Frommer's Oregon (Frommer's Oregon)by Karl Samson
Synopses & Reviews
Written by a longtime resident, Frommer’s Oregon is a highly personal guide, full of the author’s favorite finds and off-the-beaten-track discoveries. We’ll show you the best of Portland, and then take you along the coast to explore the most charming resort towns and hike past otherworldly rock formations on the beach. It’s all here: the unbelievably blue waters of Crater Lake; the world-class Oregon Shakespeare Festival at Ashland; hiking, mountain-biking, and skiing at Bend; art galleries and craft shops; microbreweries and fabulous seafood; and a host of incresingly renowned wineries. You’ll find a wide choice of accommodations, from romantic inns on the coast to wilderness lodges in the pristine forest. With Frommer’s in hand, it’s easy to design the Oregon adventure that’s right for you.

About the Author
Karl Samson lives in Oregon, where he spends his time juggling his obsessions with traveling, gardening, outdoor sports, and wine.

Karl is also the author of Frommer’s Washington, Frommer’s Seattle, and Frommer’s Portable Portland.
