Beautiful murals!!

I cannot imagine how many hours went into creating these gorgeous murals! They were all within a few blocks of each other making it easy access.

Listed in the CAA tour book. Pick up a brochure at a travel stop for directions and locations as there are a few towns who have 'muraled' their history. A nice walk through a small town to see these murals that are very well done. Close to their waterfront which has been maintained for visitors. This was a lunch stop... More

Ashland is a great place to stroll and take a step into the past and see what it was like from the mid 1800's to the mid 1900's. The murals are representations of the people and times of the eras, historical happenings and featuring a backdrop of buildings and architecture some of which still stand. As you stroll you can...

I absolutely Adored staying in Ashland, and the Mural Walk is an intriguing astounding way to begin to understand more of Ashland's people and history - The murals offer vignettes of what is most important to the wonderful people of this northern, Lake Superior based community - And I thoroughly enjoyed the Murals, as I toured and explored the rest...

The murals are beautiful. We kept looking for a color picture book of the murals. Shop owners were all helpful and willing to listen to ideas and suggestions from tourists. This tells me that this town is serious about improving their town and services. We finally found a picture book but had to go to the historical society to buy... More

Take the time to see these murals done by 2 local artists. These are historical depictions of the community members and the history of the area. It really is beneficial to take time to looks up the descriptions of these murals prior to or during your tour. What a marvelous way to convey the history of the city and the... More

We were not expecting this but it was well done and interesting. The detail is very good. You will want to explore the downtown area to see all the murals. There are brochures available with maps and locations. Pick a nice sunny day.

We stayed in Ashland for the Apple festival in Bayfield. We were told that the hand painted murals throughout the town was a must see! You have to even go down the alleys and see the hidden murals. I tool many pictures.....but.....it really is so much better in person. They tell a story of the area and the people. Don't... More

Ashland is a really pretty place with a lovely lakeside walk and great places to sit and enjoy the beaches. It also has fascinating number of murals that are scattered throughout the town. Take an early morning stroll down the main street and keep looking up the side streets. The Black Cat Café is a great breakfast / coffee stop.

Great murals all over town and could do a nice walking tour. A lot of history depicted in the murals and takes you all around downtown. If you are a geocacher, there is one attached to the murals.
