One of my wife’s friends is taking her whole family to her son’s week-long youth baseball tourney in “Cincinnati” next month. Turns out “Cincinnati” is actually “Warren County somewhere between Lebanon and Mason.” And they’re staying in Miamisburg, because apparently that was the closest place with a group rate.
Does anyone in the area have recs for things they can do in their down time? Kings Island and a Reds game are already on the agenda.
EDIT: I tagged this Men’s Sports/Other because I guess that’s where a post about youth baseball fits?
I live in Warren County, near Mason. Miamisburg is about 40 minutes north of me, but I’m not very familiar with what’s around there.
Kings Island is a good choice, as is a Reds game. Although you’re looking at about an hour drive to get downtown. You may want to look at the Dayton Dragons schedule. They’re the Reds single A team and only about 15 minutes from Miamisburg. They have a very nice stadium for a single A team. Just a thought.
Liberty Center and Streets of West Chester are two entertainment/food/shopping areas nearby. That’s where the top golf is as well as movie theaters, bowling, etc.
I totally forgot about Caesar Creek! Great spot to find fossils and back in the day, we launched model rockets from there in the winter. Some very poorly made ones at that. I recall my friend Trevor launching one that went completely sideways and almost took out his dad’s Country Squire. Good times!
The vineyard will have food the kids can enjoy while the parents enjoy a couple glasses of wine. It’s not a lot different than going to a Korean BBQ place (in the sense that you cook the food yourself) with the whole family and the adults get a drink.
This was going to be my suggestion but I don’t think it opens until August.
Waynesville can be a really great option. I grew up near there and while I tease the “antique capital of the Midwest,” it’s a cute little village to spend some time walking. I think the Hammel House Inn is now under different management than when I worked there, but the history behind the building makes it a really unique place to get some food.
