Cox Arboretum MetroPark

This beautiful 189-acre facility is a special place for visitors to escape among trees, shrubs, specialty gardens, mature forests, and prairies. The arboretum hosts year-round educational programs that teach children and adults about sustainable horticulture, plant science, and conservation. Cox Arboretum MetroPark is also home to a native-Ohio Butterfly House.

Reviewed By Mehrad S - Toledo, Ohio

We visited the place at the end of the day. The park is relatively small, yet refreshing and nice. There were no butterflies in the butterfly house (maybe because of time). I can hardly remember my toddler so happy in a park. Wish there were butterflies for her to watch.

Wright B Flyer Aircraft Museum

Reviewed By TriStateGirl - Cincinnati

We toured the new fourth hangar with Presidential airplanes and experimental aircraft - including a flying saucer. I was surprised at how small the early sidential planes were. The facilities are very, very clean. The volunteers who staff the museum are very, very friendly and helpful. Many of them shared stories about the planes and about their experiences. We've visited the museum several times over the years but joined as friends of the museum this visit because we felt we wanted to support the effort made to preserve not only aircraft but history. It is amazing to see all of these aircraft restored and available for the public.

Carillon Historical Park

Reviewed By Brent H - Dover, Delaware

Going in the middle of the week was a good choice. I got a personal walk around inside the transportation museum and the Wright museum. Both of these are well worth the visit, not to mention everything else on the grounds. There are some historical artifacts that you cannot see anywhere else as they literally don't exist. The grounds are lovely and I would love to come back when the weather is nice. The staff is excellent as well. I haven't been to a museum where the docents were that helpful in a long time. As an added bonus a young bald eagle pair has just established a nest above the Wright museum and you can see them flying around or sitting in the trees. Very neat experience.

Lock 27 Brewing

Reviewed By Jeri N

Great option for higher-end food and craft-brew beers. They have expanded their menu over the years, and rather than exotic snacks, you can order real meals that are unique. The locale is small, but inviting--and a great choice for friends and couples. No kids, though!

Stubbs Park

Reviewed By SavantIII_11 - Centerville, Ohio

´Tis a grand day.

Stubbs Park is a Centerville City park; While Centerville founded in 1796, is dedicated to maintaining its historical heritage, the City of Centerville housing market ranges in price from $160,000 to over $1,000,000 (including many highly restrictive local zonings and community covenants.)

Forward thinkers and planners insured that a network of Green Spaces, including city parks, township parks, Metro Parks, and state parks would guarantee abundant nearby nature areas.

Stubbs Park is a wonderful multi-purpose park featuring family centered activities. The Amphitheater provides many varieties of local entertainment.

Stubbs Park is also home to a dedicated memorial to U.S. Armed Forces.

Today, Stubbs Parked was filled with families, couples, and several sports teams.

Family and friends celebrated my grandson's thirteenth birthday at Laser Web. I highly recommend the facility. The guests had fun in a variety of mazes. The facility is well-organized, the staff helpful. The event was so impressive that some guests asked for information to do the same for their special celebrations. A must do to party on!

I wanted to give a special shout out to our amazing bus driving Bob. He was great and tolerated the craziness that ensued on our boss’s going away party. The bus was top notch and I would recommend your company to anyone who asks. Thanks for making our event extra special.
