Harvest in Southern Oregon is the epitome of fall fun. The aroma of autumn is carried through the Rogue Valley, across apple orchards, whistling through corn mazes and rustling the orange, red and yellow leaves falling from the trees.
With numerous harvest festivals every weekend, freshly picked food and family-friendly activities, there’s no better time to visit Southern Oregon than in the fall.
