Benefits of Living in Oregon

Oregon has always been a land of mountains and rivers, skies and valleys. These days it’s also a state with a growing job market that’s full of friendly communities, awe-inspiring sights, and enjoyable local attractions. If you make the decision to move to Oregon, you’re embarking on an adventure taking you to places like nowhere else on earth. Around every corner you’ll taste, see, and encounter how truly amazing Oregon is. Here's everything you'll need to know about Oregon!


A Quick History of Oregon

Oregon’s history began with the many Native American tribes who originally inhabited the region. These include the Chinook, Tillamook, and Nez Perce tribes. They relied on Oregon’s rich natural resources to hunt, fish, and gather the food and resources they needed. The first Europeans to visit Oregon were Spanish sailors in the 16th century, followed soon after by the English explorer and privateer Sir Francis Drake. Eventually, the Oregon territory was claimed by the United States and explored by the Meriwether Lewis and William Clark Expedition by 1805. The British Hudson’s Bay Company also had a strong presence in the region up until the 1840s.

During the 1830s and 1840s, thousands of American settlers from New England and the Midwest migrated into Oregon. The impetus from this settlement resulted in Oregon officially become part of the United States in 1846. Since then, Oregon has experienced steady industrial and population growth. The clean air and water, open spaces, and scenic natural environment has been a big draw to Oregon for as long as it has existed. Today, Oregonians continue to come to terms with their past, plan for the future, and seek to create harmony in the present within one of the most attractive and dynamic corners of the United States.


Oregon is a Hub of Business and Technology

Portland, Oregon’s biggest city and its epicenter of business and technology, has experienced an above-average job growth rate for over a decade. This is a result of the diverse, cutting-edge industries that have gained a foothold in Portland. These include some of the largest private software and IT companies in the US, a robust high-tech electronic manufacturing sector, a strong healthcare industry, and several leading athletic and outdoor apparel brands. Educational institutions also count as one of the largest employers in the area, providing a steady stream of recent graduates to fuel the growth of Oregon’s many industries.


Oregon’s Coast is Amazing

One of the best features of this Pacific Northwest state is its scenic coastline. A rugged stretch of 363 miles of beaches and cliffs that are flanked by mountains and forest, the coast of Oregon is full of wonderful places to visit and live. From the Sea Lion Caves just off Highway 101 to Haystack Rock looming over Cannon Beach, there are spectacular sights to see. You can also venture into the Oregon Dunes National Recreation area that stretches for 40 miles between Florence and Coos Bay or explore the tide pools that nestle along Oregon’s rocky coast from Cannon Beach to Haceta Head.


You'll Want to Explore Oregon’s Mountains, Rivers, and Lakes

Besides the coast, there are many other natural wonders that reside in Oregon’s interior. Oregon’s entire landmass is crisscrossed with mountains, rivers, plains, and forests. The jewel in the crown of Oregon’s mountains is Mt. Hood. This iconic peak sits just east of Portland along the Columbia River Gorge, itself a hub of outdoor and culinary activities. Here you can float down the Clackamas River, hike trails hugging the base of the mountain, bicycle and drive along scenic vistas, and taste all of the local specialties. Whether you’re looking to live here or make it a weekend getaway, there’s more than enough to keep the avid explorer or eater busy here.

Sitting near the center of Oregon, Crater Lake is another place that explorers will love. There are trails to suit everyone from the passionate hiker to the novice, interpretive centers, boat trips out onto the lake, multiple lodging options including lots of camping sites, and skiing in the winter. If you want a wild and adventurous time while creating memories that last forever, seeking the hills and waters of Crater Lake is a must-do.


Portland is Vibrant

Once you set foot in Oregon, it’s only a matter of time until you’re drawn to the pulsating heart of this dynamic state. Portland is a hub of technology, education, food, and the arts. It’s full of attractions such as Powell’s Books (a bookstore filling an entire city block), the Oregon Zoo (known as a visitor-friendly way to encounter wildlife closeup), Pittock Mansion (an elegant estate offering amazing views of the city), the Portland International Rose Test Garden (brimming with roses of all kinds), and the Portland Art Museum (featuring collections of art from around the world).


You'll Love Portland Food

Time in Portland can’t be truly appreciated without sampling some of the delicious food the city has to offer. The standout hits include internationally famous Voodoo Doughnuts, local favorite Blue Star Doughnuts, ice cream at Salt & Straw and Ruby Jewel, and breweries like Lucky Labrador, Ex Novo, Ecliptic Brewing, and Stormbreaker Brewing. There’s also restaurants that specialize in international foods made with local ingredients. Portlanders love places like Cooperativa, an Italian market and café, Republica, which serves authentic Mexican cooking, and Mama Dut, featuring a vegan spin on Veitnamese food.


Other Cities To Visit

Outside of Portland, Oregon has many other vibrant cities to explore. Eugene is a youthful city of arts and culture. Bend is a great place for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, situated near the Cascade Mountains and providing outdoor opportunities all year long. Salem is a laid-back city full of universities, parks, and museums. Astoria lies at the mouth of the Columbia River, and has a rich history and rustic charm as one of the earliest modern settlements in the area. Hood River sits at a prime spot on the Columbia River, offering prime opportunities for watersports and wineries. Ashland servers as a cultural center for southern Oregon and hosts festivals and markets, as well as shops, great food, and lots of outdoor recreation.
