Explore Oregon 2019
"The Premier Summer Miata Tour Event"
July 18-21, 2019
"EXPLORE OREGON" is an annual premier summer 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 Coast as we spend an incredible weekend in Gold Beach, OR.
Gold Beach - Our destination
Gold Beach is the county seat for Curry County and is located on the Southern Oregon coast at the mouth of the Rogue River, just 37 miles north of the Oregon/California border. Gold Beach is on the South side of the Rogue River while Wedderburn is on the North side, with both towns commonly referred to as Gold Beach. Jot's Resort is located on the North bank of the Rogue River bay in Wedderburn.
Gold Beach is within Oregon's "banana belt", a narrow stretch of latitude that experiences unusually mild weather all year long. The summer and winter mean temperatures differ by only about 10 degrees F. June through August temperatures average 58.3 degrees F while December through February temperatures average 47.7 degrees F. Average rainfall is about 80", most of which occurs in the winter. Summer months are mostly dry.
Gold Beach gets it's name from the fact that gold was discovered along the black sands of the beaches near the mouth of the Rogue River in the early 1850's. The settlement of miners shortly became known as Ellensburg. The name was changed to Gold Beach in Pot of Gold 171890, but the stretch of highway 101 that runs through Gold Beach is still named Ellensburg Avenue. Commercial fishing became a major industry in the 1850's. In the 1890's, sail and pole powered boats began taking mail to the small towns upriver. Eventually, these boats were motorized and began taking passengers. Now, these boats carry close to 60,000 tourists annually, and they still deliver the mail.
Jot's Resort is located in Gold Beach and on the Southern Oregon Coast. Easy to find, Jot's Resort is located on the bay of the Rogue River at the north end of Gold Beach's Rogue River Bridge — immediately off Highway 101. Take advantage of our extensive facilities, including:
