Ashland is a beautiful little town that attracts many tourists for weekend getaways. Since we are right on Lake Superior, there is great natural areas readily available to students.

The locals around Ashland are very friendly and really easy to get along with. I love living next to Lake Superior and my professor even got me interesting in fishing!

That's an interesting one. People around here are very friendly, you just have to get into circles where you can meet them. Ashland at first glance is rough around the edges, but people here open up quickly and want to take you under their wing. Or ride their horses. Or play piano in their church.
In a larger context, I absolutely love Washburn, which is the next town over. I would love to live there one summer!

Ashland is a beautiful town, there's lots of gorgeous scenery and trails in and around the area. There's plenty of things to see and do if you go outside for the day--and lots of areas to be close to the lake. The local people have all been really nice as far as I can tell, and everyone says hi and wears a smile on their face even if they don't know you. The shopping variety is lacking, seeing as the Walmart, Walgreens and other miscellaneous thrift stores are where just about everyone gets the things they need for living. Though the bakery and local food co-op are delicious.

Around the area are a lot of local and organic farms. This creates an atmosphere of people who care about where their food comes from and knowing their farmer. There is a food co-op, a local bakery, and a local coffee shop. These 3 places are all right next to each other and I would say its the hub of Ashland. We are also close to Washburn and Bayfield which are 2 towns that are full of little shops, farmers markets, and lakefront trails.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
