The Seven Wonders of Oregon

This is a Fashionista Events opportunity.

The 7 Wonders of Oregon

I have had the privilege of visiting Oregon. It is truly one of the most beautiful states in the US. While it may not be on the list of the Seven Wonders of the World, Oregon has a list of its own Seven Wonders that could certainly be added to the world list.

The places I’ve seen so far:

The coast

The Oregon coast is truly spectacular. The cliffs and rock formations are breathtaking. All 363 miles of the Oregon Coast are free and open to all of us. Which means how you choose to explore it is entirely up to you.

Mt. Hood

Ski it in the winter (actually, there is even one place for year-round skiing), hike it in the summer. Mt. Hood is a great destination for outdoor lovers. Forests and valleys fill with lavender and wildflowers in the spring, and apples and pears and berries in the summer and fall. 

Smith Rock

If you’ve ever wanted to learn to rock climb, this is a top spot on the West Coast. I even attended a wedding there. Home to 300 days of sun a year, Smith Rock is located in an outdoor adventurer’s playground.

Columbia River Gorge

The gorge is America’s largest National Scenic Area. There are also some of the nations best wineries there. Take in the view with a wonderful glass of wine.

The places I can’t wait to see:

Crater Lake

This beautiful National Park is one of Oregon’s most stunning natural wonders. The water is so blue, so deep, it’s no surprise it’s the deepest lake in America, and one of the deepest on earth. 

Painted Hills

Until doing research for this post, I had no idea this area existed in Oregon. It’s on my list for my next visit. The yellows, golds, blacks, and reds of the Painted Hills are best seen in the late afternoon. Goodness, it’s gorgeous!

The Wallowas

You can hike or ride a horse to the summit, but the fastest way to the top is the gondola that rises 3,700 feet from Wallowa Lake Village to the peak of Mt. Howard. That’s the way I want to go up for sure!

I highly recommend a visit to Oregon if you get a chance. I am looking forward to my next trip. My entire family will love it!

Sharing is caring!
