Travel Tips from people who've been to Medford
Stay at the Red Lion or the Rogue Regency. Must try Noho's for great Hawaiian cuisine. It tastes devine and you will not walk away hungry. Open for lunch and dinner but better call for reservations for dinner. I don't think it is open every day of the week so - good idea to call ahead anyway.
Medford is kinda like any other midsized suburban city in the US. There's nothing really interesting there, but there's lots of interesting places around it. Just like any other town it has it's own character. I would suggest Ashland or Jacksonville if you're looking for something interesting, if you're looking for local interaction you'll find it, just probably not anything out of the ordinary.
McGrath's Fish House is an excellent option for good tasting affordable seafood in Medford. We stop there every time we pass through the area. On most trips, we try to overnight in a location with decent food. They also have a terrific selection of beers.
