Medford is a great city with plenty of job opportunities. Most of the religious organizations here are welcoming and friendly and it's a nice neighborhood to live in. Medford does need to have more Mental health care facilities, along with better medical doctors, and more restaurants.

Medford is a decent sized town with many churches, bars, parks, and plenty of stores to get your shopping done. Depending on your interests, you are sure to find something that you enjoy doing in town.
Medford has a great small town feeling. I think that they may need to add a few more local businesses to complete the town. You feel very welcome being in Medford!
