Are you planning on taking a road trip to Oregon? If so, there are a wide variety of cool and unusual places in the state that you can explore throughout a 3-day road trip.

In this article, we will provide you with a list of some of the coolest and most unusual places in the state of Oregon.

#1 – Thor’s Well

Located on the Oregon Coast, a few miles from Cape Perpetua, Thor’s Well looks like something out of a science fiction movie and it’s been classified as a natural wonder because it’s an ancient sinkhole that’s sucked water into it for generations.

How deep is Thor’s Well? Scientists have said that it’s roughly 20 feet deep. Thankfully, it can be enjoyed from the safety of land and it’s something that shouldn’t be missed, especially during the winter and spring months when the Oregon Coast gets some crazy surf.

#2 – Proxy Falls

Head over to McKenzie Bridge in Central Oregon for Proxy Falls, one of the coolest waterfalls in the State of Oregon because the cliff has been cut and shaped by mother nature for centuries and the result is a fantastic scene that is frequently one of the most photographed spots in the state each year.

#3 – Octopus Tree

Another unusual attraction to check out during a road trip in Oregon is the Octopus Tree, it’s located at the state scenic viewpoint in Cape Meares and has been a place that people have stopped for generations because the tree has three trunks and resembles an octopus.

#4 – Painted Hills

If you’re in Eastern Oregon for the weekend, head over to Mitchell to check out the famous Painted Hills that are located in the famous John Day Fossil Bed.

What’s great about the painted hills is that each time you visit there you’re going to see different colors in the landscape because of the hues and tones in hills, especially after rainfall or winter storms.

Besides the destinations mentioned in this article, some of the other places you should visit include Cathedral Park in Portland, the Enchanted Forest in Turner and Lost Lake in Salem.

There are hundreds of cool and unusual places to visit in Oregon! Start planning your trip now so that you can add some of these great destinations to your trip.
