Visit Oregon for the Best Family Vacation

Updated on April 30, 2009

Take an Oregon family vacation and you will find yourself surrounded by adventure in vast, beautiful vistas. From the cosmopolitan charm of Portland to the painted hills of Eastern Oregon, you will experience the thrill of a variety of landscapes and scenery. You can visit the wineries and historic towns of the fertile Willamette Valley, the lakes of Southern Oregon, the foothills and ski slopes of Mt. Hood, the deserts of central Oregon, or the beautiful 363 miles of coastline along Oregon’s far western edge. With so much topography all within one state, you are sure to find something in your Oregon family vacation for all members of your family to enjoy.

Oregon Coast

The Oregon coast is one of the state’s most popular vacation destinations, and for good reason. 363 miles of cliffs, forests, dunes, and beaches stretch along the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Small coastal towns offer a variety of attractions, from outstanding seafood restaurants to breathtaking views of the ocean to galleries and museums. The Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport houses over 500 species of aquatic animals and is ranked among the top ten aquariums in the United States by USA Today and Coastal Living Online.

The aquarium exhibits the flora and fauna of the Oregon Coast, which include sharks, rays, rockfish, sea lions, seals, jellyfish, and sea otters. In addition, visitors can learn about the ecology of the Oregon coast through displays that recreate the coast.

Oregon Beach Vacations offers several Oregon vacation rentals designed to help you get the most of your family vacation. You can choose lodging that includes oceanfront views, pet friendly properties, hot tubs, and kitchens. Oregon Beach Vacations can accommodate your large group and help you find the beach activities that best suit your needs.

Central Oregon

Central Oregon is a sports-lover’s paradise. In the winter, skiing and snow sports are in full supply, and in the spring, summer, and fall, golf, fly-fishing, hiking, rock climbing, and camping offer many outdoor experiences. After a day of outdoor adventure, you can relax in the region’s many restaurants and enjoy an active nightlife and arts events. Take advantage of Sunriver Vacation Rentals at the foot of the Cascade Mountains.

The Oregon Advantage

An Oregon family vacation gives you more options for entertainment than almost anywhere else in the country. Satisfy the interests of every member of your family by walking the beautiful beaches, hiking in the mountains, or taking advantage of all the arts and nightlife that Oregon has to offer.
