Oregonians love their four-legged friends. At 5.7 per 100,000 human residents, Portland boasts more dog parks than any other city in the country.

And no problem when you need to grab a bite: around 350 restaurants across the state allow dogs to dine with their owners. No leash laws hamper pups on Oregon’s public beaches, and in Oregon, all the beaches are public. So let those (well-behaved) dogs run free. Oregon could replace the state’s current motto – “she flies with her own wings,” – with “dogs are welcome here.”

There are thousands of pet-friendly cabins in Oregon. So before you go crazy trying to sort through them all, check out this list of the best pet-friendly rentals in Oregon from every corner of the state to explore the state with your best furry friend. You’ll be like Lewis and Clark, with a little more fluff and fur.

Rockaway Beach was incorporated as a beach resort in the early 1900s.

And while you can get there pretty easily by car now, you can still travel like it’s 1900 on the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad. It offers visitors a chance to travel by steam train along 46 miles of original track with spectacular views of the coast.
