Cedarville Surrounding Area Map

Cedarville University is located on 400 acres at the north edge of the Village of Cedarville, Ohio. With its historic architecture, downtown stores, a coffee roaster and restaurants, serene natural setting, and close proximity to thriving metropolitan areas, Cedarville is a truly unique place to call home.

Within a mile of the University is the Little Miami Bike Trail, which is part of an extensive system of paved bike trails in the region. Cedarville’s surrounding countryside extends west toward John Bryan State Park and has been recognized as one of the most scenic in the Midwest.

Throughout the year, the area offers plenty of activities for college students. In the summertime, plan to take in a Dayton Dragons minor league baseball game; celebrate Labor Day by watching Cedarville’s spectacular fireworks display; and explore the Yellow Springs Street Fair. All year long, enjoy outdoor recreation, from hiking trails and whitewater rafting to skiing and other winter sports at Mad River Mountain. During the Christmas season, plan to visit the historic Clifton Mill, where visitors flock to see the incredible holiday light shows held nightly.

Columbus, Dayton, and Cincinnati are an easy drive from the University and offer a wide variety of fine dining, professional sporting events, museums, and concerts.
