The region’s dining, entertainment, festivals, and events offer delicious options and good old-fashioned fun — but, bonus! — city amenities are just a short drive away. Some of Ohio and Indiana's best metro areas are at our doorstep, perfect for an adventure or special weekend. Central Preble County is just 40 minutes from Dayton and under 1.5 hours from Cincinnati, Columbus, and Indianapolis. Families can enjoy a fun day at the Cincinnati Zoo, the Columbus Museum of Art, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, or Dayton’s Boonshoft Museum of Discovery. City dining, theater, and concerts can make for a special night out on the town.

Fans of professional baseball, basketball, and football can cheer for the Reds, the Pacers, the Bengals, or the Colts. The stadiums and arenas are close enough to easily experience gameday thrills in person. If college sports get your heart pumping, The Ohio State University is just an hour and a half away.

Preble County Celebrates Community

Preble County’s community spirit really shines through in its celebrations and festivals. It is unique to be able to experience small-town charm so close to four different metro areas: Dayton, Cincinnati, Columbus, and Indianapolis.

Enjoy good old-fashioned fun in Preble County!
