If you haven't made your way out to Oregon before, you're missing out. The wildlife is gorgeous and the people are down-to-earth and friendly. If you're thinking of moving out there, I personally recommend the city of Corvallis. It's located in the Willamette Valley region, and is know as the home of Oregon State University. The attractions around the city are perfect for families, and the events the University brings in make the city lively and exciting.
