Southern Oregon is its own natural playground. There's so much beauty to behold in the various trees, plants, and wildlife all around. And there's so much to experience in this community that's been planted in the center of it all.
Whether you're searching for adventure or seeking a more relaxing experience, here are some reasons why Grants Pass might be your perfect getaway.

The Rogue River runs through the heart of Grants Pass. Its beauty has been praised and featured in various films and novels. Some of which include Zane Grey's "Rogue River Feud," "Shooting the Rogue" and "Tales of Freshwater Fishing" novels in the '20s, the 1975 western Rooster Cogburn, and the 1994 film River Wild.
You can experience its beauty for yourself, either with a guided tour or on your own. Check out our Outdoor Adventures page for an extensive list of resources. Grants Pass offers many guided outfitters.

#4: Art & Culture
Grants Pass offers art & entertainment options to suit any taste.
