Things to Do in Oxford, OH

Recently cited by Forbes as the #1 Best College Town in America, Oxford, Ohio is a small-town community with close to 7,000 year-round residents. For 9 months of the year, Oxford is filled with the vibrant energy that comes with 18,000 Miami University students. The proximity of the University provides access to excellent arts, cultural and athletic events, as well as amazing facilities. During the summer, the town keeps busy with festivals, concerts, and events. The historic Uptown district (because it's uphill from all directions) is home to several locally-owned businesses and is busy year-round.

Surrounded by miles of generational family farms, Oxford boasts an award-winning farmer's market, numerous arts organizations, and miles of hiking trails. We are 15 minutes from Hueston Woods State Park and within an hour of both Cincinnati and Dayton. We love our little town and all it has to offer. Welcome to our home! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. To find out more about Oxford and "what to do," visit the Enjoy Oxford site.
