Welcome to La Grande

The Oregon Trail crossed this valley, and the pioneers rested here in preparation for traversing the challenging Blue Mountains. Some saw the valley's agricultural potential and its pretty Grande Ronde River, and decided to settle down instead. Today La Grande is home to Eastern Oregon University and provides services to the region; it also offers a surprising wealth of outdoor recreation, though the city itself isn't all that memorable.
