In and Around

While there is a lot to do in Ashland itself, there is an equal amount to do near it as well. For example, you can appreciate the majestic natural beauty of the Wayne National Forest by taking a one-day trip.

Lake Vesuvius is a 143-acre lake and its surrounding Lake Vesuvius Recreational Area is supremely gorgeous. Visitors spend hours canoeing or boating on the lake waters, and some try their luck at fishing. If you prefer to get some exercise, you can go hiking or take a refreshing swim.
