“Land of the rose and sunshine, land of the summer breeze; laden with health and vigor, fresh from the winter seas.” These lines from the state song encapsulate Oregon’s appeal. Those lines don’t just describe the natural settings of Oregon but also its people—laid-back, easy breezy, but vigorous when they need to be. Its state birthday is February 14. That fact might be one of the reasons why it is so easy to fall for Oregon.
The state has a population of approximately 4 million living in an area of 98,381 square miles. Its capital is Salem. The biggest and its most popular city is Portland.
The western part is heavily forested and mountainous while the eastern part is mostly a sprawling desert. The inhabited areas have a climate that can be best described as mild, with tolerable winters and dry summers. On its northern border runs the Columbia River, turning the areas parallel to it fertile and fecund.
Many Native American groups lived in the Oregon areas for years. Among these were the Takelma, Bannock, Kalapuya and Nez Perce.
The first Europeans to explore the area were Spaniards in the 16th century. They were followed by the English, led by Francis Drake who claimed parts of the land for the Crown.
An early 19th-century expedition was commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson to catalog the plants that grow and the animals that lived in the territory. This was also done to lay claim to the land before other countries would.
Among the first settlers of European descent was Etienne Lussier, who as a member of the Wilson Hunt Price expedition arrived in modern-day Oregon during 1811-12. In 1829, he settled into a cabin in what is now Portland, becoming its first resident.
Starting in 1841, people started to flock from the Midwest to Oregon for farming. The route for this trek, done by migrants traveling by wagons, became the Oregon Trail, and over the years more than 400,000 people used the Oregon Trail and its many offshoots to migrate from the Missouri River Valley to the Pacific Northwest.
In 1846, the border between the U.S. and British territories in North America was formerly established at the 49th parallel, with land to the south becoming part of the U.S. Oregon became a state in 1859.
Oregon’s economy is fueled by agriculture, forestry, and fisheries, tourism, and technology.
Oregon produces hazelnut, berries, cranberries, and grapes that when turned into wine can rival that of the much-touted French variety. Oregon also produces dairy products.
Timber production might have slowed down due to overharvesting in the past, but Oregon’s rich forests still provide for building materials and paper products.
Its natural sceneries (including the mountains, waterfalls, lakes, and beaches) consistently draw visitors, year after year.
As of 2015, companies that employ the most Oregonians are Nike, Sylvan Learning Center, ICS Blount Inc., Ohana Party Rentals and Oregon State University.
Careers in logging, power distribution and dispatching, logging equipment operations, forestry, and religious and educational administration are the most popular in the state.
Considered as the best restaurant in Portland, Le Pigeon’s beef cheek bourguignon has delighted even the snootiest food writers.
Gamberitti’s, a trattoria located in Salem, gets raves from those who love Italian food.
The location, a former train station, already gives Oregon Electric Station in Eugene a nice touch. Diners water at the thought of its seared sea scallops.
Zydeco Kitchen and Cocktails in Bend offers Cajun-flavored dishes. Its barbecued shrimps are supposedly not to be missed.
All four are fancy dining experiences from Oregon’s top cities. But go to any grocers and pick up a Tillamook cheese. And if you see a food truck named Nong’s Khao Man Gai, then there is no mistake about that name because it only sells khao man gai, the tasty Thai chicken rice bowl.
Drown all the food with beer from the many microbreweries in the state which are just ubiquitous. Breakside Brewery in Portland is a microbrewery that’s getting almost perfect ratings.
If you’re into walkable cities or those that can be biked through and even be just gazed upon, then one will have a wonderful time at Portland because it is eco-friendly, lush with trees, and planned with bikers and hikers in mind. It doesn’t have the adrenaline-pounding pace of New York but what it offers instead is the sense of calm when you stare at its cityscapes featuring those famous bridges like Hawthorne Bridge and Broadway Bridge which are now city landmarks.
Gaze even further, like outside of earth, in Oregon Museum of Science and Industry’s Kendall Planetarium that is considered as one of the most advanced in the country.
A wilderness within the city seems like an oxymoron but that’s what Forest Park is exactly.
Watch a cultural event inside the splendid Grand Theatre in Salem. Its Romanesque design is a trigger for your finger to click on the camera.
You can also go to the commodious Reed Opera House. But don’t expect Wagner or Verdi. While it used to be a venue for high culture, it is now a shopping mall.
Performances are regular though at the Hult Center of the Performing Arts in Eugene. Ballet, opera, and a concert choir are commissioned to perform there regularly.
If you know a little Spanish, then you’ll have an idea of what to see in Plaza del Sol (in English, sun plaza). It’s a curated public space in Gresham with an installation that replicates the solar system.
Looking for canines? Then the Hondo Dog Park is the place to go in Hillsboro. By the way, the park is named after a police dog.
If visiting a 19th-century farmhouse owned by one of the first settlers gives you thrills, then the restored Fanny Farmhouse in Beaverton is for you.
Camp and fish all you want at the Crater Lake National Park in Klamath County. The park staff won’t look for a fishing license. So, fishing amateurs, give it a try even if you will end the day empty-handed for lack of skill.
Since the Nike headquarters are there, you might as well shop at Nike Factory Store in Portland where pairs and pairs of the celebrated footwear are sold at discounted prices.
In Ashland, the theatre buff will get giddy by catching plays during the Oregon Shakespeare festival. Three theatres are involved in this theatre celebration, including the outdoor Allen Elizabethan Theatre. It runs for almost a year, from February to November.
