5 Places to Visit in Oregon in Your New Car


Here are 5 Places to Visit in Oregon in Your New Car


The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area

The Columbia River is quite a site to see. This awesome waterway marks the Oregon-Washington state border, and is an absolutely gorgeous drive on a beautiful day. Winter warning: These roads can be quite treacherous as temperatures fall, so if you're traveling in the winter, always check to make sure the roads are open before you head out.


Sauvie Island

Suavie Island is the largest island in the Columbia River, and one of the largest in the U.S. Located about 10 miles north of Portland, there are a ton of things to do there! From fishing and hiking to boating and bird-watching, there's something fun for everyone.


Portland Japanese Garden

Over five acres of wooded land surrounded by an additional five acres of protected forest, the Portland Japanese Garden has gorgeous landscapes and winding pathways where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll and get lost in your thoughts. The garden has a wide variety of trees, plants, and flowers bloom year round so there is always something to see.


Willamette Valley

With so much to do, you could spend hours (and days!) seeing all the Willamette Valley has to offer! From the coast range to the valley, you'll find shopping with lots of handcrafted, local artisan shops, delicious one-of-a-kind places to dine, and of course…WINE! The valley wine tours are some of the best, so if you have yourself a designated driver, you'll have lots of places to visit.
