What an AMAZING downtown! Full of wonderful shops, antique stores and good food! The town was clean, people fairly pleasant and was a GREAT stop on our way through! I am glad we ventured on the road up a bit passed the commercial district off the interstate. We discovered some great places! There is LOTS to do in town, from a bike show to events on the first Fridays. We happened in town during the bike show.

I recently moved to a small town in south eastern Ohio. Cambridge Ohio is such a historical society, it doesn't matter if you are a long time resident, just moved into town or just passing through, the people here are so nice and welcoming. Something I would like to see change is possibly more festivals or gatherings to celebrate the towns great history.
Cambridge is a small town in southeastern Ohio. It sits on the merging point of interstates 70 and 77. There is a walmart, a few fast food places, along with a Mexican restaurant, a Chinese restaurant, local hot spots, Theos, and Beautiful Georgetown Vineyards, where you can enjoy local wine with wood fired, hand tossed pizza while overlooking Cambridge. Cambridge has a city park, with baseball fields and tennis courts. These are located next to Northwood Cemetery, which is an excellent place to walk. Nearby is a state park, Salt Fork, which boasts endless hiking opportunities.
