I think that is a loaded question with any community but you can always get report cards on the schools nearby as well as crime statistics. As Lana said it will also depend on the activities your family is interested in but like Portland Metro, Salem / Keizer is fairly central to just about any family activity imaginable.
I work with a great agent in that area feel free to contact me if you need a referral or have any questions on VA financing.
As a parent I appreciate that we have little traffic here (although that is relative). I like that I rarely have to drive more than 15 minutes to get my kids to their activities.
The biggest issue in Salem for parents is the schools. They have been hit really hard with budget cuts and classroom sizes are really large. I don't know the impact down in Medford but it has been hard up here.
