The Place To Be For Fall Foliage


The travel Web site TripAdvisor revealed Ashland as the most affordable destination in the country for weekend getaways, to check out the changing leaves this fall.

Ashland came in first out of 10.

This is great news for Ashland Bed and Breakfasts, who usually see a decrease in business when November rolls around, because the Oregon Shakespeare Festival ends.

The owners of the Blue Moon Bed and Breakfast let their guests know about other options in the valley so they can branch out.

"We concierge them to parks, wineries, white-water rafting, the observatory, anything they can do while they are here, so if the fall foliage becomes a destination for them in Ashland, that's great news and we're just excited about it," said Jean-Pierre Langlade, owner of the Blue Moon Bed and Breakfast.

Guests do not usually come to Ashland and stay at Blue Moon specifically for the fall foliage, Langlade says.
