Are you looking for a large family vacation in Oregon? Then you make the right choice.
Oregon is a wonderful place with small towns, cities, and parks that not many people know. This is a cozy and peaceful spot for a whole family to go picnic, sit on the grass, enjoy food, juice, and breathe the fresh air.
Sound interesting enough?
Let’s find out the best destinations you need to visit for a large family vacation in Oregon.
#1. Crater Lake National Park
It is impossible to describe the beauty and magnificence of this lake, isn’t it? Look at this!
If you don’t know, Crater Lake National Park is the deepest lake in America.
Really? Yes, it is. Just look at the lake and see a deep blue color, which is the reflex of the sky.
Marvelous, magnificent, beautiful, gorgeous, etc., are what you can describe Crater Lake. In common, we go around to seek the best spot to see the lake and make a camp.
Fresh air, of course, wind, and clouds are all surrounding when you put your feet on the peak of the mountain. Can you see that island in the middle of the lake? It’s called Wizard Island, and it’s actually a volcano collapsing a long time ago.
One more exciting thing is that you can explore a wild forest surrounding the lake before you can climb to the top of the mountain. It’s also worth it.
Beer, snack, juice, hot dogs, etc., let’s chill out with your big family and enjoy weekends or holidays with the view of the deepest lake in the USA.
#2. Portland food tour
Are you a “foodaholic”? If you are, then you cannot miss this place!
Why restaurants with expensive dishes while we can eat everything outside at a very low price? Yes, we are talking about the Portland food tour in Oregon – one of our favorite spots when we visit this state.
There are food tours by bike, van, and foot, but we suggest you should go on foot so that you can come to all the booths. The unique thing is that most sellers here are local and dress in hipster style. You will see no men in suit here; instead, beard men with headbands, t-shirts, and ripped jeans are there to serve you.
The Portland food tour tends to be easy as it’s suitable for your wallet, while there is various food your family can enjoy.
#3. Mount Hood National Forest
Though this is not a quiet place (four million visits per year), it’s worth coming around, hiking, biking, and camping in this beautiful forest.
Mount Hood National Forest is especially a perfect place for a large family vacation in Oregon. First, it’s not too expensive when you go camping or stay in a lodge. Second, there are lots of activities for the family: biking, mushroom, and berry collecting, hiking, fishing, or hunting. Lastly, the forest is vast and immense that you can never explore it entirely.
It sounds great, doesn’t it?
Let’s make a plan for you and your kids right now.
#4. Mount Bachelor Ski Area
This is an excellent choice for a large family who love skiing. Why? Because this mountain has the longest seasons for skiing in the USA, which lasts from November to the end of May.
As mentioned above, not many people know Oregon as a tourist attraction, so Mount Bachelor often has the lowest price in ski seasons. Pine Mountain Lodge is highly recommended as it’s the superb full-service restaurant with a magnificent view of the sun over the mountain. What is more to expect?
#5. Cannon Beach
If you want to change the atmosphere, Cannon Beach is not a bad idea. However, you should be aware that there are not many stores and restaurants along the beach. This is not a resort, either, so prepare for your large family vacation in Oregon with a long walk, enjoy the sunset and the smell of the sea.
There are just smalls coffee shops and pop shops near the sea for you to take a rest. Your family can also go swimming or build sandcastles. Let your children run, play, and swim without any worries.
Now you know some of the best destinations for a large family vacation Oregon. As you may know, there are more attractions around this beautiful state, but first, let’s start with these destinations above and enjoy yourself.
So, what is your plan? Let’s take a look back at the list and share your ideas now.
