Medford is a mid-sized, growing rural/suburban city set in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. It is one of the warmest and driest cities since it is in southern Oregon, and has hot summers and not too cold winters. We boast a wonderful police force, low crime, excellent hospitals and a growing senior population. Within two hours you can find yourself at the Oregon coast, or up the hills to beautiful mountain lakes.

Medford is a wonderful place if you love the outdoors. Mountains, lakes, forests, and rivers are all within easy reach. Although Medford is in Oregon, it is not extremely rainy like the north of the state. Southern Oregon enjoys a Mediterranean climate that is characterized by hot, dry summers and mild winters.
