If there is a nicer piece of real estate than northwest Oregon I doubt that I’ve seen it. The fabulous combination of mountains, ocean, waterfalls, vineyards and of course the laid back atmosphere of Portland make for a bucket list destination for anyone who loves the great outdoors and real good coffee.
