Oregon borders Washington State to the south. Much or all of the border is demarked by the Columbia River.

Oregon's largest city is Portland, Or, at about equal distance from Seattle as Vancouver, BC. It is popular with vacationing Seattlites for many reasons, including the lack of any sales tax, Powell's Books, and the Columbia River Gorge, about 35 miles to the east.

One of Oregon's major attractions for Seattlites is its nearly 363 miles of public coastline. In fact, Oregon's Seaside and Cannon Beach communities are nearly as accessible as Washington's more rugged beaches in Olympic National Park; for example, 3h42m driving time to Seaside, OR versus 3h44m to Kalaloch Lodge, WA, according to Google Maps.
