We are contemplating moving to Ashland as semi-retirees working from home. As it would be our last move, we want to make sure it is the right place for us. We do not want a big city, been there done that many times. We like four seasons, a quaint safe downtown, farmers markets, cultural activities and beautiful nature around.

Are the summers really hot? I have health issues aggravated by heat.

Also, how far in driving time is Portland international terminal?

Are there Europeans - French, Brits, Italian or else, in Ashland? Any European social group?

And finally, the question might sound weird, but would you say that in general neighbourhoods are friendly, community oriented and "normal"? We moved many times around the world and around in the US, always had great neighbours. We are now living in California and it feels like living in a psychiatric ward. We do not want to replicate the crazy neighbours scenario. We are quiet people with good boundaries, liking our organic garden, our travels and intellectual pursuits and being neither overly conservative nor crazy liberal.

A few perspectives from seasoned Ashlanders would be welcome.

Thank you!

Were you meaning to post in the Oregon forum? The Massachusetts Ashland is nowhere close to the Portland airport.
