The holidays are closer than you think. You’ve just filled up on all of that savory Thanksgiving turkey and pumpkin pie, raided the Black Friday sales, and now you’re less than three weeks away from the big honey ham dinner and gifts galore. It’s time to get in the spirit!
Did you know that Oregon is one of the largest producers and shippers of Christmas trees in the U.S.?
In fact, the Christmas tree business is so huge that the industry alone ranks as Oregon’s 10th top crop industry. Ironically, nestled away in the south-central Lake County, is a small town called Christmas Valley. How about that to add to Oregon’s holiday cheer?
Oregon is a prime part of the greener northwest, supplying a balance of ocean beaches, forested and mountainous areas for those outdoor enthusiasts and desert for those looking for wide open spaces.
This state provides endless possibilities for outdoor adventures and a dream area to call home.
Some of the places to visit in Oregon include the Oregon Caves, where you can see rock and marble layers of history, the Oregon Vortex House of Mystery where you see naturally occurring visual phenomena, the deep blue Crater Lake that consumes Oregon license plates, historical museums scattered throughout the entire state, and plenty of trails for discovering breathtaking nature sites and to try out the new gear Santa might be bringing you for Christmas.
