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
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.
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.
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.
