The Mission of Eden Tourism Development is to serve as a catalyst for community economic development through travel and tourism related activities. We will work to promote and market Eden as a destination for existing venues, events and activities, while exploring the creation of new opportunities for our citizens, as well as our business and leisure visitors.

Eden is a community providing numerous quality tourism events and attractions. We assist in making lifelong memories for our visitors and citizens alike. We are a leader in tourism development and promotion, and valued for enhancing the success and profitability of tourism related businesses in Eden. We are respected by our citizens, elected and appointed officials, and leaders in the travel & tourism industry.

Nature Based Tourism            

Whether you paddle, pedal, tie on your walking shoes, or drive the back roads, there are outdoor adventures aplenty in and near Eden. From our riverside greenway to the wildlife that still flourishes in our woodlands, in Eden, it’s easy to slip away from civilization – and just as easy to get back.

Sports Tourism

Whether you want to watch some baseball tournament competition or tee off at one of Eden’s golf courses, Eden is the place to play.

historical Tourism

Come face to face with Eden’s history. You can discover yesteryear along the back roads and riverbanks, as well as in the splendid architecture of some of the older homes, mills and bridges.


Agri-tourism incorporates exciting recreation such as hay rides, barnyard animals, corn mazes, pick-your-own fruits and vegetables, bird watching, farm roadside stands, fishing, hunting, camping, pumpkin patches, value-added products, flowers, and more.
