What are some of the best small towns in Oregon?

There are certain places that come to mind when it comes to Oregon towns: Portland, of course, along with Salem and Eugene, Bend, and Oregon City. And while each of these larger locales offers visitors the full PNW experience, Oregon has numerous smaller towns that deserve the spotlight, too. These seven small towns in Oregon capture everything that’s wonderful about the Beaver State — its scenic beauty, amazing restaurants, and unique attractions — plus vibrant downtown districts that are about as charming as it gets. They also transform into some of the most enchanting Christmas towns in Oregon during the holiday season!

What are some fun things to do during Christmas in Oregon?

Between our enchanting Christmas towns and festivals, there's so much to see and do during Christmas in Oregon! We absolutely love a good holiday lights display and share 11 Beaver State favorites in this article. Among those listed, you'll most definitely want to check out The Grotto, a PDX favorite that morphs into a truly magical winter wonderland each year. The Grotto boasts one of the best Christmas light displays in Oregon, making it a must-add to your bucket list. Bundle up for your stroll through Christmas magic.

What's Christmas in Oregon like?

The Beaver State shines all year long, but during the winter, when our quaint streets are dotted with twinkly lights and our mountains full of fresh, powdery snow, Oregon truly comes alive. While we typically don't experience a White Christmas in Oregon, that doesn't bother us at all, because this time of year is already perfect as is! (Also, the upside of mild winters means we can lace up our boots and enjoy epic outdoor adventures all year long!)
