I've been living in Ashland Ohio for 3 years and have enjoyed the small town culture here that is provided me and my family with a great place to live and enjoy something special in regards to education, recreation, shopping, and other amenities. Ashland has a beautiful culture of diverse individuals that create a culture of inclusion that allows us to work and enjoy life and create friendships that are lasting. My kids love the school system and they are excellent as far as their accreditations and execution of basic educational requirements. There's very little crime in the city and you can feel safe walking the streets and enjoying neighborhoods.
The best areas in Ashland are around the Brookside Golf Course on the western side of the city. The housing market in Ashland in this area is reasonably priced and allows individuals to hold their value on their properties that are purchased in this area. Ashland is about an hour away from Cleveland Ohio and allows individuals to actually work in Cleveland and live in Ashland easily if they choose to make that commute. If you're looking to move to Ohio I recommend Ashland as a great place to live and raise a family.
