Ashwick Valley started with a bang as an outpost in the early days of the Gold Rush, although it never grew quite as fast as its sisters to the north and south.
Why? Who cares. Because these days, Ashwick is a rapidly growing city that's renowned for its small but scenic beaches, two college campuses, a thriving local art scene, and some of the most interesting people you'll ever come across in your life. Boasting close to 30,000 citizens (and counting!), it's safe to say that this modest NorCal town is finally coming into its own.
But Ashwick Valley is still a modest city, steeped in tradition and a profound sense of community. Natives will tell you that this place has a strange hold on people, that - no matter where you go or how long you're there - it'll always be home.
