Ashland offers year-round culinary, cultural, and outdoor opportunities for you. Nestled at the convergence of the Cascade and the Siskiyou Mountain ranges, 15 miles north of the California border, Ashland serves as the gateway to Southern Oregon. Home to Southern Oregon University and America’s oldest Elizabethan theater, Ashland’s long cultural history is built upon natural beauty, theatre, education and wellness.
Contributing to Ashland’s rich history is Lithia Park, Southern Oregon’s first park established in 1908, covering 93 acres right off the Plaza downtown. Come experience it for yourself. Whether your travel interests are culinary, cultural or outdoor, Ashland has something for everyone.
