Roseburg is located on Interstate 5 in Southern Oregon's scenic
Douglas County. The community is nestled in a lush, forested region
known as the 100 Valleys of the Umpqua.
In many places, you'll find it hard to maintain a healthy
work-life/personal-life balance because the pace of one is
indistinguishable from the other. Not here. Life never stops here,
but it slows to an easy, welcome pace. A traffic jam means you
missed the yellow and have to wait for the next green. A terrible
parking space is the one across from the restaurant, instead of in
front of it. And the three words you may never hear are, "Wow,
that's expensive." Easy is the best way to describe life here.
Hard-to-beat works too.
