Is Gold Beach walkable say to shopping or hospital for work? Or will I need to rent a vehicle?
I'll repeat the question: how are you getting to Gold Beach without a car? Medford is not anywhere near Gold Beach. And without knowing where you'll be living and where you will be working how could we possibly answer your question? If, for example, you'll be doing seasonal work at TuTuTun, you'll be miles upriver from the coast highway.
