I am looking to do a trek across Oregon to visit all the historical landmarks. What places are a must see?
I’d start in Baker City and move west! Good start for historical landmarks: Flickr group.

Jacksonville is a National Historic Landmark, and a wonderful place to visit. This quaint town has fabulous shops, restaurants, historic cemetery, trails and a great feel! There are more than 100 homes on the National Historic Register, and you can take audio, trolley and segway tours to check it all out!
The Oregon Caves Chateau in Cave Junction
From Baker City, follow the Barlow Road to the Philip Foster Farm. Hands-on activities for the kids. Real history for the rest of us. Great place to bring the grandchildren! Check out the hours on their website before you go.

- We only have about 9 days to spend in Oregon. We enjoy the outdoors and can handle full days. Any recommendations as to where to focus our trip to get the most out of our limited time? Also, what is the best summer month to visit?
- I’m going to Crater Lake the beginning of July. What can I expect for weather? We will be there two days but in Oregon for two weeks. What else are must-sees in the area between there and Portland, or Portland and Seattle? We like the outdoors.
