An Insiders Look

Here at the Butler County Visitors Bureau, we navigate these lively streets through the eyes of a local and the heart of a traveler. We write down every delicious dish, sip every craft brew, walk into each local shop, seize any and all outdoor opportunities, and never turn down a donut. We share our experiences and behind-the-scenes knowledge here, on the BC blog and we’re not the only ones buzzing with excitement about the adventures to be had in Southwest Ohio. Guest bloggers from across the country travel to Butler County to eat and play like a local. May you never lose your sense of wanderlust, we hope it guides you straight to a place that’s full of soul and authenticity. A place like Butler County.
