Visiting Ashland

Affectionately referred to by locals as the "Center of the Universe", Ashland is situated approximately 15 miles north of Richmond and is less than two hours from Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia, Charlottesville, and Norfolk.

A small town with a big personality, Ashland is the perfect place to spend your holidays with a historic main street, lined with shops, restaurants, a historic inn, a brewery, and the campus of Randolph-Macon College. 

Just beyond downtown, modern conveniences draw in weary travelers from Interstate 95 thanks to a variety of dining, fueling, and lodging options well suited for families and business travelers alike.

Whether you're making a quick stopover or spending the day or weekend exploring downtown, Ashland blends history and quirky small-town charm with efficiency and modern convenience.
