A few things we love

Here are a few things we love about Licking County.

Our history

Remnants of who we were.

People have been finding their way here for thousands years in search of a way of life. From the ancient to the contemporary, our history transcends age and culture, offering shared moments of understanding simply between people - no tickets required.

Our greenspace

A community asset.

Hiking trails, waterways, and bike paths can lead you to an adventure or just a good conversation with a friend. It’s up to you to find your own way in the Great Outdoors. The only payment required is a friendly wave or nod to the stranger as they pass by on their own journey.

The harvest

And what happens beyond it.

It's not a secret that we are deeply rooted in agriculture - it has been and always will be a part of who we are. The local food movement is a tradition here. From farm to table, we are committed to a lifestyle that includes the hop, the vine, and the harvest.

Our communities as one

Open the door.

Tree lined streets and welcoming front porches are the cornerstones of who we are as people. Whichever road you go down, the destination is the same. Our welcomes are like a handshake over the back fence.
