Once called the Oregon territory which also spread into present day Idaho, and Washington up to the 49th. One of the most sparsly populated states in America. Forestry, Tourism, and Hi Tech manufacturing are the backbone of the economy. Oregon has one of the most regimented and well organized recycling programs in the nation. Largest city is Portland and greater area. Eugene is the capital.
By far the best example of what America has to offer from what I have seen. The landscape is breathtaking and majestic as well as unspoiled. Being from British Columbia in Canada I appreciate such things. Portland Oregon is a world class city with clean streets, great pubs, good public transportation and attractive ladies.
Wonderland. Eden. Serenity. Clean. Natural. Unruined. Green. Peaceful.
Dont visit we don't want you.

The best state in the USA. The land is lush, the mountains are amazing, and the rain is the best scent you'll ever experience. The summers are amazing--quite warm, but never muggy--and the winters are the perfect time to go skiing on one of Oregon's many amazing mountains!
Oregonians are quite proud of their heritage when encountered on the east coast and take very personally when east coasters pronounce their state incorrectly.
P.S.~Oregonians can pronounce Nevada correctly, too.
I want to go to Oregon NOW!!
I am writing this in response to all the horrible mistakes people have written about oregon. 1st we hate californians because they move here and raise the price of houses and clutter up our street, and they can't drive, and not be cause we were them. 2nd. what kind of moron thinks that Eugene is the capital? It's salem you loser look at a map. 3rd We are fans of 2 colleges Oregon State and University of Oregon. Oregon State's colors are not green and yellow as some genious sugested in their definition. Oregon State's colors are Orange and Black. University of Oregons colors are green and yellow.
Oregon Rocks, we have everything. Beaches, Mountains, Rivers, and people who pump our gas for us.
I'm so glad i live in oregon where i know how to drive, and i know how to read a map and people pump my gas for me.
One of the most kickass states in the USA. Fewer crimes,friendlier people,not heavily populated,lots of pretty wooded and country area which unfortunatly can be hideouts for criminals and loons. Also many famous people have been to oregon to shoot movies and have homes built ((I hear Bruce Campbell
lives in Medford Oregon.))
Screw any state thats not oregon!
State in the USA.
Some cool things about Oregon:
Heavenly rain that's good for you in many ways.
Wood, lots of it.
Mt Hood, great place for snow related sports.
Portland: very unusually clean & friendly city.
No sales tax!!!
Gasoline is graciously pumped for you, stay in the car.
Pendelton round-up (rodeo).
Excellent farm land.
Did I mention that there's lots of fir trees in Oregon?
Oregon is pronounced similar to carbon, not polygon.
Oregon suffers from a moderately poor economy, however nobody really notices it because there's so many services, and so many other cool things about Oregon that you'd never care if it did effect you, unless you're a Californian by heart.
However, I'm obligated to say that Oregon REALLY sucks, so you won't move in.
"Welcome to Heaven, I mean Oregon!" -meselfs, welcoming born again Washingtonians.
"Move to upstate New York???? YOU WON'T TAKE ME ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" -meselfs, talking to parents when 9 years old.
"Hey cool, it's raining. Again." -Everyone.
Grandma: "You're soaking wet, meselfs! Take a poncho next time!"
meselfs: "You're no Oregonian. I don't know you."
The end of the Oregon trail. Home of Mt Bachelor, Mt Ashland, Timberline, Mt Hood Meadows, Willamette Pass, Hoodoo, Ski Bowl, and many other snowboard
ing spots. It's green and possesion of under an Oz of pot is only a civil fine! Come and visit me soon!
Damn, I live in some shit-ass state that won't let me get high and go snowboarding, I want to go to Oregon.
