Residents can experience the Columbia River gorge, world-renowned for windsurfing; Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the U.S that is located inside the remains of dormant volcano;and the Sea Lion Caves, the world's largest sea cave. Don't forgot to hit Portland, one of the continental states' underrated hubs of creativity.
