Oregon Travel Experience manages 29 rest areas across the state. Stop, refresh, sip some free coffee and support the local businesses and organizations represented there. We provide peace of mind and clean, safe rest areas. Our supervisors stand at the ready to help answer your questions or lend a helping hand. You can even take part in an online survey to let us know how we’re doing.
Feeling like you want to explore the area more? Travel Plazas are public/private partnerships between highly visible businesses and OTE. The plaza is centrally located and distributes travel literature to motorists, free of charge. Traveler services at these locations include restrooms, water, and attendants on duty, 24 hours per day, six days per week.
Oregon Travel Experience’s mission is to provide Oregon motorists with motoring information services through our varied programs such as travel information kiosks, highway business signs, TripCheck.com, and brochure programs. However, if you’re looking for other travel-related information not found on our website, we’ve provided internet links to to several of our travel and tourism partners.
