Conferences in Oxford: Grow

Thanks to Oxford's many attractions, you and your team members will have plenty of exciting opportunities to indulge in your intellectual interests both inside and out of the conference space.

History buffs will love our self-guided history tours and museum options. Art-lovers will have no shortage of ways to entertain themselves with sculpture parks and art exhibits. Want to spend the afternoon with team-building activities that are both fun and productive? We've got you covered there, too.


Team Build at Miami’s Recreational Center

750 S. Oak St.

Miami University's Rec Center offers a range of team-building exercises, all at affordable prices.

There are Escape Rooms available that will encourage you and your group to put your minds together, find the clues, and get out in 60 minutes or less!

You can also try an Aerial Adventure or Adventure Race, as well as different levels of ground-based activities that will have you working together as a team to make it through numerous challenges.


Learn Local History

Spend some time outside and expand your local history knowledge with one or more of Oxford's self-guided history tours. Our most recently published tour is the Oxford Black History Tour, which will take you all throughout town learning about the triumphs, tribulations, and accomplishments of Oxford's Black community over the years.

Our other tours include the Uptown Historic District Tour, the Western College for Women Tour, and the University Historic District Tour. (All tours can be downloaded from our "Do" page here.)

We also recommend exploring the McGuffey House & Museum (401 E. Spring St.) to learn more about the author and professor William Holmes McGuffey.


Enjoy the Arts

Enjoying the arts in Oxford is made easy thanks to the Oxford Community Arts Center (10 S. College Ave.) who boast ongoing exhibits that are free and open to the public. Their Second Friday events (which are virtual for now) take place on the second Friday of each month and introduce you to musical performances, new exhibits, and open artist studios. Keep an eye on their website because as COVID restrictions begin to lift, we'll be able to look forward to more in-person events such as concerts and theater productions.

The Miami University Art Museum (801 S. Patterson Ave.) is also free and open to the public with rotating exhibits as well as fascinating permanent collections. Call ahead and make your reservation, then enjoy an afternoon strolling through the galleries and taking in the inspiring displays. When you're done inside, make sure to head outdoors to enjoy a walk around the Sculpture Park.
