A state where everyone moves to to get away from other states that they don't like. Oregon is very schizophrenic in that it has all those hippies but also some of the most conservative people anywhere. All Oregonians, though, seem to share at least some things in common. One is a love of the outdoors. The other is a generally non violent nature. A third is a a lack of fascination with getting rich. And they don't care if you don't like the weather or think they are boring, or think they are "wannabee Seattle". They're just happy they moved here because things sucked where they were.

Oregon is still mostly unspoiled and beautiful, but it lacks any "old world" charm if you like that. Its not so different from California or Washington anymore, although the older natives still prefer to think of it as "special". Its greatest charm lies in the Willamette Valley, the coast, and the Columbia River Gorge. Its greatest disappointment lies in the over logged mountains that seldom get very tall or seem grand like real mountains should. Another disappoinment is the encroaching strip malls and developments that ring the Portand area and larger towns.

Oregon's weather can be divided into two "seasons" - warm and sunny, or cool and cloudy. From July to December, it progresses in an orderly fashion from the first to the second. From January to June, it doesn't. Although the November rains bother some, they are at least relatively warm and predicable.
The April-June rains on the other hand, are cold and unpredicable. By June, you are often living under conditions that are colder than almost anywhere else in the country, then suddenly it is 100 degrees almost overnight. And after hot July and August, beautiful and almost perfect September, the October rains are not as unwelcome as you might think.

Oregon is a state of intense contrast like the spring weather. Hot and cool. Liberal and conservative. Just don't move here if you a) don't like the outdoors, b) want to get rich or c) think that the state is filled with nothing but hicks and dirty hippies.

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!

Oregon is pronounced similar to carbon, not polygon.
Or-eh-gun.

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."
