When you need a little vacation to unwind, there’s no need to go far afield; you can take a quick staycation right here in the state. Roseburg is a charming town that has lots of amenities and tons of scenic beauty.
The beautiful town of Roseburg is located in the southwestern part of the state, right off I-5. With around 22,000 residents, it's large enough to offer tons of amenities, but small enough that it has a real hometown feel.
Roseburg's downtown area is chock-full of local businesses, including restaurants, galleries, and shops. Take a stroll to do some window shopping, and grab a bite to eat.
One great dining option is Salud Brewery Bar, where you can enjoy a tasty meal, try some craft beers, and fill your growler.
The juicy burgers and loaded fries will have you mouth watering, and you'll enjoy creative microbrews, cocktails, and sangrias. Find it at 723 SE Lane Ave., Roseburg, OR 97470.
If you love wine, you've come to the right place.
Roseburg is home to more than a dozen vineyards, offering everything from pinot noirs and rieslings. And if you want to go even farther afield, you'll find another dozen or so vineyards in Roseburg's neighboring towns.
