Oregon Trip Ideas – July 2018

WELCOME TO FIESTA MEXICANA

An introduction to the Oregon Heritage Tradition.

Thirty miles south of Portland, Woodburn is perhaps most widely known for its rainbow of flowers at theWooden Shoe Tulip Farm and shopper’s haven Woodburn Premium Outlets. But if you venture further off Interstate-5, you’ll meet a friendly farming community that is a capital of Latinx culture in Oregon — a city that is 60 percent Latino and 83 percent among public schoolchildren. “It’s a bicultural, bilingual community,” says Anthony Veliz, who in 2000 became the first Latino elected to the Woodburn School Board. “We welcome all groups.”

For visitors, it’s a place rich with culture to discover — year-round but especially during the summer. Each August brings the three-day Fiesta Mexicana (Aug. 3-5, 2018), one of the state’s largest celebrations of Latino food, culture, art, music and community.

What to See in and Around Central Park

Manhattan’s Central Park is aptly named: the vast greenspace is a near-perfect rectangle in the center of the borough and a place for New Yorkers and visitors alike to spend time in nature. Here’s our guide to sights in and around the park that your clients won’t want to miss.
The design for the enchanting 843-acre (3,411,500-square-meter) park, which stretches from 59th to 110th Streets in Manhattan, was selected in 1858. Some of the park’s many landmarks include Belvedere Castle, Bethesda Fountain, Bow Bridge, Tavern on the Green restaurant and Strawberry Fields (a tribute to John Lennon).

Guide to the Brooklyn Historical Society

The Brooklyn Historical Society is one of the borough’s oldest cultural institutions, and the recent opening of a second branch has made it easier than ever for visitors to immerse themselves in the history of New York City’s most populous borough. The museum’s Brooklyn Heights location houses unique historical artifacts, portraits and landscape paintings that represent Brooklyn through the ages. The newer Dumbo branch highlights the area’s transformation from a 19th-century shipyard to its present incarnation as a hub for culture, food and technology. Combining a visit to either museum with lunch and a stroll through the neighborhood gives your clients the chance to experience the borough like local.

Oregon Trip Ideas – May 2018

HOW TO BRING OREGON’S MAGIC TO LIFE

Behind the scenes of the “Only Slightly Exaggerated” animated film

Shooting stars streak across the night sky as the sun sinks into the Pacific Ocean. Hot air balloons soar over wine country, grape vines unfurling beneath them. Wild horses stream through a desert canyon, and giggling children ride a giant rabbit through a vibrant field of tulips. This is Oregon, “only slightly exaggerated,” as depicted in a dazzling short film that we spent months producing with Wieden+Kennedy. In its first two weeks online, the video racked up around five million views on social media, and hundreds of commenters have asked us how the project came to life. Here’s the behind-the-scenes creation story.
