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.

I've lived in Butler County my whole life, it's pretty alright. There's nothing super spectacular about it. I live near the city of Hamilton and they have a great arts district and a statue of Alexander Hamilton in front of the county court house, so that's pretty lit. I went to Ross high school and I still live around that community. Almost everyone is conservative around here. It's an old farming town, so that's not too surprising. I would say there's an above average population of alt-right conservatives though. There was a scare last year that the high school would have been the latest victim of the mass shooting epidemic ravaging the country that law makers do absolutely nothing about. The kid went to a gun trade and ended up getting shot and killed before he could. But yea, pretty okay County.
I have enjoyed the area and not too far from attractions. It does have limited diversity, yet very friendly people. There are many restaurants and family activities to assist with downtime. Butler county is not too far fro the interstate and has the ability to be in the middle of both the bigger cities of Dayton, Ohio and Cincinnati, Ohio. There are many types of choices in neighborhoods from very rural to right in the middle of the busy towns. I enjoy living outside the city limits and away from a lot of traffic. Highly recommend the area to any new comers.
