Southern Oregon has many activities to offer and unique sights to see. It’s an area filled to the brim with history dating back hundreds of years preserved for your senses to experience. While on your downtime away from the course, here are some potential activities for you to plan for while on your downtime to make your visit to Southern Oregon a trip to remember!
- Visit the Oregon Shakespeare Festival – Taking the time out of your trip to go see a live showing of a play is not something you can do just anywhere. All summer the Oregon Shakespeare Festival will be having multiple showings of different plays, while the price range can vary, this isn’t an opportunity to pass up. With an intense attention to detail, each play will transport you to a different time and place if only for a couple hours. Some currently playing plays are: Once on This Island, Unseen, August Wilson’s How I Learned What I Learned, and The Tempest.
- Go Wine Tasting – Here in Southern Oregon, vineyards are vast in number, meaning that wine tasting is a must! You can schedule yourself a wine tasting tour at numerous vineyards and admire the scenery of the Rogue Valley.
- Day Trip to Lake of the Woods – Lake of the Woods was discovered in 1870, and over a hundred years later it’s still an amazing place to visit. Lake of the Woods offers many public beach areas for you to park and take a short walk down to. It’s a perfect place to cooldown for the summer or even to explore the surrounding woods! As in the name, there’s a dense forest surrounding the lake with public trails to go explore!
Get a Tour of the Oregon Caves – The Oregon Caves is a national monument located just east of Cave Junction. While the name is plural, it is one singular cave with numerous passages. Exploring the cave itself is guided, but just outside, there are a few other things to do like going for a hike and viewing wildlife. There’s a hiking trail that leads to the “Big Tree,” which is the widest Douglas Fir in Oregon!
- Hike Both Upper and Lower Table Rock – Created by a lava flow around seven million years ago, these two plateaus are now popular hiking trails known for their abnormally flat surfaces! Home to many different species of wildlife, going for a hike here will ensure a unique experience with different sights to see and an outstanding view of the valley at the top. Upper Table Rock is around 3.2 miles while Lower Table Rock is 6.2.
