Visiting Oregon on a Budget

Visiting Oregon on a Budget

Part 6

You don’t need a ton of money to have a good time in Oregon. Just a full tank of gas and an appetite for adventure. At the end of this post, I’ll share with you a few places that I visited and how much I paid.

My experience in Oregon was like falling in love for the very first time. Unforgettable walks along the beautiful blue ocean from the sandy beaches to the rugged cliffs and the forestry in between. The natural beauty and scenery in Oregon are awe-inspiring it’s magical. It has a unique charm about it that just won’t let my soul rest. I think I have fallen head over heels with the state of Oregon. Ha! I can honestly say that I will call Oregon home one day. Have you ever fallen in love with a state or country and then moved there? If so, I like to hear about your experience. Please leave a comment below.

Most of the places that I visited in Oregon was free and right along the historic Highway 101. My first experience of Hwy 101 was in California last summer. I drove from San Francisco down to Big Sur to see the iconic Bixby Bridge in person. This bridge was featured in several luxury car commercials a few years back. Do you remember seeing it? Next summer I’ll cross the Bixby Bridge again when I make one epic road trip to California and all the way up to the state of Washington. More detail to come.

    1. You should. Oregon does not disappoint! It’s the most beautiful state I’ve visited so far. Pictures does it no justice! Lol let me know if you decide to go and I’ll help you plan your trip. I explored so many beautiful places and over 95% of them was free even the beaches and they all have breathtaking views. Can’t wait to go back and explore a bit more.
