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.

What a treasure for the town of Ashland to have these murals. It was delightful to walk the town to view these murals up-close and from afar (best viewing). We stopped at the down-town museum for a map (a nice time in itself) then started walking. These large murals in vibrant colors make Ashland history come alive. I hope they... More

Loved the mural walk. Take the time for a leisurely stroll down Main Street...well worth it! It starts and the corner of Hwy 2 & 13 and will have a mural every few blocks, a very easy walk

It told a story of Ashland and Wisconsin through murals painted on a number of building walls within easy walking distance around Ashland downtown. There are printed guides and explainations of the murals available at most stores and hotels. Very well done paints and it makes an old, revitalizing downtown even more interesting.

Beautiful Murals cover the downtown buildings - it doesn't take long to see them, however it is worth driving or walking around to get a chance to see these life like murals that tell the story of Ashland.
