Situated in a wide, sloping valley between two modest mountain ranges, Ashland rests just north of California, and about equidistant between San Francisco/CA and Seattle/WA.
Aside from fabled Shakespeare Festival, it has lovely Emigrant Lake, Southern Oregon University, and a marvelous Science Museum. Additionally, it is within easy driving distance to Jacksonville/OR’s famed Britt Summer Music Festival.
For most of us, tho, circulating around downtown fills time between plays: often to fill our tummies; find a place to lay our weary head; or, in grand American tradition, to spend money. Downtown Ashland offers “something for everyone”.
Essentially two long streets, “downtown” sorta starts where a bridge crosses Ashland’s Lithia Creek, and ends a few blocks further south at the library.
