Blog by Stacha Yundt

Ohio may still be a few final steps away from reopening entirely, but there's still plenty of fun to be found right here and now in Warren County. Here are just a handful of the awesome experiences visitors can enjoy today in Ohio's Largest Playground!

The Golden Lamb | Lebanon, Ohio

Dig in at an award-winning restaurant
Ohio's delectable dining scene is back in business, and some of the Buckeye State's best bites can only be found in Warren County. Take a break from your quarantine routine with a socially distanced - and downright delicious - breakfast, lunch or dinner at one the county's incredible eateries, like the iconic Golden Lamb in historic downtown Lebanon.

Say cheers at a local bar or winery
Toast the beginning of summer (or the end of quarantine) with a tasty pint or a glass of wine made right here in Ohio's Largest Playground! Sonder Brewing, 16 Lots Brewing Company, The Common Beer Co. and Crooked Handle Brewing Co. are all back in action, as is Valley Vineyards — Warren County's award-winning winery.

Explore the Little Miami Scenic River
Whether by bike or by boat, the Little Miami River is an unbeatable place to spend a summer afternoon. Visit Morgan’s Canoe & Outdoor Adventures or River’s Edge Outfitters to rent a canoe or kayak and paddle your way through the day. Or, swap out your paddles for peddles and cruise along the river's banks on the Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail.

Caesar Creek State Park | Waynesville, Ohio

Take a walk on the wild side
Hit the trails at Caesar Creek State Park for your daily dose of fresh air. With more than 43 miles of trails and a 2,300-acre lake, Caesar Creek makes for a great summer getaway. Hunt for fossils, take a boat ride, wander a sprawling beach, hike wooded trails, and then do it all again tomorrow after a night spent at the campground.

Experience (virtual) spine-tingling thrills
While we're still anxiously awaiting Kings Island’s opening day, adrenaline seekers can still conquer some of the theme park's most incredible coasters virtually on! Consider it a practice-run until we can all experience the real deal here shortly!

Plan a small-town shopping spree
Home to more than 100 locally owned boutique and antique shops, Ohio's Largest Playground is also one of the Midwest's very best bets for retail therapy. Take a socially-distanced stroll through Waynesville, Lebanon and more charming, historic Ohio towns, filling your bags with one-of-a-kind finds along the way.
