attractive Oregon Attractions
The word “attractions” brings to mind carnival rides, boardwalks and amusement parks. We have carnivals but we also enjoy rides in dune buggies, on motorcycles and kite boards and aboard fishing vessels searching for salmon, tuna and crab.
We have a wonderful boardwalk, but also enjoy art walks and walks across ancient fossil beds and old growth forests, not to mention walking in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark. And while amusements are fun, we like to think of our entire state as one big amusement park. Only with tastier food.
