More About Oregon
Oregon is one of best outdoor vacation locations in the United States and known for its beautiful sights, such as the Grotto. The National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother is a peaceful garden featuring a replica of Michaelangelo's Pieta. You also won't want to miss Portland's Japanese Gardens. When visiting the Gardens, you can park in the lot and walk up the path towards the Gardens, pausing now and then to look through the trees. Other great outdoor locations are in Southern Oregon where the Rogue River supports great fishing. In the summer months this peaceful park comes alive with brightly colored rhodedendrons. For those who love the indoors, there are several museums and homes to visit. The Pittock Mansion is a beautiful turn-of-the-century home in Portland, the past home of Portland pioneer and founder of The Oregonian newspaper, Henry Pittock. Another beautiful home is the Shelton-McMurphey-Johnson House. This historic home and museum is located on the slope of Skinner Butte. For yet another kind of museum, the Oregon Air and Space museum is always a great stop. This museum has an interesting collection of experimental aircraft.
