Visiting East of the Cascades

The Interstate 5 Corridor transports visitors through the best of Oregon. Up and down I-5 cars are filled with travelers ready for a trek up Siskiyou Summit in the mountains of Northern Oregon, or for a journey through the rolling hills of Oregon’s Southern regions. Visitors stop for pictures at I-5’s 45th Parallel, the spot representing the halfway point between the North Pole and the Equator. Interstate 5 cuts through the bustling cities of Eugene, Salem and Portland and small towns like Woodburn, Keiser and Roseburg. Many Oregon I-5 cities and towns host welcoming festivities like the Oregon Cheese Festival or the Ashland Independent Film Festival.

Plan a road trip down I-5 and take a picturesque voyage through Oregon. The historic town of Woodburn hosts the Woodburn Tulip Festival. Hosted by Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm, the 2011 festival takes place March 25th through May 1st. Visitors are welcomed by more than 40 acres of brilliantly blooming tulips and daffodils. Don’t miss lunch at the Tulip Café and spoil yourself with some fresh cut flowers for your room at the nearby Woodburn Best Western hotel.

Salem, the state capitol, is convenient to Oregon’s I-5. Explore downtown Salem and visit the Mission Mill Museum, where guests get a glimpse of old Salem. Downtown also features the Thomas Kay Woolen Mill and several historic buildings now on the National Register of Historic Places. Kids will have fun at the A.C. Gilbert's Discovery Village, Salem’s interactive children’s museum, housing a 52-foot Erector Set tower.

The 2011 Keizer Iris Festival, held throughout May at Keizer Station, offers the best of local food and vendors, and, of course, amazing iris displays. The festival’s Family Village is packed with children’s activities and the Keizerfest Tent, popular for live music and adult refreshments.

Head South for a bite of chocolate in Roseburg. February 10th brings Roseburg’s 2011 Chocolate Sweetheart Wine Walk. Experience historic downtown Roseburg with an evening of wine tastings and chocolate treats. Spend time in Southern Oregon to celebrate outstanding local cheese crafters. Central Point offers the 2011 Oregon Cheese Festival held on March 19th. Sample your way through this 7th annual celebration representing the best of Oregon creameries to thousands of guests.

Since 1987 Ashland, another Southern stop along Oregon’s I-5, has offered visitors the Rogue Valley Growers & Crafters Market. The 2011 season begins in March. The Ashland Tuesday Market now offers a free covered Pedicab to transport visitors to and from parking. Film buffs check-out the Ashland Independent Film Festival held this spring from April 7th to 11th. This 10th annual affair presents over 80 independent films and is hosted at downtown Ashland’s historical Varsity Theatre. Looking for hotels in Ashland? There are two Best Western hotels in town, making Ashland a convenient stop during your travels along Oregon’s I-5.
