"Roseburg and southern Oregon"
Roseburg's a great little town. If you're looking for exciting night life, thrill a minute and wild times....forget it. This is a place you'd want to raise your kids. It is strategically located where you can launch yourself to either the beaches of northern California upward into Oregon where the coast is phenomenal. Also, from there, you can visit the Mt McLoughlin area and take a tour of HWy 138 up to Diamond Lake and Crater Lake. The drive alone is worth the trip(s). People are genuinely friendly and helpful. Don't forget to check in with the tourism office. They'll give you some great ideas for places to visit, including wine tours, animal safaris and beautiful old covered bridges
"More on Roseburg area"
Drive east on hwy 138 toward Diamond Lake and Crater Lake. The mountain roads are really beautiful and you'll want to stop every mile to take a picture. Stop often and talk to the people who may be fishing on the Umpqua River. Get yourself a tourism map of waterfalls and covered bridges.
If you decide to see some of these falls, be advised that your digital cell phone may not work there. Be sure to go when others are visiting or have a companion.
"Roseburg area covered bridges"
Be sure to get a map of some covered bridges. They were built 70 years ago and according to local lore, bridges that are covered last longer than wooden bridges not covered. Unfortunately, most are one lane and now bridges are being made of steel and concrete.
