An outlying suburb of Grants Pass, Redwood gets all the benefits of the nearby city with a little more space. An area that used to be supported by the timber industry, Grants Pass now depends on tourism. There is much to visit in the area, from the Rogue River to the Oregon Caves National Monument, to the Redwoods along Redwood Highway.
