Oregon is known predominantly for its expansive forests, rainy days and hippie culture, but that's certainly not all there is to this state. To call it diverse would be an understatement - both its citizens and its landscape vary so widely it's almost impossible to put a label on the state. The coastline is rugged and rocky (but undoubtedly beautiful), while the mountainous eastern part of the state hosts an abundance of sharp, snow-capped mountains. In between you'll find the High Desert, sprawling, lush forests, waterfalls and wineries. You'll find more craft breweries in Oregon than you will almost anywhere else in the country. The majority of the culture subscribes to the "shop local" criterion.
