Heritage Oak Park
Even in the land of 1,000 backyards, it’s still fun to check out a community park. Just off Ohio Route 42, the sprawling Heritage Oak Park has walking trails, play structures, tennis and basketball courts, and soccer fields as far as the eye can see. 4601 Ohio Route 42

Main Street Sweets
This polite little shop offers old-fashioned candies and other traditional treats alongside more hedonistic confections like chocolate-covered Twinkies. And if sweets aren’t your thing, pick up some freshly popped popcorn, just $1 a scoop. 200 E. Main St., (513) 492-9557

Comets Pizza
What this teeny family-owned pizza parlor lacks in square footage, it makes up for in taste—and a sizeable menu of stromboli, calzones, and subs, plus pizzas cooked to order in a stone oven. The Perpetual Pepperoni is substantial and zesty and the Roasted Artichoke has a light garlic base topped with artichoke hearts, red peppers, red onions, and mushrooms. 124 E. Main St., (513) 398-2675

DuPriest Antiques
An entire wall stacked with shapely hurricane lamps. A bookshelf filled with vintage milk glass candy dishes shaped like…chickens. For those with a weakness for antiques from the odd to the extraordinary, this very crowded shop is a must-see. 207 W. Main St., (513) 459-8805

The Wildflower Café & Coffee House
Wildflower is a locavore hero, stocking the menu with local, sustainable, organic food and drink. A standout: the organic cheese board, with Amish butter cheese, raw sharp cheddar, crumbled blue cheese drizzled with local honey, fresh fruit, and a warm marinated olive medley. 207 E. Main St., (513) 492-7514
