Countless Attractions and Adventures in Archbold—Come One, Come All!

When you stroll the streets of downtown Archbold, you feel as though you’ve stepped back in time: old-fashioned local businesses peddling toys, unique clothing, specialty cut meats, and vibrant, wholesome produce. You’ll also find fine dining restaurants, cozy Mom-and-Pop joints and even a 50s-themed diner. The palette of appetizing sights Archbold offers is simply mouthwatering. 

But that’s just a mere taste of Archbold. Beyond the boundaries of town, you’ll find movie theaters, postcard-perfect golf courses, wineries, museums, churches, conference facilities, hotels, motels, and more.

Looking for hands-on fun that inspires a true feeling of bygone days? Check out Sauder Village, a “live” historical village where merchants and pioneers of the olden days come to life as costumed guides, showing you and your family how pioneers made baskets, brooms, blacksmithing goods, and more. A wide variety of artisan shops and good, hearty food make this attraction a number one hit. 

Then let the kids burn off energy while you explore exciting outdoor attractions like Woodland Park, a family park full of unique equipment like huge “rollercoaster” slides, a rock climbing wall, and a central “tower” for climbing fun.

Fine hospitality is a famous feature of Archbold, and you’ll find it wherever you roam. With all these sights and thrills packed into a town of just 4,000, we are proof that great things truly come in small packages.
