With a seaside view of the Pacific Ocean and volcanoes strewn throughout the Cascade Range, Oregon is full of natural wonders. It's not just nature, though, that drives people to buy plane tickets to Oregon. The state has a rich history that includes its original inhabitants showing up 15,000 years ago and becoming a state in 1859. Today, there's plenty to keep you preoccupied on your vacation to the Beaver State.
The warmer summer months draw droves of tourists to Oregon, and if you'd like to enjoy the state around the same time, you'll have lots of options. The Portland Rose Festival, for instance, is held in June and has cumulatively drawn 2 million visitors over its history. If you're staying at one of the hotels in Portland Oregon but want to see some more of the state, you can also enjoy June's Midsummer Scandinavian Festival in Astoria, a two hour drive away. If it's cheap flights to Oregon you're looking for, show up between October and May. Even though there are fewer tourists around, there's still plenty for you to enjoy. These events include the Portland Greek Festival in October, the Chocolate Fest in January, and the Ashland Independent Film Festival in April. When looking at flights to Oregon, remember that many attractions, such as the Sea Lion Caves in Florence, are open all year long. If you head over to Bend throughout the year, make sure to see the High Desert Museum, which features culture, art, and wildlife exhibits. If, however, you're looking to stay in Portland, enjoy its cuisine. Sperling's Best Places named it the second best city for food lovers thanks to its diverse selections and innovative dishes.
When you're ready to embark on this new frontier, find your flight and pick from among many Oregon hotels on Travelocity. You can save up to $537 by booking the two together.
