In Travel Assignments, Travel Tips

If you love natural beauty and locally sourced food, Oregon is perfect for your next travel assignment. From the city block of food trucks in Portland to the natural beauty of waterfalls and parks, there’s no place like this! Grab your camera, hiking boots, and taste for the good life, and apply for a travel position in Oregon.

Must-Eat Restaurants

If there is one thing Oregonians love, it’s tasty, fresh foods like Portland’s Locally Sourced, Aggressively Seasonal Ava Gene’s Restaurant or The Painted Lady in Newburg which offers astute wine pairings and is a top spot for seasonal, local truffles. The Silver Grill in Silverton sources fresh, local ingredients from the Willamette Valley and offers diners Indian flavors along with Oregon classics like sturgeon filet; we understand it’s worth it to save room for dessert here too.

When you’re in Eugene, give Party Downtown a try; the hip vibe combines with the grassroots local culture of wineries, farmers, and breweries for a tasty experience. Eugene is in the heart of truffle country so plan a visit between late December and early March to taste the best white and black truffles in the state.

If you love wine and a good story, take a trip 60 miles outside Portland to J Wrigley Vineyards. Located in the McMinnville American Viticultural Area (AVA), home of the International Pinot Noir Festival, the vineyard is family-owned and operated and offers hand-crafted wines at their daily wine tastings, wine club, and weddings and other special events.

Must-Visit Places 

Among the benefits of being a travel provider in Oregon is that much of the area is dotted with top notch locally owned places to eat along with natural beauty. Whether you love the hustle and bustle of downtown Portland or the great outdoors of the surrounding area, it’s worth a visit for the experience.

If you love bridges and fun facts, you’ll love that Portland plays host to 12 bridges that cross the Willamette Valley! They’re quite a sight especially in the evening when they light the sky. Portland Spirit River Cruises offers daytime and evening cruises that include food and entertainment along with tours from the water of downtown Portland, Columbia River Gorge and more. Sit back and enjoy the view!

For those seeking a more active adventure, there are hiking and camping options across the state including Mount Hood guided daytrips, hiking the Columbia River Gorge, and The Painted Hills southeast of Portland. We recommend visiting the Clarno Unit near The Painted Hills where you can see Mars-like pillars that were formed by waterfalls and volcanic sludge, and Sheep Rock Unit where 40,000+ plant and animal fossils are displayed at the Thomas Condon Paleontology Center.

Must-Photograph Places

Grab your camera and visit Crater Lake National Park in Southwest Oregon. Located in the Cascade Mountains, the area is best known for Crater Lake which was formed by the now-collapsed volcano Mount Mazama. Check the weather and national park website for weather related detours and closures, especially in the winter months.

Between Portland and McMinnville in Sheridan is Erratic Rock State Natural Site a state park that featuring a 90-ton rock that was deposited during the Ice Age via the Columbia River. It’s a great option for a day hike.

Take a 30-minute drive outside Portland through the Columbia River Gorge to see Multnomah Falls, a 611 foot roaring waterfall. We recommend getting out of the car for the short hike where you can feel the spray from the base of the falls. If we’re talking natural beauty, Multnomah, along with nearby falls, are worth the trip for the experience and a few photos that will make your friends jealous they aren’t with you!

Whether you love the outdoors, a perfect photo opportunity, or locally sourced food, Oregon is the perfect place for your next travel assignment! Visit AB Staffing Open Positions to learn more and apply.
