Visit The Oldest Public Beach Near Cincinnati For A Day Of Timeless Fun

Cincinnati is known as a river town, but it’s also well known that the Ohio River does not offer any beaches in the Tristate area. We are a landlocked city, which means no nearby coastline, but that doesn’t mean you can’t sink your toes in the sand this summer and without a long drive. There are a few scenic lakes near our city that offer a stretch of sand and gentle waters that are perfect for a hot, sunny day. East Fork State Park in Clermont County has what is likely the oldest public beach near Cincinnati, and you’ll want to visit for a day of timeless fun.
