Tradition runs deep as the earth in Mountain View County. It’s a place of rich soil and richer opportunities. The terrain varies from expansive horizons in the east to undulating foothills and dense forests to the west. And scattered throughout are communities each with their own unique personalities, on-the-farm experiences and one-of-a-kind boutiques and cafés.
Mountain View County is ideal for people who love to be outside in the fresh air, or soaking up western culture and heritage. It’s an area that is hugely popular with cyclists of all skill levels. Rodeos jam the calendar spring through fall. There are spots hidden and well-loved alike perfect for fishing, hunting, hiking, camping and riding. Markets are prevalent everywhere… farmer’s markets, art shows and sales, artisans and crafts… and with the many festivals, concerts, and special events throughout the County, there is no lack of engaging activities in this quiet rural environment.
