Dulcinea's Insight

  • Blogs are an excellent source for insider tips on a destination. Stop by Café Mama to learn her 10 favorite things about Portland, or use a blog search engine like Technorati to find other blogs full of hidden gems in Oregon.
  • When searching for information on Oregon, sometimes using broader search terms (for example, “Pacific Northwest”) in your favorite search engine can turn up even more relevant results. One such search found NWsource, a blog devoted to Washington, Oregon and British Columbia, with plenty of articles specific to Oregon.
