There’s Still Time to Go See Southern Oregon this February
If you’re planning a trip to Oregon in the upcoming months, or you would simply like to learn more about the great things this state has to offer, be sure to check out GoSeeOregon.com. Each month we ask visitors and residents what sights, activities and places they recommend in Oregon. In February we are looking for recommendations for Bob and Kathy, a recently retired couple from San Francisco who are planning a trip to Southern Oregon. While you are visiting GoSeeOregon.com, write a tip or two about your favorite places in Oregon, and you may enter to win GoSeeOregon’s Tips and Treasures contest.
Judging from the many entries we received, it looks like the city of Ashland is one of the favorites: several Southern Oregon experts recommended the Ashland Springs Hotel, but if you come during the Shakespeare Festival, make sure to book your hotel room early, says Jenla.
Also in Ashland, thepiranha recommends getting the beer sampler at the Standing Stone Brewing Co and says: “Unlike some brewpubs that offer samplers, the Standing Stone labels their brews so you know which one you’re sampling.”
Other places that are highly recommended include the Hellgate Jet Boat Excursions and the Rogue Creamery . Visitors stated that “The wild part (of Hellgate Jet Boat Excursions) is where the captain floors it …”
They also had great things to say about Rogue Creamery: “I visited the creamery in January and was very impressed that such a small operation could produce nationally and internationally recognized cheeses.”
Southern Oregon also awaits with great seafood restaurants like the The Crazy Norwegians Fish & Chips, where moondog found that “the daily specials are very good value and the crab melt sandwich has 1/4lb. of crab with your choice of cheese.”
