Beautiful, clean county like living. We live 1 mile outside of the little town of Jacksonville which is super quiet. A little outside of town is quiet, clean and filled with nature. Jackosnville has a cute downtown shopping area with a few restaurants. It's all pretty expensive and well suited for tourist. The fall/winter is amazing and summer is too hot! Super hot ( around 114 degreesa at its hotest) and sometimes there are nearby wild fires. Lots of community events, farmers market, and only Ray's for grocery shopping.

We moved to Jacksonville because the community here is exactly what we were looking for. We just started our family, with our child being 11 months old, and we love that we can take him around town in his stroller and feel safe and at home. Everybody has been so friendly and welcoming here. We've enjoyed learning more about this historic town and enjoying the coffeeshops and restaurants here. I'm glad to be giving back to this community by working at the Jacksonville Elementary this fall with the awesome staff of dedicated community leaders and teachers.
It's been a wonderful place to grow up. Quiet, beautiful, away from the bustle and noise of Medford but close enough to get there in under ten minutes. This is perfect for raising a kid or retiring in, but leaves much to be desired if you're a young adult looking for opportunity. It was lovely being able to have all of my elementary school friends within bicycling distance, as the town's just over a square mile large. I think we're going to see some more gentrification, as the boom of vineyards and wineries is attracting wealth. The population has grown from 2000 when I was born to about 2900 twenty years later. Great and accessible hiking trails, and the Britt Music festivals bring a massive and lively tourist boom during the summer.
