Tourism group offers state culinary guide

The Oregon Culinary Tourism Association has produced what the group is calling the first comprehensive, culinary-themed travel guide ever published for a state.

The 48-page, full-color, digest-sized booklet invites visitors to "Come to your five senses ... in Oregon." The Oregon Culinary Escapes Guide is a compilation of the best eating and drinking experiences in Oregon. It lists several of the state's best restaurants and wineries, as well as unique tours and trails - such as a chocolate lover's tour and the "Oregon Ale Trail."

The guide is also peppered with information about cooking schools, unique local foods, discounted lodging packages and related topics.

The guide has content suitable for leisure travelers, meeting and convention groups, as well as packaged tour operators, said Todd Davidson, CEO of Travel Oregon, the state's tourism office.

"Oregon has always been a pioneering state with so many of its policies and programs, Davidson said. `Oregonians are dreamers, but we're also doers.

`The guide will continue to set Oregon apart as a unique and memorable visitor destination, not just for leisure travelers, but also for international visitors, meeting/event planners and motorcoach operators."
