I loved to Ashland because I heard great things about their schools system. Not only has their school system met expectations but the community has blown me away.
Ashland is a safe place and healthy place. Daily I see walkers, bickers and joggers pass my window. Kids play in hards and on sidewalks. Some might say it is boring here but I keep entertained by frequenting Woodies Pub and Grill to play pool and have a drink. I walk there to keep active. Everything is within walking distance or a 5 min drive away. Just this morning my daughter and I walked to school.
I love Ashland!

Ashland is a small town, where your last name, and athletic ability is all that matters. I like the town fine, but most people are very closed minded and only concerned if you have grown up here.
The town has several restaurants, including three pizza places. Pizza Haus is probably the best one and the one that has been in town for the longest. There is one bar on the south side of town, and it has GREAT food! But when it comes to where people like to hang out and enjoy each other's company while watching the big game, people usually choose to have a barbecue at their own place. Some of the people around here really know their way around a burger and a grilled chicken.
