I am from the Bay Area in California and lived there my entire 65 years with a few exceptions of living a year here or there in other places. One of those was Corvallis and then Portland in my twenties. When my daughter needed to move from her Berkeley CA home, she suggested Oregon since she had been born there. We came to Ashland and looked at homes for her in Ashland, Talent, Eugene, Florence, and Medford. She found a darling house in Medford and bought it that day!
