head on out Getting Around Oregon

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 Alert: Summers in Oregon deliver beautiful weather, long days and, occasionally, wildfires. The safety of Oregon residents and visitors is our highest priority. Before venturing out, we recommend checking out the Oregon Department of Forestry’s website for the latest updates and conditions: http://wildfireoregondeptofforestry.blogspot.com/

We encourage you to watch Governor Kitzhaber’s short public service announcements about fire safety: Campfire Safety and Oregon’s Dry Climate.
