Memorial Day weekend is almost here; the weekend that the official countdown to summer begins. Then it's just a few weeks more until the days stretch out before us and the glory of an Oregon summer arrives.
Make this the year that you finally check off your bucket list of Oregon must-see attractions. The best way to experience Oregon is by driving through our lush forests and along our scenic coastline. What better way to get there than in an RV?
Here's our must-see Southern Oregon summer travel list. Rent an RV from us this summer and experience it for yourself! This whole trip is just under 600 miles and will take you about 14 hours to drive round trip.
Ashland Shakespeare Festival
Start with a visit to historic Ashland, Oregon, only a short three-hour drive from Junction City where our RV Rental store is located. Ashland is world-renowned for its annual Shakespeare festival. While you're there visit the Black Sheep for a bite to eat or stop in the many bakeries and shops. Local RV parks are just blocks to downtown and are within walking distance to most attractions.
If you're up for a fun adventure, stop in Grants Pass on your way to Ashland. If it's a sunny day, the Rogue River is a must-see. Not only is it majestic and teeming with fish and surrounded by wildlife, it is also the home of Jet Boat River Tours. This will be the most fun you've had on a river!
After a weekend enjoying the theater in Ashland, head over to the Oregon Caves and discover the rich culture and history of one of Oregon's best-kept secrets. From the natural beauty of the igneous rock formations to the beautiful Cliff Nature Trail, you'll be glad you stopped to see this local jewel. Stay at the Lone Mountain RV park while you're there.
Gold Beach, Oregon
For your last stop, cruise on over to the gorgeous Oregon Coast and stay in Gold Beach.
Known as the sunniest spot in Oregon and Washington and located in Oregon's “banana belt,” Gold Beach offers fun all year round where the river meets the ocean.
Complete your trip by driving up scenic Highway 101 and return via Florence to our friendly RV rental counter at Guaranty RV Super Center.
