Walk Ashland Walking Tours

Tour Ashland On Foot

Exploring history and art in a new town (or your own town) is fun, meaningful and memorable. Have a new, richer experience of Ashland as you learn about Ashland’s history, art and neighborhoods.

Ashland was founded in 1852 as an agricultural and mill town, but the citizens were committed to culture and education from the early years. Learn what led to Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Southern Oregon University and more.

You can choose from guided walks that focus on history, art, specific neighborhoods – or all of the above! Explore Ashland with a guide and feel the difference.

Custom walking tours or talks can be arranged for your family, group or event.

Thank you for your walking tour. It was fabulous. I have lived in Ashland for nearly 50 years and I learned more from your walk than I had ever known about this town.
