Oregon Travel Planning
Could Oregon be the best hidden gem travel destination in the United States?
I believe so.
Oregon is, honestly, magic. I’d love to help you discover the diversity of landscapes and experiences in this stunningly beautiful state, where there is truly something for every kind of traveler.
As your personal Oregon travel agent, I specialize in planning journeys that capture the spirit of Oregon, from the serene vineyards and relaxed fine dining of the Willamette Valley to the dynamic streets of Portland, the breathtaking Oregon Coast, the adventurous Hood River, and the outdoorsy and artsy Bend. Let’s plan a journey that explores the best of Oregon’s wine, food culture, and natural splendor. And maybe we could tiptoe into Washington, too?
Exclusive Access and Local Insights
I first came to Oregon in 2014 as a wine tourist, then fell in love with the area and moved my whole life to create a business in the Willamette Valley. I understand what draws travelers to this region and have spent years seeking out the most inspiring experiences available while building relationships with the area’s best restaurants, wineries and lodging providers. Want to know where to find the best burger in the Willamette Valley? I’m here to serve (and taste-test).
With my local insider knowledge, you’ll gain access to special experiences that lie off the well-beaten track. Looking for private wine tastings with local winemakers, strolls through family-run vineyards, hotels with a huge fireplace in the lobby and meals prepared by James Beard-nominated chefs? I’ve personally had these experiences and, as your personal Oregon travel agent, know exactly how to plan them for you.
