It's that time of year again. Time to start planning that Oregon Road Trip. Oregon has more designated scenic byways and tour routes than any other state. The Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild is the only State B&B Association of B&Bs and a welcoming inn awaits you as you travel the backroads. I am presenting a series of blogs to assist you in creating create amazing getaways and tours in Oregon. Thanks Travel Oregon for sharing this information.
'A Scenic Alternative to the Freeway. Contrary to popular belief, cruise control on Interstate 5 is not the only way to travel between the Portland and Eugene areas. If you're in no hurry, this journey through the colorful western Cascades makes getting there all the fun. Especially because, in addition to the open road, there are miles of rivers and trails to explore.
'The 220 mile West Cascades Scenic Byway runs north to south, skirting the northern half of Oregon's Cascade Range and follows four great rivers through timeless forests, where you'll discover adventure and renewal along the way.'
Consider making this a two, or three, day trip. Take your time and enjoy the fall colors, lush forests, and spectacular views of snow capped mountains. Begin your journey after a hearthy Northwest Breakfast at an Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild in the Portland area, travel south toward Central Oregon then finish up in Eugene or Cottage Grove. Make your plans soon as sections of this Scenic Byway are closed during the winter months.
Get to know our State like a local. Experience romantic getaways, historic treasures, and tucked away rustic retreats. Whether your trip is for a quiet escape to a quaint rural or coastal town, for a World Class City experience or for a new spin on business travel, you can be assured of combining gracious hospitality with ambiance by staying at an inspected and approved Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild member Inn.
