Oregon Hotel Reservations
Visiting East of the Cascades
From the Interstate Bridge, crossing the Columbia River outside Portland on Oregon’s northern state line, and south over the Siskiyou Summit, Oregon’s Interstate 5 corridor is a lifeline for north and southbound travelers in western Oregon. Serving the Beaver State's most populous cities and urban areas, I-5 links Salem, the state capital, Eugene, home of the University of Oregon, Corvallis' Oregon State University, and Portland, the states largest city.
Fall means Oregon arenas and stadiums fill with fans cheering on their favorite teams. In Portland the NBA Trail Blazers begin the 2013-2014 home season at the Moda Center at the Rose Quarter. Formerly called the Rose Garden, the Moda Center is the spot for basketball fans. The 2013 WHL Champion Portland Winterhawks also make the Rose Quarter home for the current 2013-2014 hockey season. The Winterhawks play home matches at either the Moda Center of Veterans Memorial Coliseum – check your ticket for the correct destination.
In Eugene, at the southern end of the Willamette Valley, the University of Oregon and Ducks athletics dominate the fall sports scene. Oregon’s Autzen Stadium fills on game days to cheer on the Oregon Ducks football team. North in Corvallis, 10 miles west of Interstate 5, fall is all about Oregon State University Beaver football. The PAC 12 Beavers fill Reser Stadium with over 40,000 excited fans.
Holiday travelers south on I-5 make a stop in Grants Pass for a tour of the Magical Musical Christmas Murals. Downtown Grants Pass features a series of 18 fiber optic murals depicting a holiday scene with light and sound. The Magical Musical Christmas Murals are on display from November 15th through January 4th, 2014.
The Willamette Heritage Center at the Mill in Salem presents Magic at the Mill for the holidays. The 14th Annual Magic at the Mill runs evenings December 19th through 23rd. With thousands of lights sparkling throughout the center, entertainment, shopping, and food, the Willamette Heritage Center is a must for visitors to Salem during the Christmas holiday. Bring the family, events include kids activities, the miniature train is running and Santa visits nightly.
Ring in 2014 at the Linn County Fair & Expo Center in Albany at the 2013 Hoof n’ Holler Bull Bash & New Year’s Eve Celebration. Take in the excitement of championship Bull Riding, ride a mechanical bull and enjoy an authentic Old West main street. Hoof N’ Holler is an exciting start to 2014.
