Welcome to Oregon!
Temperatures are classified as mild but vary substantially due to the geographic features of the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade Range. Winters are generally mild and wet West of the Cascade Range due to the proximity of the Pacific Ocean while the eastern side of the Cascade Range allow for the abundance of clear and calm weather.
Tourism, technology, and service-based businesses play an important role in Oregon’s economy. The income has slowly moved away from the resource-based industries such as, fishing, forestry and agriculture even though they are still important to the state’s economic profile.
Tucked in the Norwest corner of the country, Oregon is a unique area of natural resources and amazing sceneries. The magnificent ocean views, rugged landscape, and natural beauty showcase the best of this great state.
Major cities in Oregon include Portland, Eugene, Salem, Gresham, Beaverton, and Hillsboro.
