Visiting Oregon

Combine work with a holiday in Ashland Oregon, home of the world renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Southern Oregon University with its diverse art department, art galleries and the Schneider Museum. Ashland supports dozens of fine art and crafts galleries, artisan wineries, micro breweries, artisan award winning cheese and chocolate shops and fine restaurants serving traditional, ethnic and the new fusion foods. The Rogue River Valley offers scenic beauty with many outdoor activities such as salmon and trout fishing, white water rafting, as well as easy to challenging biking and hiking on the many marked trails in the local parks and recreational areas. Famed Crater Lake, the beautiful Oregon coast and the Redwood National Park are a day trip away.
