Day 1
Waynesville, Ohio is known for its antique and unique shopping, and this quaint town is an adventure awaiting to happen. More than 40 shops line the main drag of this charming, historic town, and that’s where this weekend getaway begins.

Just walking the streets of this quaint town brings back memories of days gone by. Check out all the antique stores that line the streets of Waynesville, Ohio. From early American to art deco to 70’s kitsch – you never know what treasure you will find!  Some stores are like mini-malls, featuring multiple dealers.  If you’re looking for more than just antiques, there are also several specialty stores catering to holiday décor, quilting, and more.  Check out this blog for a guide to more of Waynesville’s charms.

A lunch break from retail therapy is a must.  Quaint restaurants such as Cobblestone Café and The Hammel House Inn serve up appetizing local produce that guests can enjoy from outside tables when the weather is warm. And their homemade desserts are a must-indulge!

My choice for relaxing before the next day’s adventure is to stay at a Warren County B&B.  There are many to choose from and the hospitality is top notch. Click here to choose from an 1800’s stagecoach stop, a castle (find more on this gorgeous B&B here) or a Victorian home to name a few.

Day 2
After a scrumptious homemade breakfast,  you will be energized for the day’s visit to visit Lebanon, Ohio, another charming small town known for its festivals and variety of stores and restaurants. In Lebanon, another 40+ unique shops await your exploration.

This historic city has been the setting for both major motion pictures and a Hallmark Channel holiday movie.  Home of the delightful Village Ice Cream Parlor & Restaurant (the best malts around), the historic Golden Lamb Restaurant & Inn (host to 12 U.S. presidents) and the Golden Turtle Chocolate Factory (the best dark chocolate almond bark that I have discovered in my many travels), Lebanon is a treat for history buffs, shoppers,  and foodies.

Oh Suzanna is just the stop for quilts and unique gifts. Ambassador Antiques has the most awesome antique furniture and quite an exquisite line of linens and baby gifts. Visit the Shaker gallery at the Warren County History Center. Green Country Market stocks products seen on Shark Tank, and has many one of a kind gifts. There is so much to do in Lebanon that you may have to spend another night!
