Sure, summer vacations are nice, but have you ever tried packing your bags for a winter getaway?
After the holidays, airfares and hotel prices start to drop dramatically, especially since most of us have used up our vacation days and aren’t planning on traveling too much. But perhaps, if you are one of the lucky people who racked up some extra paid leave, you might be able to swing an incredible trip for not too much cash. If you’re traveling domestically, it’s more possible than you think.
Frankly, we can’t think of a better cure for the winter blues than jet

Who wins in a battle of sharks versus orcas?
I took my 7-year-old grandson Brendan to find out at Newport’s Oregon Coast Aquarium. It’s a great place for a family getaway in November, an otherwise awkward month for adventure, when it’s too rainy to hike, too stormy to play on the beach, and not yet snowy enough to ski.
The aquarium has both indoor and outdoor paths, more than a hundred sharks and a free marine science center next door.
Trista Baxter gave us the inside story. Trista is the shark lady, a vivacious marine biologist who has previously worked

The Oregon Coast Chamber Orchestra opens the 2018-2019 concert season with a Fall program featuring works by immigrants to America and children of those immigrants. The new citizen artists took full advantage of the opportunities presented by an accepting America to celebrate the human spirit through music and song. Simultaneously America’s growing global cultural presence enabled them to reach a world population eager to embrace their talents and devotion.
Selections from orchestral composers Sergei Rachmaninoff, Eric Korngold, Victor Herbert, Persy Grainger and Igor Stravinsky make up the first half of the program, while popular favorites from Leroy Anderson, Pete Rugolo, Henry

Three Salem, Oregon-area restaurants suffered fires this summer, but one was particularly devastating. It reduced Squatchy’s BBQ, a food trailer opened by a U.S. Army veteran less than a year earlier, to a hunk of twisted metal.
Nothing was salvageable.
But an outpouring of generosity from hundreds of

Though the Hoxton has plans for a rapid U.S. expansion over the next six months, it really is no surprise that the ultra-cool U.K. based hospitality group set its sights on increasingly cool Portland for its first West Coast outpost. Hot off the heels of the Hoxton Williamsburg opening in September, the Portland property is set to make its stylish debut next week in the city’s up-and-coming China Town area.
Flanking the ornate, classically Chinese gates to the neighborhood, the Hoxton has given a much-needed makeover to the historic Grove Hotel, a low-slung structure built in 1906
