Review of Medford, Oregon

Medford is a Lovely Town to Nestle Into and Enjoy
Star Rating - 9/4/2021
My husband and I semi-retired here in 2014 after considering several around the same size in terms of population. We love the four seasons here as well as the gorgeous surrounding mountains as well as the easy proximity to the coast. Everything in Medford is about a 10 to 15 minutes drive away. We looked for homes in Ashland but they were extremely expensive for a small home so we broadened our search to southwest Medford and found a gorgeous 3-bedroom home on a half acre of land, which we landscaped for privacy. Jacksonville is only 15 minutes away; Ashland 25 minutes. We found it easy to make new friends here, which we deeply appreciate. There is as much or as little to do as you wish. We tend to enjoy cooking and having friends over but there are some delicious restaurants, too, like La Reyna Monarcha in Medford and Kobe in Ashland — two of our favs. Medford has a GREAT airport when we want to visit friends plus it’s a fun drive trip to the San Francisco Bay Area (5 hours) or Portland (3.5 hours) or the beach towns along the coast (3.5 hours). There are lots of beautiful hikes as well as really nice horse people for those inclined that way. Of course, there is skiing up on gorgeous Mt. Ashland and theatre in and around Ashland. All in all it’s a sweet, welcoming community.
