How to Spend A Weekend in Butler County, Ohio: Days 2 & 3

After our jam-packed first day in Butler County, we were ready to tackle day two and three. If you’re planning a weekend in Butler County, here are more than a few ideas for activities while you’re there: 

Hit the donut trail

I mentioned in my last post that Butler County is home to the nation’s only Donut Trail, so it made sense to start our day there. We paid a visit to my old-time favorite, Holtman’s Donuts, and then ventured over to Kelly’s Bakery in Hamilton. Both were equally mouthwateringly-delicious, and writing about this makes me wish I had a few donuts in front of me right now…

Tour the Butler County Historical Society

After we got our sugar fix, we drove to the Butler County Historical Society for a tour. Kathy was our guide, and she was extremely knowledgeable about the area and the home’s past.

Because why not? 

Have a picnic at the Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park

It was a beautiful fall day, so after grabbing sandwiches from Alexander’s Market and Deli, we drove to Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park for a picnic. An Art Fair event was happening that day, so we had the chance to walk around and explore the different booths.

Shop for pumpkins at the Niederman Family Farm Fall
Festival

I love pumpkin patches and anything seasonal, and the Niederman Family Farm Fall Festival did not disappoint. We toured the grounds and picked up a pumpkin to take home.

Grab dinner at Comb’s BBQ

We ended our Saturday with delicious barbecue with all the fixin’s at Comb’s BBQ. After a day filled to the brim with activities, it was just what we needed. 

DAY 3

Grab more donuts 

Because two donut shops are not enough. On our third day in Butler County, we made pits stops at The Donut House and Stan the Donut Man. I ate more donuts than I ever have in my entire life, and it was the greatest thing ever.

Stop for coffee

Visiting local coffee shops is something I love to do every time we travel, so I was excited to see Cavu Coffee on our itinerary. The atmosphere was cozy, and the almond milk latte was rich and creamy — the perfect morning pick-me-up.

Race GoKarts

If you’re looking for a bit of family fun (or any kind of fun, honestly), then a visit to The Webb in West Chester is a must. Fritz and I raced GoKarts, played putt putt and a few rounds of classic arcade games, like Ski Ball.

Explore the Voice of America Museum of Broadcasting

I grew up not too far from the Voice of America Broadcasting museum, and I never realized how significant this building was in history. While I’ve driven by it many times, I had never actually been inside until this weekend. If you’re a fan of history, add this stop to your list.
