Hidden Treasures in Hyde Park and Loveland, Ohio


Hyde Park is an upscale, trendy and centrally located town a few miles from Downtown Cincinnati, Ohio.  A few days ago, I was shopping in the area and took a few photographs.

These brightly painted outdoor planters are so pretty!  Come Spring…they’ll be even prettier!

On the way to Hyde Park, I stopped in the quaint town of Loveland, Ohio, which is about a 20 minute drive from Hyde Park.  I went into this store and asked if I may take some photos and was told no…so I took one of the front.  I thought it was quite pretty…especially for wintertime!  They’re preparing for Spring!

This empty bicycle planter is located along the Loveland Bike Trail.

This is “Goldie Hocks”…one of the many painted pigs you’ll find around Cincinnati.

I took this photo because I like the red brick and the wrought iron.

The “Cock and Bull Restaurant and Bar” is very popular.

The architecture and color of this building is interesting to me.

Even in the winter…there are places to see, people to meet, and things to do!

  4. Oh Sherry, You have brought back many good memories from my days in Cincinnati. I spent a lot time in Hyde Park…such a pretty area of Cincinnati. Graeters ice-cream shop was my favorite. It became very popular across the USA after Oprah had it on her show many years ago. So now they sell it across the USA. We have a couple of flavors of Graeters ice-cream at The Fresh Market here in Charlotte, NC. I may have to drive over to The Fresh Market today! Mangia!

I'd love to hear what you have to say
