Mini Guide to Oregon
How do I get to Oregon?
Oregon’s geographical position means it’s far easier to get to from countries around the Pacific Rim. There are no flights from Europe to the state’s main airport at Portland
and the only way for European travellers to get to the state is by flying to the east coast and catching a connecting flight or trying Seattle
Airports and getting a connection from there. Make sure you check out the prices carefully for, although the routes are little different in time taken, there can be great differences in price. Unless you are intending to stay in Portland you would be recommended to arrange to collect a hire car from the airport. These can be booked online at Rhinocarhire.com and this should ensure you get the choice of vehicle you want.
What is There to see in Oregon?
Oregon is all about the great outdoors and even the people from the big cities such as Portland spend their weekends and vacations exploring the wilds of Oregon’s mountains and woods. Some of the world’s most spectacular scenery can be found in Oregon with wild and rugged cliffs as well as the impressive peak of Mount Hood, part of the Cascade Mountains.
Portland is a self-appointed city of fun and there are many cultural activities there including a pioneer’s museum as well as lots of bars, restaurants, clubs and theatres. Many visitors decide to spend a little time in the city before heading to the wilds, seeing the best of both worlds in Oregon.
