Destination guide

Big draw Williamstown

Situated in Grant County, Williamstown sits surrounded by rolling green countryside, spliced through by Interstate 75. While it's a small city with only a handful of attractions, its newest addition has most certainly put it on the map – the ever-developing Ark Encounter, a sprawling Bible-themed amusement park. Williamstown vacation rentals sit within easy reach of the city's creature comforts and amenities, but, if you fancy a day of world-class culture hubs, museums and a zoo, Cincinnati is less than an hour away.

Things to do

Encounter the Ark at Williamstown

Opened in 2016 and still in development, The Ark Encounter is the city's one-of-a-kind attraction. The Bible-themed park boasts a full-size wooden ark, dubbed by the creators as the largest timber-framed structure in America. Inside you'll find a wealth of curious exhibits, including a detailed run-down of the animals that allegedly traveled on the ark. If local history is more your thing, then pay a visit to the William Arnold Log House. Once the home of the city's founder, the log house's authentic interior gives visitors a glimpse into life during the early 19th century.
