What’s New in Oregon 2017

February 1, 2017 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

Cheers to 2017! It’s winter in Oregon,and we understand that one’s natural inclination might be to cozy up in front of a fireplace with a glass of “best-in-the-world” Willamette Valley pinot noir and a good book — which we’d highly recommend.

But, it’s also a great time to take advantage of the great outdoors, and we have aplenty! From skiing to hiking, from fat biking to storm watching on The People’s Coast, we’ve got loads of adventures, no matter what Mother Nature sends your way. And don’t forget about the mouthwatering food that makes Oregon a standout among culinary enthusiasts. Sure, you may have vowed to kick off 2017 with a cleanse…but now it’s time to resolve to get your fill of truffle mac n’ cheese. After all, you made it through 2016 and you’ve earned it.  And, you deserve your fill of good story ideas, which is what we’re here for.

Find the Weather You Want: The Oregon Weather Compass

Yes, it rains in Oregon. But what you might not know is that it’s often sunny here, too — you just have to know where to go. The same applies to snow, because all that wet stuff turns into white stuff if you’re up on Mt. Hood or Mt. Bachelor or any of our other dormant volcanoes with ski resorts perched on top. That’s why Travel Oregon created the Oregon Weather Compass. It’s the first-ever mobile site that helps point local and visiting explorers to the weather they’re looking for—be it sun, snow or even rain. Just load the mobile site onto your smartphone and follow one of three icons that tell you in real time where you can find the weather you’re seeking, along with driving directions and fun things you can do once you’re there. Oregon has all kinds of weather.  Find the one you like best.
