Best Places To Live and Work: Ashland, Oregon

Ashland may not have the steady work found in big cities across the border in California or further north in Eugene, Salem, or Portland, but, of all the communities on the lists of best places to live and work in Oregon, we are the smallest, and that’s a real testament to the entire community here. Most other small communities, especially ones as far from the big cities as we are, do not have nearly the draw to live and work.

Ashland has a lot to offer, especially to those looking to start a business or who work remotely. Known for its culturally sophisticated yet friendly small-town vibe, Ashland is a fun place to live and a wonderful place to raise your kids. With great schools and over 250 days of sunshine each year, the city is an ideal choice for families looking to settle in a mild climate with four distinct seasons.

With flights available to Portland, S.F, and Los Angeles – Ashland provides easy access for those who need to travel for work with all of the benefits of living in the tranquil foothills of the Siskiyou and Cascade mountain ranges. The ability to settle down in a small community surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty and access to world-class outdoor recreation are just a few of the many reasons why Ashland is one of the best places to live and work in the U.S.
