Visiting Southern Oregon
Find yourself in the stark beauty of Southern Oregon this spring. The quaint towns of the region shower visitors with seafood, wildlife viewing and incredible recreation. Brookings – a small town neighboring the Pacific Ocean – is settled along the Banana Belt of southern Oregon. Leave the heavy coats and scarves at home, because Brookings has unbelievably warm weather all year long. In southeastern Oregon, spring in the town of Lakeview is ideal for fishing, hiking and wildlife viewing. Lakeview is a gateway to the nearby Fremont National Forest and the shores of Goose Lake. See art, whales, geysers and antelope during your spring trip to southern Oregon.
Enjoy the Banana Belt’s mild climate in Brookings with a tee time at the Salmon Run Golf Course, or head to Port of Brookings Harbor for shopping and fresh seafood. Each month, Brookings hosts Second Saturday – a gathering of 10 art galleries providing food and live music during this festive artwalk on the second Saturday of the month. Experience a busy day on the Banana Belt, and stay the night at the beachfront Best Western hotel in Brookings.
To get the best out of Brookings, visit Sporthaven Beach for bodysurfing and whale watching. Find the beach along Boat Basin Road and take advantage of the free parking. Keep an eye out and a camera ready for Grey Whales from late March throughout April, or simply stretch out for a relaxing afternoon at the beach. Bring a picnic lunch to this sandy spot in Brookings, or suit up for body boarding during the summer and late spring.
Late May in Brookings is the 2011 Azalea Festival held over Memorial Day weekend. This 72nd annual celebration takes place throughout town and includes a street fair, parade, car show and of course, flower and plant shows. Inhale the fresh, coastal air and take home a souvenir or two from beautiful Brookings – “where the flowers meet the sea.”
If you’re heading into Oregon from the southeast, your first stop is Lakeview – “the tallest town in Oregon.” Visitors must see the "Old Perpetual" geyser, or the famed Albert Rim – just north of town along Highway 395. If you’re looking for a spot with convenient access to these attractions, try the Best Western hotel in Lakeview.
A spring visit to southern Oregon calls for a trip to the Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge – home of pronghorn antelope, California bighorn sheep, and more birds than you can spot. But if you’d rather be on your seat than on your feet, take a road trip down the Oregon Outback National Scenic Byway for a four-hour tour of majestic southern Oregon.
