Situated just off I-5 in the midst of the beautiful Rogue Valley is the city of Talent. Located between Ashland and Medford, Talent offers a charming combination of small-town living and big-city amenities, including wineries, organic farms, and live theatre. The city also is also home to several popular restaurants.
The Talent Café on N Pacific Highway is famous for its excellent coffee, great ambiance, and enormous portions. Mei Sum Restaurant offers affordable Asian cuisine with a smile. For a real treat, check out the delectably unassuming New Sammy’s Cowboy Bistro on S Pacific Highway, which serves up mouth-watering entrees alongside one of the best wine lists in the country.
Talent’s nine city parks offer plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreations. Residents can play softball, basketball, tennis, and soccer at Chuck Roberts Park, skateboard at Old Town Park, or hike and bike on the Bear Creek Greenway. Picnicking, swimming, boating, hiking, hunting mushrooms, and relaxing take place at nearby Hyatt Lake.
The land around Talent is both scenic and fertile. Pears, grapes, cherries, and peaches are several of the region’s best crops. Population is approximately 6,066. Zip Code: 97540.
