My experience in Ashland, Kentucky is that this place is full of food and education. If you are hungry for either an education and a good career, or maybe just a quick bite to eat, then look no further...This small city of 20,000 plus is just what you're looking for. Perhaps you are looking for a good place to retire? This is the place...

I love my hometown of Ashland! I wish something could be done to help the drug addicts. I hate to see what is happening to this little town because of drugs.

Ashland, KY has been a great experience, I moved here in March of 2010. Its a small town but the people are very kind and helpful. I plan on staying here for quite awhile and enjoy my opportunities that have been placed in my lap.
