Spend a Day in Hamilton OhioEdit:  June 2023 – I have come to realize that this post has some outdated information so I have deleted places that have since closed in Hamilton and will endeavor to make a day trip to Hamilton to make some updates this summer!  That being said, there’s still some good stuff here!

I’m not sure how I went thirty-some years without visiting the city of Hamilton.  Hamilton is a bit of a drive from our house, and until earlier this year I had no idea what this city had to offer.  I’m sure glad we have finally spent some time exploring that area!   Michael and I recently had the good fortune to get to have a special lunch date in  Hamilton  While we were driving to the restaurant I fell in love with the city.  I loved the small town, vintage feel the town has.  As we ate lunch we decided that we simply must go back to Hamilton, Ohio with our children in tow for a day of family fun.

On Spring Break this year we didn’t have any plans to go out of town because I was taking a graduate class and had too much work to do.  So our big outing for Spring Break with the kids was a day spent in Hamilton, Ohio.  Our family had such a fun day, and I’m sure this won’t be our last trip to Hamilton for fun and entertainment.  Here’s a list of the fun things we did while we were in Hamilton, I hope this post helps you plan your own outing there!

A Day Spent in Hamilton Ohio ::

Geocaching ~ One of our favorite FREE things to do as a family is to search for hidden geocaches.  It’s a little bit like a treasure hunt!  After our lunch and puppy visit we took a walk around Hamilton looking for hidden caches using the Geocaching App.   Not familiar with Geocaching?  Google it!  It’s really fun!  While we walked around hunting for geocaches we also enjoyed looking at some of the beautiful architecture of the older homes of Hamilton.  There are some historic gems all within walking distance of Main Street.




True West Coffee ~ Lucky for this Mama (who was losing energy after the big lunch and long walk) our Geocaching led us to a charming coffee shop, True West Coffee.   While the kids searched for a geocache outside I snuck in to get an iced coffee, it was scrumptious.  And I loved the unique decor inside the coffee shop.  It looks like a perfect place to meet up with friends or to work away from home on the laptop, or to just sit and read a book because it was such a peaceful and welcoming space.   I hope I make it back there again on another visit to Hamilton!

True West Coffee is located at 313 Main Street in Hamilton.  Visit their Facebook page to learn more about them.



Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park and Museum ~ After walking around Hamilton we headed to the Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum.  It was a beautiful day to see some amazing art work!  Read  this post for more details about our trip to the Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park.
