Frankly, the best of three would the one where you could find employment.

We've been buying most of our vittles in Grants Pass fer over four lustrums. I've only come across nice friendly folks. Haven't had any problem with anyone. But we live happily in the mountains to the northwest of GP.

The wife and I are seriously considering the Grants Pass area because the weather sounds fairly reasonable. We are in Socal now but have lived in Alaska for over 30 yrs. "We gotta get out of this place, if it's the last thing we ever do"
I have Raynauds Syndrome which affects my feet and a bad back with some serious stenosis so a reak cold climate is outof the question. It appears to be close enough to Medford for medical and we don't work cos we're retired. How does it compare to Bend, our other choice?

Usually in the winter Grants Pass is about 10 degrees warmer then Bend, maybe even 15 degrees, at times. GP is pretty mild. Might have a little snow a couple times in winter, but not much & melts quickly.

Dec, Jan is usually the coldest. I've seen a few days in Feb up in the 70's. We get breaks in the weather.

Thanks for the feedback. That's pretty much what I'm looking for. I was looking at Colorado but most of the places around maybe say Woodland Park or Florrisant had more snow that I want to put up with.
As long as I'm not working I don't need to worry about jobs.
Thanks again.
Fred

Bend can get VERY cold in the winter. I don't think it will meet your needs.

Rogue river rat: I just went to Grants Pass website and pulled up churches. There are over 47 churches in central Grants Pass. Just because you don't go doesn't mean a lot of others aren't
filling up the pew's.

Hi, I was just reading that Ashland or Applegate Valley are better places to live than Medford if you want to avoid the winter fog- how about Grants Pass? I also hear GP is greener and less sparse on trees than Medford. Is that true? The pictures look beautiful. We are hoping to move up from the central valley in California to be nearer family in Coos Bay. Naturally there will be mountains and evergreens, but I love valleys and arboreal trees and don't like to be too closed in- claustrophobic I guess!. Applegate Valley looks beautiful but I don't think we can afford to live there.

@1auntie. I live just north west of Grants Pass about 12 miles. We do get the winter freezing fog. Last few days it's been gone by noon and the skies are blue and beautiful!! I don't like the fog, but it's a trade off. I love the area and it's more reasonable (price) than Ashland or Applegate.
And YES we do have lots more trees than Medford!! Our property has a mixture of pines, oaks and madrones. I like the variety, too.

Default Fog in Grants Pass

Ok thanks so much. I was wondering if the fog there is like the stuff we get down here? They call it tule fog- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tule_fog. It makes it difficult/dangerous to drive at times. Is your fog a morning and evening thing? Is it very dense? How much of the year?
