About

Oregon Resource Guide

The Oregon Resource Guide publishes semiannual magazines. Each magazine gears its focus toward new Oregon residents, veteran Oregonians, and out-of-state sightseers looking for new in-state adventures. We fill our pages with advertisers, in-depth articles about new hot spots and adventure opportunities. We distribute our magazines through hotels, visitor centers, restaurants, corporate offices, and other travel-friendly venues. Our collaboration with statewide chambers of commerce and visitor centers allows our publications to reach a wide audience and to ensure that our advertisers receive maximum exposure. We strive to give our clients a bold platform to display their bright qualities to newcomers, local residents, and travelers throughout the state so all readers will enjoy their Oregon experience to its fullest potential. We’re glad you’re here.
