Whether you are an individual, a family, or a business, there are many things to consider when you relocate. As a business you will need to consider the work force, economic factors and the resources needed for your company. As an individual or family, Ashland’s quality of life and active lifestyle may have great appeal for you. For instance, Ashland’s park system provides a park within one quarter mile of each resident, plus an in-town golf course. Also there are many playgrounds for fun and sports, as well as organizations that offer activities for all ages. A well-used YMCA with an indoor pool and exercise classes attracts people wanting to remain fit. For winter-weather enthusiasts, there is Mt Ashland’s ski and snowboarding area. In addition, there is easy access to hiking, road and mountain biking, water sports and fly fishing. All kinds of team sports are also available for children and adults alike. And the vibrant arts community in Ashland offers theatre, musical, and fine arts experiences for all ages. Ashland’s many high-caliber restaurants attract residents and the local groceries and farmers markets provide healthy, organic foods, many of which are locally-sourced.

            Retirees should know that Ashland was ranked second in the Nation by “Modern Maturity Magazine” for having the necessary amenities for healthy, active living. Ashland retirees participate in hundreds of community organizations and small groups such as book clubs, dinner clubs, hiking groups and swim activities. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at S.O.U offers interesting classes to retirees as does Ashland’s Parks and Recreation Department. Ashland retirees are highly-educated, motivated people, so they often take advantage of volunteer opportunities with organizations such as Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Cabaret theater and the Chamber of Commerce. There are many ways for retirees to find a very fulfilling life here!
