Free Publicity

The Holmes County Chamber and Tourism Bureau is committed to helping tell the story of our area’s great businesses and organizations. Below are some of the ways that we are getting the word out every month. The official website of Amish Country receives more than 50,000 visits a month during peak seasons. Every tourism-related Chamber member has its own page on the site, and is invited to customize their pages with images, video, updated information and social media feeds.
