Celebrate National Travel & Tourism Week 

The travel and tourism industry directly supports the livelihoods of more than 15 million Americans, including more than 109,000 Oregonians.
This year, we’re celebrating "Travel Then and Now"—an opportunity to look back at the contributions and accomplishments of the U.S. travel community over the last several decades and celebrate our enduring ethos: welcoming visitors from near and far. It’s the perfect opportunity to dust off some old photos and use the hashtag #TBTravel when you post them on your social media channels.  
Check out the National Travel and Tourism Week Toolkit for ways to champion the value of tourism in your community. Thanks to you, the travel and tourism industry makes a powerful positive impact in Oregon.

Brand USA Microsite Launch 

Leveraging Brand USA's online platform, Travel Oregon and the seven regional partners developed and launched a VisitTheUSA global microsite in seven languages and 14 countries in April 2018.  All content is now available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, French, Korean and Japanese.  The sites will initially be marketed in five key countries with a $50k digital campaign leveraging Brand USA’s global media strategy for audience development. These sites offer international visitors rich and expanded content for all regions of the state.  
Highlights of the project include: custom navigation to regional information and new content highlighting itineraries, cities and experiences. To view the content, visit traveloregon.visittheusa.com.

North Coast Food Trail

The North Coast Food Trail, made possible through funding from Travel Oregon and Visit Tillamook Coast, with support from the Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce and Lincoln City Visitor Bureau, launched April 14 at Pelican Brewing in Tillamook, Oregon.
The trail’s theme of food, farm, fish and forage encompasses the region’s vast and diverse range of agriculture and recreational opportunities.
More than 60 businesses from Cannon Beach to Lincoln City make up the trail, ranging from agricultural to retail to restaurants. The first food trail of its kind in the state showcases how the area has welcomed a new generation of farmers, fishers, producers, harvesters, chefs and guide services who are drawn to the bountiful, beautiful, natural environment.​
