National Geographic Honors Travel Oregon

Travel Oregon finished as a finalist for the Destination Leadership category of the prestigious National Geographic World Legacy Awards presented earlier this month at ITB Berlin.

The award recognizes the work being done across the state by rural communities and business leaders to transform the places they call home into world-class travel destinations–while raising awareness for community livability, economic vitality and preservation of natural and cultural assets.

More than 100 entries, representing 51 countries across six continents, were received.
