Destination Oregon: Pacific Reef

When you visit the Oregon Coast, there are all kinds of lodging options.

Hotels, condos, Airbnbs, campgrounds – you name it.

But this time of year, there’s a place in Gold Beach that offers a feature you just can’t find anywhere else.

In this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave Jones takes us to Pacific Reef Hotel, which offers an entertaining and unique holiday feature.

 

Destination Oregon: Washed Ashore

There’s an old saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”

Well, there’s an art gallery on the Oregon Coast that has modified that adage, and, in the process, is using art to point out our careless ways.

In this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave Jones takes us to a gallery in Bandon’s Old Town District, where they’re making plastic ocean pollution into sea-saving art.

Destination Oregon: Exit 33

Traveling up and down I-5 in Western Oregon, there are dozens of rest stops.

Destination Oregon: Columbia Gorge Model Railroad Club

For those of you who have been around for a while, you might remember what the Columbia Gorge was like back in the 1950s. If that doesn’t apply to you, well, we have the next best thing.

In this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave Jones takes us to a miniature version of The Gorge in the ’50s, with model trains being the star attraction.

 

Destination Oregon: Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum

When you think of Hood River, you likely imagine vast fruit orchard, a quaint downtown or maybe kiteboarders on the Columbia River. There’s all that, to be sure, but on the bluffs above Hood River, there is living transportation history at the Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum and Dave Jones takes us there in this week’s Destination Oregon.
