Located just south of the Kansas City metro area, Miami County is known for its outdoor water sports, wineries, observatory, cider mill and big cat park.
The Hillsdale Lake region attracts about 1 million visitors to the state park, the area's hunting areas, shooting range and marina. KC Watersports draw a crowd to its cable-waterski park with sand volleyball courts also providing family entertainment.
Known as a fall favorite, the Louisburg Cider Mill provides family entertainment all year with its country store and windows that allow visitors a look at the operations.
Before the days of Prohibition, Miami County was known for its wineries and vineyards. Those days have returned with a resurgence of wine production in the county. The region's four wineries create the Somerset Wine Trail hosting numerous special events.
