on the winding coastal roads - especially in the colder months.

  3. For a truly remote getaway, an entire vacation can be planned around the Southwest's Malheur Lake.

When to Go

Summer is peak season, and reservations are invariably required in the tourist centers. From October to May, however, a spontaneous traveler can feel comfortable just winging it.
