Explore Ashtabula County, Ohio
If you’ve not watched the sun set over Lake Erie after a day of fishing, swimming, or boating, then it is time to visit Ashtabula County!
Beaches aren’t all that we have to offer in the area. Ohio’s northeast corner offers the greatest concentration of covered bridges, with 17 of the 19 fully operational. Be sure to visit the longest covered bridge in the United States… and while you’re at it, visit the shortest one, too!

Vineyards = Grapes and Grapes = Wine. Lake Erie’s micro-climate and the land formation of the Grand River Valley provide perfect conditions for growing grapes. 75% of the grapes grown in Ohio are found in Ashtabula County. The region boasts 23 wineries of every shape and size.
Think you’re not a wine drinker? Let us change your mind! The Grand River Valley and the Conneaut Creek wine-growing areas have something to offer for everyone. Visitors will find large estate wineries and small boutique wineries serving sweet, dry and everything in between. You’ll find more than wine: vodka, whiskey, and bourbon are being made from grapes at our local distillery. Craft beers, hard apple cider, and more can all be found in some of our local wineries. Don’t forget to ask about ice wine, made from frozen grapes harvested by hand at night.
Our calendar is full of unique events and festivals through the year; some of the largest being the D-Day Living History Re-Enactment (2nd largest in the world), the Grape Jamboree, and Thunder on the Strip Motorcycle Rally.
