Southern Oregon: It’s towns, areas, activities, things to do and more!

Jackson and Josephine Counties are a splendor to behold and features some of the best outdoor activities, world renowned events, and some of our local businesses create some of the best artisan foods in the world! The history of the Rogue Valley is much like all of the Western territories beginning with the opportunity to find gold along the wild rivers of North America. This too called many to settle in this beautiful state. Gold mining, panning, and dredging are still activities locals and adventurers participate in. The timber industry also gave industrial life to the area. Now, recreational activity and tourism come secondary to the large medical facilities that provide over 9000 jobs in the Rogue Valley.
