WHY CLERMONT COUNTY Only in Clermont

STEP OUTSIDE CINCINNATI FOR THE GOOD LIFE AT A GREAT PRICE

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what sets us apart from our Cincinnati neighbors just a few minutes to the west. Maybe it’s our history as part of the Underground Railroad and a gateway to possibility for generations of Americans. Or perhaps it’s our friendly attitudes that make every visitor feel like a welcome member of the family. It could be our miles of scenic beauty — after all, we’re known as Cincinnati’s “natural side” — which beckon for fun and relaxation. Whatever it is that makes this place so special, the feeling is growing, and there’s never been a better time to host your meeting, event, or competition right here in Clermont County.

GATHER Whether you’re scouting the perfect spot for your group’s annual conference, bringing athletes to compete in a national competition, or planning your company’s next strategic expansion, Clermont County has everything you need to make your stay a comfortable, affordable, and memorable one. Our second-to-none Midwest location offers quick access to CVG international airport and major highways that are within a day’s drive to 60 percent of the U.S. population. In other words, Clermont is the perfect meet-up spot for friends and teammates near and far.

If adventure is your group’s forte, you can search the world over, but you won’t find anything quite like Jungle Jim’s International Market & Event Space. This sprawling local institution is part grocery store, part theme park, and it has everything: live seafood tanks, interactive cooking school, multiple restaurants and pubs, massive wine and craft beer selection, and hard-to-find items from more than 70 countries. Jungle Jim’s accommodates groups in an 80-person conference space with four-panel AV screen and two-way teleconferencing capabilities. And when it’s time to break, take your team on a raucous, aisle-by-aisle scavenger hunt!

It all goes great with sweet summertime treats from United Dairy Farmers and Graeter’s Ice Cream.

FIND YOUR GROOVE Whether you’re part of a team or a team of one, Clermont has everything you need to satisfy your fiercest inner competitor. In addition to our many diverse sports venues, we work with venues and sports organizers all across nearby Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

With 2,000 meters of open water that’s home to the USRowing National Championships, you could say that’s where Clermont’s winning spirit lives. But it’s also on land, turf, sand, and horseback. To be exact…

When they’re not hosting regional, national, and international competitions, local venues like Midland Baseball Complex and scenic East Fork State Park offer full event schedules for solo and team activities alike.

FAST BREAK

Designed to house five full size courts, this 36,000 square-foot Nothin But Net basketball facility features quality hardwood courts that can also be used for futsal, volleyball and more.

CHARGE YOUR BATTERIES Teams will get a restful night’s sleep in any of Clermont County’s 1,200 rooms — or thousands more within a 30-minute drive — which range from economy-priced hotels to full-service and extended-stay accommodations. All are conveniently located near major interstates and less than a 45-minute drive from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG). If the outdoor scene is more your speed, Clermont is also home to some of the best campgrounds and RV communities the tristate region has to offer. MEETING AND SPORTS PLANNING GUIDE
