Or at least preferable to you, for whatever reasons.

Better beaches and beach towns
Better weather perhaps in the Willamette Valley and southern Oregon
Better college football team over the past 2 decades
Better state park system

"Better" depends on your values.

I am a Duck and like them both... except for UW.

I don't follow football, but I agree with the others.

We also have better wineries. There are some good ones in WA, but we just have more here. We also have more breweries.

No Sales Tax (?) = Less total cost to a 'consumer' type resident. Not so important to non-/ post consumers.


Are there any ways Oregon is better than WA?

Why do we go here? (is this Jr High?)

Of course everyone has a different opinion of 'What" is better for them in their current situation.

One must be dynamic and utilize each opportunity to their benefit.

Well that's good to hear. As this was an ask for what each individual commenters like, not "what do these states have to offer that I would like".
as some people thought for some reason.

I like that OR no longer charges a "Surcharge" at state parks for states they are having a spat with (As they did in 1970's and 80's)

Public access coast is a benefit for visitors. Doubt the residents are too happy about that.

So what is good for the goose (visitor), may not be desired by the gander (property owner / resident).

Same with 'land use' in Oregon.

Benefits the greenies, might not sit well with those inheriting or owning land.

Some days I'm a greenie.
Some days I am developing land.
Some days I am trying to help farmers pay their taxes.

So when in Oregon, I have to be a chameleon. (Pretty common species there)
