Ashland is a picturesque city nested on beautiful Chequamegon Bay in northern Wisconsin. The port offers immediate access to nature with Lake Superior, the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, and the Apostle Islands nearby. You’re never far from parks, trails, and places to camp and boat. 

Turn-of-the-century brownstone buildings add flavor to Ashland’s historic downtown, where you’ll find charming shops and restaurants as part of an authentic small-town experience. The community comes together for farmers markets and annual events such as Bay Days in July. In winter, Book Across the Bay is a starlit race across frozen Lake Superior from Ashland to Washburn, Wisconsin.
