Cultural opportunities abound with Jacksonville's own Chinese New Year Celebration beginning on February 8th. Local wineries are pouring award-winning wines in their beautiful tasting rooms with scenic views. Enjoy hiking on Jacksonville's Woodland's eleven miles of trails with flowing creeks, see deer, wild turkey and a wide variety of birds that are out and about foraging for their daily meals.
Whether you choose to sip wine by a raging fire in an historic inn, explore the woodlands, shop, dine or discover our unique history; winter in Jacksonville has it's own brand of magic.
Nestled among rolling hillsides of evergreens, at the entrance to the Applegate Valley Wine Country, lies the historic town Jacksonville.
Having preserved its gold rush roots from the 1800s, it is one of few towns able to boast its designation as a National Historic Landmark. Take in a little of our history by strolling the old cemetery, or riding the trolley to view the many historic homes and landmarks.
The quaint brick and wooden buildings now house an eclectic mix of shops, plentiful restaurants, spas, and unique lodging— not to mention fantastic wineries dotted along the valley. The Woodlands Trail System offers you a chance to take in the scenery, learn some history, and enjoy our fresh air.
Jacksonville will dazzle and surprise you with our amazing selection of the best of what you love.
