ASHLAND, VA (October 13, 2022) – Planning the perfect day or weekend in Ashland just got much easier! The Town of Ashland’s Community Engagement Department is excited to unveil the Town’s new VisitAshlandVA website and AshlandVA Widget with integrated mobile apps – an interactive way to map out everything to see, do, eat, and drink in the Ashland area. 

“No more fussing with bulky maps or checking five different event websites to figure out what’s going on in Ashland,” said Martha J. Miller, Community Engagement Manager for the Town of Ashland. “Whether you live or work here, or are visiting us, we designed the new site and app to act as your all-access digital passport to the Center of the Universe.”  

Designed by Visit Widget and funded in part by a grant from Virginia Tourism Corporation, the new site and planning tool provides a new way to explore what the Ashland area has to offer, including hotels, popular restaurants, activities, shopping, and more.  

On, click on “Planning” for a dropdown of helpful tools, including parking information, itinerary ideas, and more. And coming soon, interactive walking tours of Ashland’s historic neighborhoods and seasonal scavenger hunt challenges! 

“The tourism economy in Ashland is poised for immense growth in the next five to ten years, especially with the arrival of the Fall Line Trail and Mid-Atlantic Railroad Park,” Miller added. “We are grateful to Virginia Tourism Corporation for their support, which has been instrumental in helping us prepare for and meet the needs of the next generation of visitors.”
