When you start planning a vacation, your first thoughts may not immediately think about going to Oregon. While it isn’t considered a ‘vacation’ state, there is so much more to the state that is forgotten about and can be a great vacation spot for families or couples looking to get away from their own home towns. From the attractions to the weather, there are many different reasons to choose Oregon as a great vacation destination.
- Do you like water adventures? In Medford, the famous Rogue River offers all sorts of different activities that involve water and can be a great spot for families to spend some time outdoors. The scenic location can be great for hiking, rafting and fishing. They offer rentals for anything you need, from rafts to kayaks and shuttles to help you get around.
- There is a historic theater located right in Medford called the Craterian Ginger Rogers Theater.
