Great Summer Getaway: Chamber of Commerce discusses tourism in Ashland

ASHLAND, WI– The final Great Summer Getaway series wrapped up Thursday, and we spoke with Mary McPhetridge, the Executive Director of the Ashland Area Chamber of Commerce.

McPhetridge says the city hosts numerous events each year, including two coming up in September, including a car show and muralfest. You can also check out the ABC Raceway, located a few miles south of downtown, experience excellent and small mouth bass fishing along the shores of Lake Superior, and eat at many independently-owned restaurants.

Ashland’s Main Street was recognized for a third straight year as one of the top six in the state of Wisconsin, and McPhetridge says with all the local businesses and its variety, plus local art and more, that’s what makes Ashland’s Main Street stand out, and being recognized statewide.
