Harry & David Country Village

Southern Oregon

Medford's most famous tourist attraction is this outlet store of the giant mail-order fruit company. There are wine tastings and samples, and the over-the-top arrangements of the various products make this as much a sightseeing opportunity as a shopping destination. Tours of the company's nearby plant (four daily) start and end here; reservations are required.
