Amidst all of the negative aspects of COVID19, we have come to realize that there are many things to look forward to once the quarantine is lifted. Here are five things to look forward to in Ashland that we hope will bring a little bit of joy to your day!
Eating Out Again
Date nights at Brickroom, a burger and a beer with friends at Red Zone or Louies, family gatherings at Callahans Lodge. If you’re like us, then you are probably looking forward to enjoying (and supporting) all of the amazing restaurants in town once quarantine is over. Of course, you may already be ordering takeout from many of your favorite Ashland restaurants, but we feel many will have a newfound appreciation for dining out once they can sit down and enjoy a meal outside the home once again.
Ashland’s Farmers Market, oh, how we miss you. The smell of freshly roasted coffee and donuts frying in the open air. The abundance of locally grown produce sold by friendly faces from around the valley. The strange, but familiar sites of people from all walks of life converging to support local farmers and artisans. There is so much to love about our weekly farmer’s markets and we cannot wait for them to return!
First Friday Art Walks
Like many of you, we are looking forward to strolling the galleries throughout downtown and the Railroad Districts enjoying good company, good wine, and taking in the amazing artistic creations on display from local artists.
Bumping Into Friends Around Town
Speaking of strolling through town, we are excited for more random encounters with friends and family as we go about our business around town. There’s something special about living in a city small enough that you’re practically guaranteed to run into someone you know when you leave the house.
Going To The Lake
I don’t know about you, but we’ve been missing the lake too. From fishing, rowing, boating, tubing, disc golfing, and walking around its beautiful shores, Emigrant Lake provides an escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. With summer quickly approaching, the lake is one place we plan to spend lots of time at once quarantine ends.
What else are you looking forward to Once Quarantine Is Over?
