Oregon Bed and Breakfasts Draw Doodle Map of Must-See State Waterfalls for Socially-Distant Summer Adventures
More than two dozen bed and breakfasts come together to sketch a summer to remember and encourage travelers to hit the road and seize the summer with COVID-safe regional experiences
By: Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild
"If we've learned anything from this incredibly challenging time, it's to value experiences and relish in the safety and beauty of the great outdoors," said Sue Stein, president of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild, which is the professional association of Oregon's individually operated bed and breakfast inns, and the group that sketched the timely initiative.
The Oregon Trail of Waterfalls, as it's called, is a beautiful, limited edition, double-sided map illustrated by artist Victoria Buchkova. It's a huge piece of art measuring 24-inches across and 18-inches down. Each map will be carefully folded and mailed free-of-charge to travelers upon request, while supplies last.
The front of the map features more than 80 must-see waterfalls across the entire state, as well as nearby bed and breakfasts where one can reserve a room and stay. The B&Bs and waterfalls are in color, the remaining landmarks and terrain are in black and white, to afford adults an unexpected moment of quiet, and the opportunity to envision their own adventure and color their course.
The back on the map highlights various bits of information, like the many Oregon food trails, Instagram-worthy drives, popular in-state movie spots, and scenic bikeways – Oregon has the only Scenic Bikeway program in the United States with 17 routes that pedal across desert highways, geological wonders, and by the sea.
"We really tried to think of everything that would encompass a truly remarkable journey, from getting the map, to getting excited, to getting in your car, and getting here," says Stein. "Plus, we all know our areas so incredibly well, what we really created is the blueprint to the experience of a lifetime."
The B&Bs are clearly marked on the map in relation to the waterfalls, wineries, bikeways and byways, eliminating any guess work by first time travelers. In addition to the paper maps, the innkeepers have launched a website (www.OregonTrailofWaterfalls.com)
Each participating bed and breakfast is part of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild and is meticulously inspected for cleanliness, sanitation, insurance, and licensing. All of the B&Bs have nine rooms or less, reducing potential risk to travelers and maximizing the attention to detail.
