Lake Superior in the summer means world-class smallmouth bass fishing in Chequamegon Bay as well as great near-shore and deep-water fishing. Warmer temperatures send many fish to deeper water where vertical jigging can produce walleye, northern pike and panfish.

Summer also means it’s time for the Ashland Area Farmer’s Market, held every Saturday from mid-June through mid-October on Chapple Avenue in downtown Ashland. The street is closed off for this wonderful weekly event featuring music, kids’ chalk activities, fresh produce, fruit, maple syrup, dried flowers, plants, and many homemade items.

Known as the “Historic Mural Capital of Wisconsin,” Ashland’s pride in its rich history is evident in its 17 vibrant murals highlighting a particular aspect of the city’s colorful past, depicting subjects ranging from the city’s lumberjacks and military veterans to its railroads, storefronts and former massive ore dock.

Ashland offers visitors a wide variety of mouthwatering mealtime choices. Check out one of our locally-owned eateries for home-cooked specialties or sip an award-winning craft-brewed beer with your meal.
