This Charming Oregon Town Is Picture Perfect For An Autumn Day Trip
Located in southern Oregon, the beautiful town of Ashland is endlessly charming, and it’s a perfect place to experience the changing of the seasons. On the colorful, tree-lined streets of Ashland you’ll find historic buildings, delicious restaurants, local markets, art galleries, theaters, the beautiful Lithia Park, and more.
With a population of around 20,000, this charming city is not too small or too large.
The tree-lined streets are absolutely enchanting this time of year.
Be sure to see what's on at the legendary Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Every year, around a dozen incredible plays (modern and old) take place from February through November.
One of the most incredible things to do while visiting Ashland in autumn is to explore the incredible Lithia Park. This 93-acre park includes a Japanese garden, miles of hiking trails, a play structure, ponds, a fountain, scenic vistas, and more.
It's especially spectacular in Fall, when the trees are leaves are vibrant shades of orange, red, yellow, and purple.
There's plenty to do downtown, from catching a flick at the Varsity Theater to shopping at the Rogue Valley Growers & Crafters Market.
You'll want to try some of the incredible restaurants here as well. Here's a photo of a unique dish served at Alchemy Restaurant and Bar.
For an unforgettable afternoon excursion, take a short drive to the outskirts of town to check out some of southern Oregon's incredible vineyards. Fall is harvest time, so there's no better time to visit.
To make a weekend trip out of it, spend the night at one of Ashland's wonderful hotels or B&Bs. Here's a photo of the courtyard at the historic Ashland Springs Hotel.
This charming little city in southern Oregon is a perfect destination for your next fall getaway.
