Welcome to Grant County...
The Heart of Northern Kentucky
You’ll find our scenic backroads and biking trails
delightful. Much of our rural area looks similar
as it did, when our forefathers first founded the
county back in 1820.
After enjoying all that we have to offer, we hope
that you’ll make Grant County your hub, while
you travel to many other exciting attractions. We
have many fine hotels and restaurants, plus we
are located right along I-75, and midway between
Lexington and Cincinnati.
Travel to the South, and you’ll find the Kentucky
Horse Park, Keeneland Race Track, and the
Kentucky Artisan Center in Berea.
Travel to the North, you’ll discover King’s Island,
the Cincinnati Reds, River Boat Cruises, the
Newport Aquarium, and the Cincinnati Zoo.
To the West, you’ll experience the excitement of
car racing at Kentucky Speedway.
Last, but not least, are our friends to the East,
Kincaid Lake State Park in Falmouth, Blue Licks
State Park, and majestic covered bridges.
All of these attractions are within a
30 to 60 minute drive.
We hope you enjoy your stay!
