Roseburg is smack dab in the middle of the state on Interstate 5.
Roseburg has a very expensive taxi service and a very inefficient public bus line. You're really better off driving, or for short trips, walk or bike! Roseburg is small enough to talk from the west city limit to the east in only a few hours...

The Douglass County Fair happens every year at the Douglass County Fairgrounds. I never really liked this event. Its always WAY too crowded for the small town, the rides are kinda lame, the barnyards smell and the live bands are boring at best... Not to mention that during fair week the traffic in the small town of Roseburg becomes horrid...

Travel up the North Umpqua River highway. It is a senic drive. The town just east of Roseburg is Glide --- it is the only place in the World where 2 river meet head-on (Little River & North Umpqua). Also, there is plenty of hiking along the river and if you like waterfalls,...
10eke's General Tip
We decided to stop to take a short walk in the wood. What looked really funny was the way fallen trees are handled. With chainsaws they cut away only the part that is blocking the path, since fallen trees are part of nature they are disturbed as little as possible.
