Reviews

3/7/2010
Overall rating: 8

Oregon, in the USA, has an area of 255,026 sq km. Its capital is Salem while its population is about 3,421,400.

Located in the Pacific North-west region of USA, Oregon has a rugged mountain chain, the Cascade, running through it. Its Pacific shoreline is adorned with narrow coastal plains of sandy beaches. Oregon has been bestowed with a diverse landscape, characterized by great forested mountain slopes and treeless basins, rushing rivers and barren playas, lush valleys and extensive wastelands.

Having an economy that is primarily dependent on agriculture and lumber, Oregon is now experiencing a rapid growth in the tourism and electronics industry.

Corvallis 4
Hi, I grew up in Corvallis, lived there over 60 years ago, left in 1951 when my family moved away. I went to school the first 9 years in Corvallis. A lot of nostalgia for me. However, I see nothing here to attract folks. Can find no pictures. It is a beautiful city. I worked at the University for awhile in 1970. My father had a business from about 1945 - 1947. He became disabled and we had to move on. I have very fond memories of Corvallis.

Portland 7
Portland people are really nice and friendly. The land is green and smells great. This is probably what makes its people wonderful. You get so many places to visit, including discreet Downtown, NW modern district, Powel's bookstore. You also can visit the natural attractions (actually rather a MUST) like Rose Graden, river Waterfront, Forest Park and much more to do there.
