If you’re looking for a fun-filled vacation in a quaint American town, look no further than Medford, Oregon. Whether you want to hike through nature, or peruse a farmer’s market, this is the place for you and your family.
Just an hour’s drive from Medford is the Crater Lake National Park. Sinking below the ground more than a mile, this is the deepest lake in North America. The surrounding cliffs soar almost 2,000 feet above the lake.
Crater Lake was formed by a violent volcanic eruption nearly 8,000 years ago. Fed by rain and snow, the lake’s waters are pristine. This is truly a once in a lifetime destination.
Harry & David
Oregon’s climate provides ideal conditions for all sorts of delectable fruits. For 80 years now, Harry & David has become a staple for American grown fruits. Near the site, the aromas of freshly baked cookies and cakes fill the air. Providing jobs to the community and fresh, healthy treats is what makes this an All American tradition.
One of the most ornate and luxurious theatres in America, the Holly Theatre opened its doors in Medford in 1930. Surviving the Great Depression and a World War, this building is truly a testament to American ingenuity. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Holly Theatre is currently in the process of being restored to its original glory. Tours are still going, just don’t mind the dust.
