Things I loved about Ashland, Oregon.

before our long weekend in ashland, oregon, i hadn't really ever heard of the town. yet when we left... we kept referring to it as awesome ashland!

nick and i had driven through ashland on our trips to portland and seattle, but we didn't see much from the interstate. so, when nick's siblings suggested we get together in ashland for the weekend, i didn't think much of it. boy, was i pleasantly surprised! ashland is such a cute town.

it's known for its shakespeare festival and i would love to go back soon to see a play.
ashland was super outdoorsy, the air was fresh, the people were friendly (even the shakespeare/renaissance folks who were super quirky), the nightlife was bumpin' (thanks to the university in town) and the breweries were delicious. we got a great deal on a vrbo house for the weekend and took advantage of the fully equipped kitchen. one of the nights, we made dinner at the house and sat outside by the fire pit, drank wine and listened to CJ play the guitar.

it was such a fun and relaxing weekend. i loved seeing my nieces and in-laws! and, it was the perfect spot for nick's siblings and us to meet in the middle!

we will definitely be going back soon!

That looks like such a fun weekend! I've been to a lot of places in Oregon, but haven't heard of that city before.

I've only been to Portland, but would love to see more of the state. Looks like a cute place to go...
