Why Choose Cambridge
You may have never heard of Cambridge, Ohio, but you’d be surprised how much this rural community has to offer all year round.
Located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Cambridge is the perfect place for anyone who enjoys nature, historical structures and the best Christmas display in the state of Ohio. With a population of just over 10,000, Cambridge is the perfect place for anyone who enjoys locally-owned restaurants, quirky stores and lots of family events.
Families with children will be happy to know that the student to teacher ratio at Cambridge schools is lower than the national average, with a 1:15.4 student ratio versus the U.S. average of 1-16.8. The cost of living is also lower, with families paying $990 per month for a four-bedroom housing unit versus the $1107 average in Ohio.
Cambridge is, perhaps, best-known for our Dickens Victorian Village display that takes place every Christmas season from November 1st until early January. The city is transformed into an old English town with 180 lifelike figures throughout downtown depicting more than 80 scenes from books by Charles Dickens.
Another top destination for visitors and residents alike is Salt Fork State Park. With miles of hiking trails and horse trails, you’ll be awestruck by the surrounding forestry and Salt Fork Lake itself. You can even enjoy nature to its fullest by renting a cabin for the weekend.
With its natural beauty, enchanting downtown and festive Christmas tradition, it’s easy to see why so many people fall in love with Cambridge.
