Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It features rugged rocky coastlines, dense forests, fun cities, mountains, deep canyons, and desert in the southeastern part of the state.
If driving in Oregon, be aware of a state law that does not allow self-service at gas stations. A gas station attendant must pump the gas.
Also, be aware that the name of the state is pronounced "OR-ah-ginn"; a popular saying that is often recited to tourists and newcomers is "if you say 'or-eh-GONE', you should be."
