Oregon is known for its forests and ocean views, but there is actually a forest within the ocean. The town of Boring, Oregon, has sister cities of Dull, Scotland, and Bland, Australia. It has been proven that money does grow on trees in Oregon. There is a tuff ring from an ice age lake bed in the state. Also, Oregon has many credits to its name including Bing cherries, tater tots, marionberries, and the Phillips-head screwdriver.
