What Bert Has To Say About Medford Metro Area

Medford is historically an agricultural and timber processing center known for fruit growing (particularly its pears). More recently it has evolved as a cultural and residential crossroads between California and the Pacific Northwest. The city itself is fairly nondescript but has undergone some renewal and has a full complement of shopping and retail establishments popular with locals and Californians passing through to avoid sales tax. The timber industry is active but in long-term decline. Skiing, watersports, mountain biking, rafting, and hiking opportunities are abundant in the nearby mountains and Rogue River Valley. Ashland, 10 miles south, is a cute college town and arts community anchored by Southern Oregon State University and a renowned annual Shakespeare festival.
