Discover Southern Oregon On the Go

Southern Oregon is home to world-class fishing and rafting rivers, mountains for skiing, biking and hiking, and green valleys that produce award-winning wines. It's also home to North America's deepest lake and Oregon's only National Park, Crater Lake, which graces the back of Oregon's state quarter.

From the valley to the high desert, wildlife and nightlife share space. Southern Oregon is home to a pair of well-known attractions - the Britt Music Festival and Ashland's Oregon Shakespeare Festival - and to dozens of museums, art galleries, theaters, antique malls and tax-free shopping.

A ribbon of National Scenic Byways await, just a short drive from the California border. Follow the Redwood Highway to Grants Pass and the legendary Rogue and Umpqua rivers, where you'll find river adventures, jetboating, rafting, fishing and much more.

Discover Crater Lake National Park on the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway and experience the mountain lakes and world-class birding of the Klamath Basin and Oregon's Outback region.

History buffs will recognize the region as the site of Oregon's 19th-century gold rush, an era preserved within the boundaries of Jacksonville, a National Historic Landmark town.
