This is such a great little river town. The people are friendly and the climate is amazing. Not too terribly hot in the summer and the winters are mild. The rainfall is nice and the surrounding forest is green and beautiful. The schools are good, although most are quite old and need lots of repairs but the teachers are great.

Some of the best places to visit is the Rogue River for sure. There are rafting trips you can take. There are plenty of opportunities for fishing and the coast is only about 2 hours away if you want to go to the beach. The California Redwoods are nearby and the drive there is one of the most beautiful you will ever take.
