I subscribe to several magazines and my best friend lives in Portland, Oregon, so I've always been in the habit of subscribing to magazines that are going to tell me about the state or place where I want to live or used to live at so I can learn more about the area. So there apparently are more than one magazine. I just want to know why the magazine is your favorite and what's so special about it?

If you are interested in rural issues, the Capital Press (published in Salem) is the best. It's an agricultural weekly that arrives every Friday in your mailbox.

Capital Press

If you are more urban, Willamette Week and Portland Monthly are both good.

Willamette Week
Portland Monthly

Portland Monthly is more upscale, aimed at people with money to burn. If you like rubbing elbows with the rich and richer, that is the rag for you.

All of the small newspapers around the state publish annual tourist guides, wine guides, etc. Mostly they come out in the spring. The local Chamber of Commerce probably has extra copies.

There is also 1859 (the year Oregon became a state) - I THINK they are still in business. Also Southern Oregon.

Both of those suffer from the problem of being aimed at the very well-off and being dominated by upscale actual advertising and upscale "soft advertising" (where an "artcile" reads like an advert). I stopped reading Southern Oregon when they included a 5 page spread about vacations in Bali, which they said was a "bargain" at only $1100 per night. Generally they feature articles about expensive housing and wineries.

The other amusing thing about Southern Oregon magazine is that you can buy it at Fred Meyer's for $8 or $9 bucks an issue or you can pick it up free at the Medford Co-Op in the free paper rack by the door.

Pretty sure there are a couple magazine about the coast, too - Oregon Coast and I forget what the other one is.

Sunset magazine has some Oregon-ish, Washington-ish stuff crammed in the edition that is supposed to be targeted at us (I think they publish 3 or 4 editions of Sunset, ostensibly tailored to different areas) but somehow mostly contains articles that really apply to the San Francisco and So Cal area.
