Rogue Valley, OR

This area is named for the legendary river that flows through it.

Once the favorite fishing spot of 1930s Hollywood elite (Ginger Rogers, Clark Gable), the Rogue River is nature’s playground. Visitors can hike along its shores, raft the Wild and Scenic section of rapids and spend the night at fishing lodges that were grandfathered in, and find solace in tranquil fishing holes, where it’s often just you and the osprey competing for the fall Chinook or winter Steelhead. 

In this area the arts are plentiful, with two award-winning festivals celebrating music and theater: The Britt Festival in historic Jacksonville and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland. Both towns, in addition to Medford, offer upscale, market-fresh restaurants, charming inns and bed and breakfasts, cafés and boutique shopping, and some 10 public golf courses. Just two hours away is North America’s deepest lake, Crater Lake.

Bend, OR 

Bend is the ultimate playground.

A small mountain town three hours east of Portland, Bend boasts a near-perfect climate, cosmopolitan sophistication, and some of the best outdoor adventure in North America. Sunny skies, limitless parks, recreation programs, fantastic schools and an economy that’s on the mend make Bend the perfect home base for families. What moms love most about living here are the countless opportunities for their little ones in a town that’s small enough to feel safe, slow-paced, supportive and incredibly friendly.
