The Oregon Shakespeare Festival draws thousands to its plays in its historic theaters from February to November. Downtown Ashland is a shopper's delight, with eclectic clothing, home decor, travel, record shops, and several stylish women's shoe stores. Excellent restaurants, breweries and coffee shops line Ashland's quaint streets.
