Make the Rogue Valley your home
The first thing you see crossing into Oregon from California is the beautiful Rogue Valley. Named for the mighty Rogue River, the valley follows the Interstate 5 corridor from the city of Ashland, known for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Southern Oregon University, to the historic town of Wolf Creek at the valley's northernmost tip. Along the way are dozens of communities bristling with local culture, history and recreational opportunities, from skiing at Mount Ashland to rafting or fishing the Rogue. From enjoying the art galleries of Jacksonville and Ashland to hiking wilderness trails in the Siskiyou and Cascade mountain ranges. From wine tasting in the Applegate Valley to fine dining in Medford. There's something for everyone.
