Explore Oregon 2022
"The Premier Summer Miata Tour Event"

July 7-10, 2022



"EXPLORE OREGON” is an annual premier multi-day event, organized by the Willamette Valley Miata club. Be prepared to enjoy some of Oregon’s most beautiful and historic scenery and explore the awesome back roads of the Southern Oregon Valley as we spend an incredible weekend in Grants Pass, OR.


Grants Pass -- Our destination

Grants Pass is where Pacific Northwest adventures begin! On the banks of Oregon’s legendary Rogue River, Grants Pass is among the greatest places in the American West for whitewater thrills, forest trails, fly fishing, friendly faces, and a dynamic local arts and entertainment scene. Come visit!

Grants Pass served as a stagecoach stop in the 1860's and became a rail head with the completion of the Oregon-California Railroad (now Southern Pacific) in 1884. The name was selected to honor General U.S. Grant's success at Vicksburg and the post office was established in 1865. Until after the turn of the century our name still retained the original spelling of Grant's Pass, using an apostrophe.



First hung on July 20th, 1920, the "It's The Climate" sign is a tribute to a great place to live, work, play and that we have great weather! The sign was an idea of local resident Mr. John Hampshire an engineer and road contractor. Arriving in Grants Pass in 1917, Mr. Hampshire started promoting the slogan he created, "It's The Climate", to all the local businesses. Mr. Hampshire received permission from the railroad (railroads owned most of the right of way in those early times), and he paid a sign company to create an "It's the Climate" sign. John Hampshire paid the entire cost of the sign, plus shipping, and donated it to Josephine County.

A city's heart and soul is its downtown and Grants Pass is no exception. In fact, with its National Historic District, outdoor Southern Oregon Growers Market, plenty of free off-street parking, and a new public restroom and visitor information office, downtown Grants Pass is very special. Long accustomed to low vacancy rates, the core business district of Grants Pass is alive with activity and opportunities for small businesses.

Grants Pass' Downtown is alive and thriving. Look around — from Antique Shops to Galleries to Restaurants, and Entertainment Venues, there’s always something to do and see in downtown Grants Pass.
