Medford Oregon Hotels. Medford is centrally located for visiting some very popular attractions in southern Oregon.
Medford is located in the middle of the Rogue River Valley. It is just a five-mile drive to Jacksonville, an old gold rush town that has kept its romantic wild, wild west charm and is one of the must see's in southern Oregon. Jacksonville is home to the Britt Music Festival which runs from the end of July to the first week in September.
It is a 77-mile drive to see spectacular Crater Lake, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. If you forget your camera on this trip, you will just have to go back and get it or buy another one. Crater Lake is not open for cars during the winter months. Check to make sure the snow has been cleared before you start out.
Medford is a good place to stay if you are visiting the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland. Ashland is about 17 miles south of Medford. Ashland does have several hotels but they can fill up during the high theater season. Staying in a hotel in Medford is your next best bet.
While you are in southern Oregon take a fantastic rafting trip on the Rogue River to Agnes. It's a 64-mile trip with scenery you will never forget.
