We enjoy strolling down Ashland's downtown main street because the old buildings have been preserved and it remains the center of their retailing district - mega strip malls on the edge of town have yet to spoil Ashland.
An entertaining additional benefit of getting out of the car and walking around downtown is finding the more than a dozen historical murals that have been painted on the sides of selected downtown buildings.
