Southern Oregon is a land of dramatic contrasts. Marked by spectacular mountains, deep lakes, rich valleys and arid deserts, the southern Oregon region extends from the California border, north to the shores of the Umpqua River. Mountain ranges hem in some of the region's most captivating valleys, providing lush countryside for hiking, camping, fly-fishing and river rafting.

The city of Ashland and Oregon's most southern ski area, Mt. Ashland. Known for its vibrant art community and many festivals, Ashland attracts visitors year-round.

North of Ashland is Medford, the hub of the Rogue Valley. Famous for its wines, cheeses and specialty products, it is situated near the stunning Applegate Valley and historic town of Jacksonville. On the northern tip of the Applegate Valley is Grants Pass, a starting point to exploring the historic Rogue River.

The southern region of Oregon is linked together by Interstate 5, the north-south corridor of the Western United States. The small country town of Drain marks the northern tip of the Southern Oregon region, accessible from all points north and south by Highway 5. To the west of Drain is the beautiful Umpqua valley and historic Elkton, gateway to Oregon's spectacular west coast.

World-class wineries and farmers' markets are hallmarks of Southern Oregon and are easily reached by Highway 5 and adjoining roads. Driving tours offer an interesting and enjoyable way to sample the many attractions and activities that comprise the Southern Oregon area.
