The Oregon Town That Transforms Into A Watermelon Wonderland Each Year
Summertime memories of childhood often include cool, crisp wedges of watermelon with juice running down your chin and a seed spitting contest with cousins. There’s one town in Oregon that grows the best melons in the state, and you’re going to want to visit this summer.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
