Clermont County, Ohio | Rich quality of life, easy urban access

By Kathie Stamps

Clermont County is a peaceful and thriving community with a diverse economy and plenty of small-town summer festivals, sporting events and concerts within easy reach of downtown Cincinnati.

A 30-minute drive along the Ohio River due east from downtown Cincinnati, Clermont County is part of the Cincinnati metro area but offers a slower pace of life. In terms of employment, the top 10 companies in the county represent a diverse list of industries such as freight logistics, computer programming, insurance, credit card processing, manufacturing, health care and automotive dealerships. There are brewing companies in the Ohio cities of Loveland, Milford and Williamsburg, a boutique winery and vineyard in Bethel, and historical houses and museums to tour throughout the county, including Ulysses S. Grant’s Birthplace & Museum, honoring the 18th president’s place of birth in Point Pleasant.

Community members and tourists alike enjoy fall festivals, summer fests and holiday events. In late 2018, Batavia Village hosted the “Battle Ohio” leg of the Flag Football World Championship Tour.
