As we approach December, many of us are planning out how we’re going to spend this year’s holidays. If you’re traditional and have firm family traditions, chances are, you already know exactly what you’ll be doing. However, if you like to mix things up a bit, you may be looking for some inspiration. If you fall into this second category, why not consider a Christmas break in Oregon? Here’s some information to help you determine if this is a good decision for you!


If you’re looking for a winter wonderland, Oregon State is the place to go. The weather in December is mainly influenced by the region’s Pacific North-west climate, which means that the coast has colder temperatures in winter and you are likely to find heavy rainfall in the west. On rainy days, it can be very humid towards the mainland with regular winds near the coastline. In short, this is going to be a cold, festive stay with high chances of snow between December and February.


It’s important to book your accommodation as far in advance as possible if you’re planning on visiting Oregon in the festive season. Demand is high and leaving things last minute could see you miss out. The good news is that there’s plenty of quality accommodation to choose from, each offering a holly jolly spirit as we approach Christmas day! Options like ​​Bend Oregon Resorts provide everything you need. You’ll be able to find an atmosphere of modern sophistication and world-class amenities amidst this undeniably relaxing location, nestled in Oregon’s natural beauty and untamed wilderness.

Getting There

Of course, getting to Oregon is simple, but the best option for you will depend on where you’re starting out. If you’re already in state or live in a neighbouring state, you may find that driving is completely fine. If you’re further away or would rather avoid long drives in winter conditions, you can fly into one of the state’s impressive 98 public use airports! The main is Portland International (PDX), but there are others ranging from Salem (SLE) to Klamath Falls (LMT), North Bend (OTH), Medford (MFR) and beyond!

Things to Do

There’s a lot to do in Oregon when you get there. Here are some of the top activities that people like to get involved in!

  • Portland Japanese Garden - by far one of the most talked about attractions in Oregon, the Japanese Garden is often considered the most authentic Japanese Garden outside of Japan. It features a cultural Village, complete with new garden spaces, classrooms, exhibition and gallery space.

  • Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area - located between the states of Oregon and Washington, this area features a 1243-mile-long river with 80 miles of canyons.

  • High Desert Museum - a truly one-of-a kind museum, the High Desert Museum has a host of stunning exhibits, helping you to familiarise yourself with the region, its history and culture.

Oregon really could prove to be a great shout for your Christmas festivities this year! Hopefully, some of the advice above will help you to decide whether it ticks your boxes!
