Oregon has hot high desert country to the east, balmy coast to the west, and mountains, rivers and forests in between. Not to mention many great towns on your must-see list. You’ve got a lot of ground to cover, and we are here to help you figure out how to get around.
Travel Alerts: Drought & Wildfires: Summers in Oregon deliver beautiful weather, long days and, occasionally, droughts and wildfires. The safety of Oregon residents and visitors is our highest priority. Before venturing out, we recommend checking these resources for the most up-to-date information on traveling throughout the state: Northwest Interagency Coordination Center, the Oregon Department of Forestry, Oregon Smoke Information and TripCheck. Please leave Oregon as beautiful as you found it and obey all campfire and smoking restrictions.
