Although considerably quieter than neighbouring Bursa and Eskişehir, İnegöl retains sufficient attractions to make it interesting to tourists on a one- or two-day stopover, as well as possessing sufficiently unspoilt nearby natural attractions to keep one occupied for longer stays. Notable tourist attractions are the İnegöl Kent Müzesi and (directly next to it) the Historical Mosque. Nearby to İnegöl is the health resort of Oylat (also known as the Oylat Hotspring), adjacent to the Oylat Cave. İnegöl is also conveniently located near to Uludağ, a popular skiing resort during the winter months.
Notable residents include Mustafa Ülgen, an orthodontist. A section of the İnegöl Kent Müzesi is dedicated to him.
