Moon Oregon Trail Road Trip: Historic Sites, Small Towns, and Scenic Landscapes Along the Legendary Westward Route
by Katrina Emery Author
Experience the checkered history and gorgeous scenery of the Oregon Trail, from Independence, Missouri all the way to Oregon City, Oregon. You can take the full, 20-day drive, seeing all the historical sights along the way, or take in shorter sections that fit your schedule and plans. You'll see ruts left by pioneers' covered wagons, soak in the same hot springs as they did, learn about the Indigenous people who encountered them, the Black emigrants along the trail, and visit an underground city inhabited by Chinese-American pioneers. Tube down the whitewater of the Platte River, explore limestone caves, kayak around, visit museums and historic sites, and generally get a history education on your vacation.
