A day of antiquing and uncovering hidden gems really doesn’t get much better unless you cap it off with a delicious bite to eat and an old-fashioned ice cream treat. That’s just what you’ll do when you follow this fun day trip that will take you to Ohio Valley Antique Mall in Fairfield and to The Cone in West Chester. If you think that’s pure perfection, you’ll probably love that you only need a tank of gas for the entire trip.
In fact, you won’t spend too much time in the car at all, leaving plenty of time for shopping and eating. Google Maps offers three routes between Ohio Valley Antique Mall and The Cone, the two shorter of which span just 8.6 miles. Both take around 20 minutes. However, if you’re looking to save time, follow the main route that tallies 10.6 miles in just 16 minutes, not considering traffic.
Can you think of a more relaxing way to spend a day than shopping for hidden treasures at the Ohio Valley Antique Mall followed by a meal and ice cream at The Cone? (Here are the Google Map directions.) That’s just the beginning of the fun that awaits in Ohio.
