Two months ago it was waterfalls, wildlife, caves and sand dunes that were captivating Rob and Chris Taylor and their family as they road tripped through Southern Oregon.

Here in Oregon, Interstate 5 is most graciously known as the thoroughfare threading through our major cities. Yes, it’s a perfectly zippy path I’ve taken to get from place to place. But you don’t get a sense of the valley’s true charm until you slow down, pull off the main drag and ease into the rhythm of its his

To shred or not to shred? Yeah, that’s not really a question in Oregon. Of course you shred. Whether you’re a mellow mountain biker who's into smooth, swoopy trails or an expert who likes to huck the gnar (that’s mountain-bike speak for going off jumps), every corner of the state has a little bit to offer.

This year at Feast, Portland’s citywide dining festival, Burgerville is debuting one of the most daring burgers in the United States at its Hawthorne Boulevard location in Portland and at PDX.

I’ve always felt a connection with the big blue. In college I transferred to the University of Hawaii for a semester just so I could hang out at the beach. And in my 20s, I traveled to a surf camp in Indonesia — but I had yet to start surfing back in my home state of Oregon. Strangely enough, I thought being a surfer

In a city with a world-renowned doughnut shop famous for its over-the-top decorations and flavor combos, it’s only fitting that Portland is also home to one of the tallest burgers in the country.

Sure, you could drive straight from Point A to Point B when traveling anywhere in Oregon, but where’s the fun in that?
