My husband and I went on a weekend trip arranged by the Butler County Visitor’s Bureau in Butler County Ohio. Most of our trip was included. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own.
I’ve always wanted to go on an adventurous weekend with my husband but never knew where to start. What would we do? Where could we go that would (or could) have everything we wanted to do? Would we be driving all around the state? So, I never made it very far. However, I found out that we not only had plenty of adventure not too far from our house but they have basically something for everyone.
I’m talking about Butler County OH.
First of all, special thank you to AC Hotel by Marriott. They were awesome when we had any questions, had a pool and hot tub we could relax in and gave us the best room! We were in the room right in the middle of the hotel so we could see all of Liberty Center. It was amazing!
On to the next stop
We had a personal tour with Jared (who was awesome). He showed us the coolest food and all the international offerings you could ever imagine. We had to stop ourselves from filling a cart to bring things home. I have literally thought about taking the kids down to Jungle Jim’s during the week to check it out when we have nothing else to do. I’m sure they’ll love looking at all the Chinese candy.
We also happened to have been in town during the International Craft Beer Festival hosted by Jungle Jim’s. This was a dream for my husband. They had over 100 breweries showcasing more than 400 beers, including a few unique brews you won’t be able to find at your typical beer festival. I even got to taste some ciders. I’m not a beer person. But Paul was in his element.
If you’ve watched any of my husband’s videos, you’d know that we did skydiving first thing in the morning Saturday. We went to Start Skydiving which is located in Middletown OH.
Then we got our Art on!
After spending some down time walking around the Liberty Center Mall, we headed to the Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum. Pyramid Hill is an outdoor museum focusing on monumental pieces of sculpture in an environment of meadows, forests, and various gardens. Adults are $8 and children are $3. You can also rent an “Art Cart” to get around the grounds starting at $20 (for the first hour).
I’ve never been kayaking or canoeing. Yes, I know. I live such a sheltered life. LOL! But Kayaking always sounded so much fun to me. So I was happy that Jim of Jimco’s Riverside Pizza & Kayaking was willing to take a ride with us on the river.
I can’t believe everything that we fit into a weekend but we enjoyed it. Make sure you check out Butler County Visitors Bureau to see what you and your family can get into in a weekend. If you haven’t already, check out my husband’s vlogs from the weekend!
