Centrally located among a number of historical, natural and cultural attractions, Medford is nestled in the beautiful Rogue River Valley on Interstate 5, midway between Portland and San Francisco. Outdoor enthusiasts can spend the day golfing, fishing, rafting the Rogue River, hiking the Table Rocks, visiting Crater Lake National Park, skiing Mount Ashland, venturing through the Oregon Caves or taking a quiet balloon ride over the valley. For those visitors interested in fine arts, Medford is host to the Britt Festivals, the Medford Jazz Jubilee, the Ginger Rogers Craterian Theater and is only a fifteen minute drive to the Ashland Shakespeare Festival. Spend a day downtown in historic Jacksonville antique shopping and be sure to leave time for Harry and David's County Village, the world's largest gourmet fruit and food gift company. Some of Medford's annual events include the Pear Blossom Festival, the Harvest Fair, the Ashland Independent Film Festival and the Jackson County Fair. Opportunities are endless in the heart of the beautiful Rogue River Valley.
