The Adams County Travel & Visitors Bureau is at Cincinnati Travel, Sport & Boat Show this week promoting Adams County.
According to Tom Cross, Executive Director of the Adams County TVB what interests people the most about Adams County is its Amish Community, outdoor recreation such as hiking, bird watching and nature related activities, hunting, and events.
"We're seeing a lot more folks inquire about camping in Adams County, too," said Cross.
If the past is any indication usually 1,000 to 1,500 people will visit the Adams County booth and approximately 2,000 pieces of Adams County literature will be handed out to show attendees. This year Adams County is again sharing a booth with Brown County Tourism in an effort to cut expenses, saving the Bureau around $600 this year.
According to Cross, interest in Adams County is strong.
"People have interesting stories about family living in the county or visiting here or buying land to retire on," Cross said. "But most of what I hear is, 'I just love it out there.'"
The Cincinnati Travel, Sport & Boat Show runs from Jan. 18-27 at the Cincinnati Convention Center, located in downtown Cincinnati on 6th street. For more information about the show, which is in its 56th year, go to www.hartproductions.com.
