I've lived here my whole life. There is not very much to do social wise especially for people under 21.
Review Ashland
Another Schuylkill County row home infested area. Not much of a downtown anymore in Ashland and really nothing to do for the kids. It seems like drugs is a big problem here and some of the old people look the other way on many social issues. The weather here isn't that great and the people arent the nicest especially the new ones who moved in town.
I grew up in Ashland. It was a wonderful area back in the 90s. Now a days, this town is so infested with drug addicts and their dealers. I moved away with my children because I did not want them growing around it.
