Places to Visit in Oregon

Oregon has one of the most diverse landscapes, being one of the most interesting state, from a geographical point of view, of the 50 states of the Union. It is known for its dense forests composed of coniferous species, rare and very tall, and its coastal regions of the Pacific Ocean. Its semi-arid regions of very poor lands, prairies and semi-deserts are less known and are covering nearly half of the state in the eastern and north-central part of it. In terms of skiing, Oregon is one of the very few places in the northern hemisphere where the ski-lift service is always open, regardless of the season. There are a lot of places to visit in Oregon.

The shoreline in Beaver State interspersed with large boulders has 582 km of perfection, with steep sandstones, that are carved by the ocean, which extend and align with the forest area (two mountain chains parallel with the Pacific Coast), which shelters farmlands and picturesque towns.

Oregon Shakespeare Festival is one of the best places to visit in Oregon. Founded in 1935, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) is among the oldest and professional non-profit theaters in the nation. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival has been honored with a Tony Award. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival presents an eight-and-a-half-month season of eleven plays each year: 4 plays are by Shakespeare and 7 plays are by various classic and contemporary writers. The plays and other numerous ancillary activities are presented in 3 theaters, engaging in an extensive program of theater education. With a budget of over $ 26 million, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival plays over 780 performances annually, attended by an audience of around 400,000 people.

The caldera, with a width of 9.5 km that is located in Crater Lake, was created more than 7,000 years ago as a result of the catastrophic explosions that caused the collapse and flooding of a volcano. Today it represents the deepest lake in the United States of America (it is 589 meters deep) and is the centerpiece of the Oregon National Par. Thus, it is definitely one of the places to visit in Oregon. Having a surface of 54 km², the lake is at an average altitude of 2,133 meters, offering stunning views to drivers, cyclists and hikers. An equally fantastic view is the calm water and the miniature volcano view admired by people on boat tours. For a more detailed exploration of the Cascade Range area, choose Legacy Scenic Byway Route that is 225 km. It starts from the park and heads to southern Klamath Falls, near the California border. Crater Lake Lodge was started in 1909, but never completed properly due to budgetary constraints. Renovated and re-designed in 1995, with historical detail and rustic design, Crater Lake Lodge is now a jewel among the little cabins in the park.
