I feel privileged to have grown up in Ashland. It was the type of town where as a tween and teen I could safely run all over town! It is at nearly 2000 foot elevation, just below Mount Ashland. This is the last town on I-5 before crossing over into California. Current population is just over 20,000.

Another favorite experience was the Oregon Shakespearean Theatre. The motto for Ashland was "Stay three days; see three plays!" Ashland had the outdoor theatre when I was growing up but I wasn't able to find out if it is still operating. However, the plays do continue in the indoor theatre.
If you are ever in Southern Oregon it will be worth your while to stay a few days to explore. The shops and restaurants in downtown Ashland are unique and fun.
I hope you enjoy learning a little bit more about me this month!
