Ashland is situated on the banks of the Ohio River where Kentucky meets neighboring Ohio and West Virginia (known as the Tri-State area). Whether you want to engage in business, outdoor recreational activities, attend a festival, take in a concert, travel the Country Music Highway, visit a museum, or just enjoy the scenic beauty, Ashland offers many choices on how to spend your time. On the shore of the Ohio River, many outdoor activities in our area revolve around the water. In addition to the river, Carter Caves State Park, Greenbo Lake State Park, Yatesville Lake State Park, and Ohio’s Lake Vesuvius are all only a short drive away. Whether your pleasure is boating, skiing, swimming, fishing, camping, or hiking, you’re sure to find what you enjoy in the Ashland area. First-class golf and tennis are also options. The area has numerous 18-hole golf courses and one of the best tennis centers in Kentucky. After a full day, spend the evening dining at one of Ashland’s fine restaurants or attend a performance at the downtown Paramount Arts Center. The Paramount offers a vast performing arts venue. While you’re in the area, take a leisurely stroll through historic downtown. A map, available through the Ashland Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, will guide you through Ashland’s history and its development. Don’t miss this opportunity to stop by the Riverfront Park area.
