Oregon has many unique places to visit but one of the top destinations that often goes overlooked by seasoned travelers in Oregon is Thor’s Well.

Located along the Oregon Coast, near the town of Cape Perpetua is Thor’s Well. When you first visit this spot it’s easy to see why the spot earned it’s famous name because the natural sinkhole will make you think of something that Thor may have been banished to especially if you’re a fan of the recent Thor movies.  

The reality is that it is indeed a bottomless hole, and very dangerous, but when you’re safe on dry land it makes for the perfect spot for pictures.
