Welcome to Adams County, Ohio.

Imagine a place that has the enduring coziness of a small-town atmosphere from days gone by, yet still resounds with the spirit of today. Imagine a place where you can take a long, easy step back in time to see the prairies that once covered portions of Ohio in the morning, play a round of golf, and watch the sunset over the Ohio River while sipping a glass of local wine.

You can find it in Adams County, Ohio. Find those spots where time stood still, like Blake's Soda Fountain, or wander through Amish shops in the Wheat Ridge Community. Or step back farther and walk along rugged cliff edges and creek beds created hundreds of thousands of years ago. Hike miles of trails or ponder the mysteries of the Great Serpent Mound.

Discover Appalachian handcrafts, quaint towns, or boat the Ohio River and the Ohio Brush Creek from sunup to sundown. Or just find a quiet bank and fish away the afternoon.

Relax beneath cool, comfy sheets at one of our many country inns, hotels, lodges, or cabins.

However you want to enjoy our county - exploring, discovering or finding that special place to just simply kick up your feet and relax - we have something just for you.
