Hamilton Ohio? If you’re not from Ohio you may not have heard of this small town north of Cincinnati.
My initial reaction of Hamilton was it was very historic. For a town named after Alexander Hamilton, I should have expected that. The first thing you’ll notice, apart from the historical buildings, in Hamilton is their appreciation of the arts. From painted building murals to statues, this town has plenty to see.
Two nights in Hamilton, here’s what we did:
Places we ate:
Neal’s Famous BBQ – Easy decision, just go. Its not the style BBQ I was born and raised on in Texas (nothing ever is), but this was some good BBQ. I had the chopped chicken sandwich, Mac n cheese and potato salad. If you can’t decide on anything like me, get that combo, you won’t be disappointed!
Karen’s Pizzeria – Very small mom and pop Italian food, if you’re there on a Friday go for the combo lasagna, salad, bread, and drink. Solid deal if you are hungry.
Hyde’s Restaurant – We had breakfast here so I can’t speak for anything else other than the biscuits and gravy. The epitome of family run, home cooked food.
Things we saw:
Walking around Hamilton Ohio is very nice. If you happen to be there on a Saturday they have a farmers market around the old court house. There are many painted murals around town. See if you can find them all!
Interesting fact about Hamilton Ohio:
If you fly into CVG (Cincinnati/NorthernKentucky International Airport) like we did you’ll end up driving through 3 states before you get to Hamilton. Kentucky -> Indiana -> Ohio
