Portland-based media firm MEDIAmerica, publishers of Oregon Business and the well-known 100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon survey, have announced the third annual 100 Best Fan-Favorite Destinations in Oregon for 2019.

This year researchers studied over 66,000 reviews, a 74% increase over last year’s reviews, on the most widely used online review sites Google, TripAdvisor and Yelp. Scores were tallied and combined to determine the level of travelers’ overall satisfaction. The scores were then ranked to create the 100 Best Fan-Favorites Destinations list.

The “100 Best” will gain valuable exposure in popular statewide magazines like Oregon Home, Oregon Business, both in print and online. Winners may also promote their achievement with exclusive rights to use the “100 Best” logo on their promotional materials and at point-of-purchase.

The top 100 destinations will once again be charted on a map for visitors and residents to use as a guide for traveling the state. A total of 75,000 statewide maps will be distributed in 2019 at most of the state’s entry points and visitor centers. The map continues to be very popular, according to our distribution partner, Matt Preston of Certified Folder Display Service Inc., who said “the 100 Best Fan-Favorite Destinations in Oregon brochure is a huge hit in the Travel Oregon Welcome Center program, which includes the PDX International Airport!”

“It is fantastic to see this project grow. Travelers rely more than ever on third-party reviews. The participation increase in this important research shows that more destinations are paying attention as well,” says Andrew Insinga, CEO of MEDIAmerica.

Craig Peebles, Events Manager at MEDIAmerica, adds “To be able to tally and merge data from the big three online review sites was not easy, but the result is worth it. A ranking based purely on customer satisfaction is a true measure of what makes a great destination.”
