Lose your head and find your heart in Southern Oregon. This vast region encomapsses a top-notch Elizabethan outdoor stage at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the up-and-coming wine-growing regions of the Umpqua and Applegate valleys, and, to the east, Crater Lake. If you decide to spend your Oregon vacation here, don’t forget to float the Rogue, attend Paisley’s famed Mosquito Festival, tour some Southern Oregon caves, wine taste in rustic Roseburg and explore Ashland’s chocolate culture. And if time permits, make a day of it at Mt. Ashland either skiing or snowboarding.
