Visiting East of the Cascades
Oregon’s Interstate 5 Corridor makes travel through the Beaver State quick and convenient. Whether its business at the State Capital in Salem, a cultural adventure in Portland,Oregon’s Rose City, or an adventure outside Eugene – I-5 makes travel effortless and easy. From Mount Saint Helens in northern Oregon, to Medford and Ashland in the southern reaches, I-5 is the best route for travelers to reach their destinations. Fall bathes Crater Lake National Park and surrounding forests in spectacular autumn colors. November brings the end of Ashland’s 2012 Oregon Shakespeare Festival. And soon the Portland Trailblazers heat up the court at the Rose Garden.
Saint Helens, 30 miles north of Portland, is the place to celebrate Halloween. Each weekend in October, Saint Helens transforms into Halloweentown. Weekend festivities feature giant scarecrows, and ghoulish merchants and shopkeepers along Olde Towne Saint Helens’ riverfront district. Dress in costume and join the fun, contests and activities in Saint Helens. Stick around for the weekend and remember to mention Halloweentown for a special rate at the Saint Helens Best Western Hotel.
Mid-way between Portland and Salem, the community of Woodburn is home of Oregon’s only drag strip, the Woodburn Dragstrip. After hosting the last NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Northwest Division event at the track in September, the Woodburn Dragstrip continues the 2012 season through November 18th. Take exit 271 west off I-5 to the dragstrip, just past the Woodburn Golf Course. Fall events include Jr. Dragster Fall Series races on October 7th and 13th, with the 35th Annual Awards Banquet on November 18th.
Conveniently located 20 miles north of Salem, Woodburn Company Stores is also located west of Interstate 5, off exit 271. The popular outlet shopping area is an ideal stop to stock up on your favorite clothing and household items.
Although the Oregon State Fair is over, the Oregon State Fair & Expo Center has an inviting schedule of fall and winter events. Find the resources to get that remodeling project done before the holidays, at the 2012 Salem Home & Remodeling Show, at the Fairgrounds October 26th through 28th. December at the Oregon State Expo brings hobbyists the 2012 Salem Coin and Stamp show, just in time to find a special holiday gift – the show is December 1st and 2nd in Columbia Hall.
A fall tradition in Grants Pass, Art Along the Rogue: Street Painting & Music Festival, celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2012. Art Along the Rogue 2012 is October 6th and 7th, featuring street painter Melanie Stimmell Van Latum creating the popular Angry Birds characters. Don’t miss the 30-foot wide 3-D drawing that will decorate the side of Hannah’s Historic Grants Pass Steam Laundry building and extend across the sidewalk and into the street. Join the fall festivities on H Street in downtown Grants Pass – enjoy live music and fun in the streets.
