There are plenty of amazing trips in this month’s 13 Southwest Summer Getaways feature (pg. 104), but if you want something a little greener, a little cooler, head to the Pacific Northwest. Katie Johnson, a proud Oregonian and communications manager for Visit Central Oregon, says the Beaver State “provides really cool vacation experiences for all types of travelers. You can have a meal on a patio, but also summit a mountain!” Johnson recommends Sunriver Resort in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains for an activity-packed trip with golfing, biking and kayaking. For something more laid-back, the artsy town Sisters “has that old soul,” Johnson says. The new Navigate Oregon service makes safe travel a breeze with transportation in a socially distanced and frequently sanitized luxury motorcoach operating out of Bend, Oregon. “Plan now, book later,” Johnson says. “Central Oregon is booming, and we’re trying to be as responsible as we can.”
