Welcome to Travel Oregon.

Tourism in Oregon is an $11.8 billion industry. Our industry directly generates more than 112,000 jobs in Oregon – with secondary impacts that create another 56,900 jobs. As a key driver in Oregon’s economy, what you do every day to support tourism matters. Together, we can do something even greater. Whether it’s timely research, tourism planning tools, or inspiration for your next marketing campaign, our aim is to provide resources to support the work that you do. Learn more about Travel Oregon and let us know how we’re doing. We’d love to hear from you.

About the video: The Communities Powered by Travel video series highlights participants in the Oregon Tourism Studio — a robust training program designed to assist rural Oregon communities in tourism planning, development and management to support their continued economic revitalization. In its eighth entry, Travel Oregon, in collaboration with Maser Films, checked in with some of the community members of the Columbia River Gorge to see how their region is working together to manage tourism across this bi-state region of Oregon and Washington.
