The Oregon Coast Visitors Association, on behalf of Travel Oregon, encourages all residents of Oregon to fill out the Resident Sentiment survey. The survey asks about residents’ perspective on tourism across the state, and the feedback will help shape the future of tourism in the communities represented. The short, anonymous survey is open until February 1, 2024, and respondents will be entered to win up to $1,000 in Amazon gift cards. 

Travel Oregon shared that “Resident sentiment surveys enable us to lead with a stewardship approach and help us work towards truly sustainable tourism. With your assistance and efforts, we hope to collect enough responses to report findings at the county level, with the ability to drill down to smaller geographic areas as needed. Partial results will be presented at the Governor’s Conference on Tourism in March and full results will be available in April on the industry site.” 

It is important that this survey be representative of a high pool of responses, especially from less dense population areas that face a unique set of challenges and circumstances, like many small towns on the Oregon Coast. 

You are invited to share this survey with Oregon residents via social media. Visit the Travel Oregon industry landing page for more details and resources. If you have questions, they can be directed to research specialists Hannah Hicks:, or Javier Parada Torres:
