The murals in Ashland are best seen on foot. Stop in at the tourist center or one of the local hotels to pick up the mural flyer. It includes a map and a short background about each mural. We did our walk on a Sunday morning. This was a great time because there was basically no traffic so you could... More

We stumbled on the murals as a last minute thing. Very happy we did, still in awe of the work and planning. The huge wall for the service members was extraordinary. Do anything you can to find a couple hours to hike around town to see them all. Can't beat the price.... Free

To begin with, Ashland is a beautiful little city with a spectacular, breath taking view of Lake Superior. Add to that the friendly people, the great food, and the Mural Walk, and you have a place that you just don't want to miss. Easily accessible, Ashland literally brings Hwys 2 and 13 together. Beautiful, historic murals have been painted on... More

As we passed through Ashland, we spotted the first of many murals panted on the buildings and had to turn around and explore. Not something we saw at the State welcome centre and glad we took the time to walk the streets. Just a wonderful inspirational experience! Worth the side trip!

Ashland happened to be the halfway point of our journey along Lake Superior from Michigan to Minnesota. We hadn't known about the murals beforehand. We were so impressed by them and got totally caught up in the hunt to find them all. The walls truly talk in telling the story of this town. We stayed in Ashland a second time... More

If you are coming to Ashland, don't miss the murals! They are painted on the buildings downtown. They all tell a story. Brochures are available in stores, motels, and most businesses.

Ashland was the highlight of this portion of our trip. It rests on the shore of Lake Superior in the northeast part of the state, south of Bayfield. We visited in June of 2012, electing to stay in Ashland (which I wholeheartedly recommend) when we booked the hotels for our midwest trip. When we arrived, I was in a rush... More

The many murals in Ashland give a fine review of the history of the area and its people. I suggest getting out of the car and using the helpful map to get right up to all of them. This will take a ct least an hour, but it is well worth it.

This was a must see for me after reading the reviews here...Ashland is a beautiful treasure right on Lake Superior and the Mural Walk did not disappoint....actually, my experience of this attraction was a mural driving tour, but simply pulling up to the murals did not detract from their beauty and awesomeness....the city needs to make sure these are NEVER...
