Ashland defines what a small town should be: close-knit, welcoming, artsy, charming, and full of great local eats and shops.

Situated in the southern section of the state right near the border of California, you'll also find natural beauty everywhere you look here. Indeed, a vacation here is exactly what you need.
What do you like to do? If greeting the great outdoors is on your mind, go wander the 93 acres of forested canyon-land that is Lithia Park. If you wish to camp, Emigrant Lake County Park is an exquisite spot, though it's worth noting that Ashland hotels are quite comfortable. If you want to be inspired by science and technology, the visit the ScienceWorks Hands-On Museum, and have some fun as you learn. And if you desire to learn a little local history, tour the Hargadine Cemetery, which is now a national historic place. When it comes time to rest, don't worry, because hotels in Ashland, Oregon, are waiting to accommodate you.
