If you're looking for more nightlife action down the road from OSU, Portland is less than two hours away by car or train; you could also take Amtrak's Coast Starlight train down state Highway 99W for even more options at larger cities like Salem and Eugene along this route if you prefer urban excitement over small-town life!
