There is plenty to do in Butler County. Butler County offers a wide array of shopping malls, restraunts, movie theaters, amusment parks, or even festivals. It truely is a great community and I have met so many new people. People around here aren’t afraid to say hi or even help out one another. There is also alot of opportunities offered here! I go to a vocational school and learn about healthcare while I take my high school courses. I have volunteered at a church to help feed the less fortunate and found many new jobs. This place is a great place to live.

Butler County has it's ups and downs but this year I have seen a TREMENDOUS change in certain areas that just makes me smile! They are definitely doing a lot of great things uptown more toward the inner city. Kids have parks with water splashes available to them, they have the Great Miami River to look over. There are definitely a lot of new places up town that families can eat at (Neal's Barbecue, Alexander Cafe, High Street Cafe, Municipal Brewery etc. I am very pleased at how this great city has made Butler County progress.
I have grown up in Hamilon, Ohio and it is a great place. Hamilton City School Districts is awesome. They have great teachers and faculty. The city is pretty safe too. We have an awesome down town area with lots of small businesses that are phenomenal. Main street is the same as well. It's a great city to live in!
