Concentrating on Tipp City and Monroe Township, Tippecanoe-Monroe-Bethel Historical Museum and its research archives illustrate the change and growth of the community. The museum is located a short distance from the Tippecanoe National Register Historical District. Begun in the fall of 1958 to showcase fields of mums growing on the edge of town, Tipp City Mum Festival is Miami County’s oldest festival. Over the years, it has grown from a single day with a parade to events covering several days in the month of September.
Canoeing is a summer time pleasure for residents, as well as challenging themselves on one of five local golf courses, and the many activities at the busy city park and pool. Charleston Falls Preserve’s 169 natural acres featuring easy access boardwalks, 37’ waterfall, hiking trails, cross-country skiing, limestone cave, and observation tower offer something for everyone.
There are several parks in Tipp City to enjoy. The "City Park" has a roundhouse, 3 shelters, football/soccer fields, playground areas and the Tippecanoe Family Aquatic Center featuring three pools, two water slides and a spray area.
