Traveling from the South over the Siskiyou Mountains, the first town over the California/ Oregon Border is home to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Southern Oregon University, 100 restaurants, 25 art galleries, and numerous B&B’s. A perfect blend of art, beauty, sophistication and beer!


Medford & The Rogue Valley is the stage of Southern Oregon, where fine wine and gourmet food are stripped of pretense and art abounds on every corner. Here a cast of small towns, each a distinct character, come together to put on countless great performances daily. A culture of passion and creativity, bursting with excitement, waits to welcome you to their small slice of the world.


The entire downtown area is on the National Historic Registry. This is a great place to explore history, attend the outdoor summer Britt Festivals, eat at award-winning restaurants, sip your way through wine bars, shop boutiques, and hike miles of trails.


If outdoor river adventure, viewing local artistry, wine tasting, antique shopping, charming friendly hospitality, exquisite cuisine, and visiting historic spots is what you are looking for….visit Grants Pass! Located on the Rogue River 90 minutes from the Southern Oregon Coast, it’s a 2-hour drive to Crater Lake National Park.
