Destination Oregon: Historic Town of Jacksonville

What has 2800 residents, 30 independently-owned shops, 13 restaurants and looks just like it did in the 1970s? In this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave Jones takes us to the historic southern Oregon town of Jacksonville.

Thanks to the folks in Jacksonville for welcoming us with open arms. A special thanks to our Destination Oregon sponsor, Bi-Mart, for giving us the time and resources to take you to some of the most interesting and historic places across our state every Thursday night in a new edition of Destination Oregon.

Destination Oregon: The Prodigal Son Brewery

Pendleton is probably best-known as the Round-Up cowboy town and some might also call it a “Bud Light” town when it comes to quenching an eastern Oregon thirst, but the times are changing.

For this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave Jones takes us to a brew pub in Pendleton that proves you can go home again.

Thanks to the folks at The Prodigal Son for showing us around and a special thanks to our brand new Destination Oregon sponsor, Bi-Mart, for giving us the time and resources to take you to some of the tastiest and most interesting destinations across our state every Thursday night on Central Oregon Daily.

Destination Oregon: Exit 33 Rest Stop in Central Point

When traveling up and down Interstate 5 in western Oregon, there are dozens of rest stops. In this week’s Destination Oregon report, Dave Jones takes us to what might just be the best of all those rest stops, if you like chocolate, cheese and wine.

Thanks to the folks at Lillie Belle Farms Handmade Chocolates, Rogue Creamery and Ledger David Cellars for showing us around and join us every Thursday night for another new edition of Destination Oregon.

Destination Oregon: Smithfields Restaurant

“Beef… It’s what’s for dinner.”

We’ve all heard that marketing phrase, but in Ashland there’s a restaurant that takes that sentiment to the exotic and delicious extreme with all kinds of meat. For this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave Jones takes us to Smithfields Restaurant.

Thanks to the folks at Smithfields Restaurant for showing us around and join us every Thursday night for another new edition of Destination Oregon.

Destination Oregon: Jacksonville Inn

The southwestern Oregon town of Jacksonville is like a time capsule from the 1800’s. Located a few miles west of Medford, the town’s crown jewel has provided food and lodging to presidents, political figures and regular folk for more than a hundred years.

In this week’s edition of Destination Oregon, Dave Jones takes us to the iconic Jacksonville Inn.

Destination Oregon: Immersion Brewing

They say Bend has more microbreweries per-capita than any city in America. One of those craft breweries not only makes beer, but they invite you to come and make your own beer.

That’s all it took for our Dave Jones to grab the Destination Oregon crew and head down to Immersion Brewing, where you can “brew-it-yourself.”

Thanks to the folks at Immersion Brewing for showing us around. Join us every Thursday night for another new edition of Destination Oregon where we take you to some of the most beautiful and interesting locations around our state.

Destination Oregon: Moonlight Snowshoe Tour

In our weekly Destination Oregon, Dave Jones usually takes us around the state. However, this week he takes us along a winter activity that attracts people from all over the state, to right here in our own backyard. Bundle up–we’re going on a moonlight snowshoe tour with Wanderlust Tours!

Thanks to Dave for that adventure and thanks to Wanderlust Tours for showing Dave what to do. Catch a new edition of Destination Oregon every Thursday night on Central Oregon Daily.

Destination Oregon: Lincoln City Culinary Center

A visit to the Oregon Coast can mean walking along the beach, building sand castles or whale watching, but for some folks, it can mean improving your skills in the kitchen. In this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave Jones takes us to the Lincoln City Culinary Center.

Thanks to the folks at Lincoln City Culinary Center for showing us around. Join us every Thursday night for another new edition of Destination Oregon where we take you to some of the most beautiful and interesting locations around our state.

Destination Oregon: Captain Dan’s

In business, you sometimes have to look for things that set you apart from your competition. Something that makes the customer remember you.

For this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave Jones takes us to a business on the Oregon Coast where they’ve taken that theory to the extreme.

Thanks to the folks at Captain Dan’s for showing us around. Join us every Thursday night for another new edition of Destination Oregon where we take you to some of the most interesting places in our state.

Destination Oregon: The Oregon Clam Chowder Trail

The website “Only In Your State” lists something called “The Ultimate Oregon Clam Chowder Trail.” When Central Oregon Daily’s Dave Jones caught wind of this he immediately volunteered his Destination Oregon crew to explore this ‘clam chowder trail” along the Oregon Coast.

For this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave takes us to two of the stops along this tasty trail.

Thanks to the folks at Pelican Brewing and Gracie’s Sea Hag for showing us around and join us every Thursday night for another new edition of Destination Oregon where we take you to some of the most beautiful and interesting locations around our state.
