Along the Ohio River some of the prettiest river towns in the country are just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed.
Rising Sun is an excellent example of a small town with a big view.
This friendly town, registered in 1816, is easily found just 40 miles west of Cincinnati and about 100 miles south of Indianapolis.
The Ohio County Historical Society invites visitors – and residents – to learn about Rising Sun, and the surrounding area. Stop by for Quiltfest, or stand next to hydroplane racing treasures like the Hoosier Boy.
A walking-friendly place with buildings on Main Street dating back to 1832, this is an ideal destination for architecture buffs, history geeks – and couples looking for an opportunity to hold hands and stroll.
Home to Heritage Hall, the Empire House Hotel , as well as the Rumpe House, beautiful Rising Sun offers a special venue for memorable events, comfortable and charming accommodations, or even a new home – all within walking distance to the picturesque and history-rich Ohio River.
Take the scenic drive down US56 to arrive at a river state of mind in Rising Sun.
