Reasons Why Ashland Is A Great Place To Live
The website Niche—which ranks towns based on qualities such as housing, education, family friendliness and diversity—placed Ashland at #6 in Oregon for education. In a list overwhelmingly populated by neighborhoods and suburbs of Portland, the city of Ashland came in at an impressive 9th place for Best Public Schools in Oregon, according to the website Niche.
It’s The Cultural Capital Of Oregon
Today, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and the city of Ashland are inseparable. The presence of The Bard – and all the people who gather to stage his works – has made Ashland the cultural capital of southern Oregon, and perhaps the most vibrant small town in the state.
Between OSF and the Craterian Theatre, Ashland is on the map as a proprietor of world-class productions with a food scene to match. Before showtime, the numerous good restaurants and bars are buzzing with activity, emptying like clockwork as curtain call draws near. After the plays are over, bars fill up once more, mixing craft cocktails and pouring mugs of mead. While nightlife is the highlight, by day Ashland is nature’s playground, from local Lithia Park to the stunning Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument nearby. But, don’t take our word for it, here are 20 reasons why Ashland is known for being the cultural capital of Oregon.
It’s A Small Town With A BIG Personality
With just over 20,000 people calling Ashland home, you can really develop a sense of community here. And, though it may have small-town vibes, living in Ashland, Oregon combines the perks of living in a college town, thanks to Southern Oregon University, with the amenities and attractions of living in a popular tourist destination.
Simply Put, Ashland Is Beautiful
Nature abounds throughout Ashland, which is proud to maintain a well-developed network of parks and open spaces to play. There are nearly 1,000 acres of parkland and over 41 miles of trails to follow. The city itself is nestled in the foothills of the Siskiyou and Cascade ranges surrounded by forest, creeks, and a large lake.
Lithia Park, which wraps around the OSF campus and the plaza, is a mystical forest park that covers over 93-acres. Here you will find a crystal clear creek flowing along green-spaces spread with lush lawns and elegant landscaping, walking paths, tennis courts, playgrounds, duck ponds, a reservoir you can swim in, a Japanese Garden, and picnic areas. One can simply stroll through the park into downtown Ashland where you will find dozens of boutique shops, restaurants, galleries, and other lovely things to explore.
