Tuscarawas County Ohio is bisected by Interstate 77, running north and south, and by Scenic State Route 39 running east and west.
These make it easier to access the county's many attractions than it is to spell or pronounce its name.
There is a host of events and activities to do while traveling around this area. History runs deep and strong here.
Of course our personal Tuscarawas County Ohio favorite is the Swiss and Amish culture of Sugarcreek and its surrounding area.
Experience the Swiss flavor - from cheese to architecture! See firsthand how the Amish live and survive. Shop, dine, relax. Spend a night or a weekend.
