Southern Oregon is home to the rolling hills and vineyards of award-winning wineries, and unforgettable skiing, biking, and hiking trails. Southern Oregon is also the home of Crater Lake, Oregon's only national park, named for the deepest lake in America. While you are here, take advantage of all the rivers which are perfect for fishing, swimming, and Southern Oregon rafting adventures.
Instead of booking a cramped hotel room in Southern Oregon, stay in a vacation rental. A luxury cabin or condo rental offers easy access to your favorite outdoor activities and all the room you need to store your gear. Wake up to the sound of mountain birds and enjoy coffee on your private balcony. Then head out for a day of exploration and outdoor fun. Spend your days rock climbing, visiting historic sites, theaters, and local museums, or joining the fun at annual festivals like the Britt Music Festival and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland.
Here are few additional suggestions for your trip:
-Hike the trails: Experience legendary Southern Oregon camping areas and hiking trails through Klamath Basin, Oregon's Outback region, and Grant's Pass.
-Take a gold rush tour through Jacksonville: The entire town of Jacksonville, Oregon is designated as a National Historic Landmark due to its central role in the 19th century Oregon gold rush.

-Visit the southern coast: Experience the endless stretches of golden sand along the beaches of the southern coast. Go sailing, scuba diving, windsurfing, or deep sea fishing.
-Take a scenic drive: The Redwood Highway and the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway wind along the western shores of the state and make for a great scenic drive.
