• rogue valley


    The great outdoors is never more than a few minutes away in beautiful southern Oregon, where residents can choose an urban or a rural lifestyle and still enjoy the best of both worlds.

    The Rogue Valley includes more than a dozen distinctive small towns-all with their own festivals and celebrations. Forested slopes that provide abundant hiking, hunting, fishing and other recreational opportunities ring the entire area. More than a dozen golf courses are located throughout the Valley, including one designed by Robert Trent Jones that is located right here in Eagle Point.

    The Rogue Valley is a prosperous, progressive region served by an international airport and connected to the world by a growing technological infrastructure. 

    Southern Oregonians enjoy a unique lifestyle that combines the best of the country and the city.



    Ashland, a mountain town just 12 miles south of Medford, offers nationally acclaimed theater through its Tony award-winning Oregon Shakespeare Festival, as well as an eclectic mix of fine art and specialty shops in its colorful downtown. Just a few miles south is Ski Ashland, a community-owned enterprise that provides downhill thrills for skiers and snowboarders.



    Medford, the heart of the Rogue Valley, with its abundant and perse shopping opportunities, is a mecca for retail shoppers throughout a nine county region. Lovers of culture and entertainment are also drawn to Medford, where first-class venues such as the Craterian Ginger Rogers Theater and the Britt Festivals in nearby historic Jacksonville boast world-class acts. The annual Medford Jazz Jubilee invigorates young and old alike.



    Jacksonville, just four miles from Medford, is a scenic drive through fertile orchards and vineyards. Founded amid the frenzy of gold seekers in 1851, this gold rush town is filled with more than 100 historic buildings and a main street right out of the Western movies.
