Okay Wanderers looks like we are live and walking in downtown Hamilton Ohio got to say this is a place.

I know absolutely nothing about um, so I, don't really even know where to go.

I just parked the Beast right over here and we are at the corner of Third Street and High Street, hey Fox Tech.

How are you good to see you all right? Let's try and straighten out this gimbal a little bit.

Oh we'll just uh walk and try and straighten it out as we go better and that's a little bit too much there.

We go I! Think that's good.

Okay, I'll stop fussing with it.

Okay, so, like I said, Hey Ron, hello, hello, um I am in Hamilton Ohio and we are doing a live.

Walk I'm, exploring a city I've never been to I was going to go to Cincinnati, but then I started looking around at places near Cincinnati.

That I haven't been to yet and Hamilton caught my eye.

So I don't know anything about Hamilton, but let's check it out.

Hey Sarah, welcome, welcome, I'm, doing well, I hope, you're doing well too.

Hmm uh there's a sign down here that says German Village, so I want to check that out, see what it's all about.

It is uh kind of cold.

So, let's see we'll do a weather check to get started today.

Hamilton 30 degrees, 30 degrees, that's not very many degrees.

All right well, I am uh duly sorry for the lack of streams.

Lately it's been cold very cold.

There was an ice storm.

There was all kinds of stuff and a bit a little busy at work, so I apologize for that, but I'm back and I'm streaming and I'm excited to be with all of you remember.

We are less than 50 days now from our trip to Japan.

So that's coming soon and I've been doing quite a bit of uh prep work for that bucket list trip of a lifetime.

Let's see what German Village is like: hey, Colleen, hello, good to see you, it's like a really old YMCA over here.

So Hamilton is Northwest of Cincinnati proper, not too far from Dayton Ohio, very old town from what I saw coming in oh YWCA, not YMCA, so a young women's Christian, Association, hello, Yara, welcome very old church over there too YWCA, and this is apparently German Village.

It looks like an old neighborhood, barbecue restaurant happy, bunny, hello, good, to see you a cool old building.

It's almost like a castle.

Ron says: is it far from Cleveland, yeah, yeah I think we're about maybe three and a half hours south of Cleveland an hour south of Columbus Southwest of Columbus.

Maybe an hour and a half some I may be a little bit off there.

Yaris says: what's the temperature now it's 30 degrees Fahrenheit here a little bit of sunshine.

Warming me up it's a pretty day, but it is cold for sure.

That's, a really cool old building too.

Look at that.

One really neat all right: Third Street Music here, maybe a recording studio.

Oh look at the sign on the building up there, March 25th 1913, the flood level was up there.

There is a river that way we'll go check it out.

Here, in a little bit, let's say a public library right up here on the corner and I have seen a lot of Social Service type buildings, so I do get the sense that maybe a little bit of hard times in the area in terms of public support, halfway houses that sort of thing but I might be over reading into what I'm, seeing yeah, really amazing old library building.


Look at this, that is, cool, I love, the brick sidewalks too there's another flood level sign so I guess the flood was kind of a big deal here in 1913 I've got all these signs.

German Village! Oh look at this house, the Lane hooven house yikes.

This is what is going on with the gimbal sorry guys too much there.

We go that's about right! All right! Let's check out this house wow! Look at this! It's very pretty the Lane hooven house built in 1863, hey yari's here.

What's up Yari, that is a cool looking house really neat.

This whole neighborhood is really pretty.

Isn't it lots of cool old homes and beautiful weather today, so this little area of Hamilton is called German Village, Charming, brick, sidewalks, brick, roads, old Victorian homes, pretty neat Sarah, says bet that house is haunted, probably so, or at least purported to be foreign looks like uh.

The end of German Village is up at the end of the next block and maybe some factories down the road Beyond.

Maybe we should go down this way.

Let's walk to the end of the block, a little grocery store there, ham store it connected very pretty Yari, says nice weather it is it's really beautiful, really pretty out here all right, I think we go back this way now.

Sarah says it's beautiful in Wales, too I, don't doubt it Wales was one of my favorite places.

I've ever been, we had such good weather, exploring the coasts all the way from Cardiff all the way up to landed, no gorgeous place.

All right, so I think we'll go right here see if we can walk down to the river there's a business up.

There called a game night board, game, parlor and Tavern.

That sounds interesting.

Doesn't it a board game Tavern? You already asked where I parked the Beast back on High Street, that away just found a parking spot on the street and hopped out to start walking uh.

We are uh celebrating today by the way, we're almost at our anniversary of the channel, which is on February 22nd.

Oh look at this one: wow hey Leela! What's up, but not only are we about to start year three we are almost to 3 000 subscribers, so we should hit that in this stream today, pretty darn exciting.

So two full years of bit of a wander and that'll happen on February 22nd Navy Seals, as you can escape Ohio I love, Ohio, there's a lot of diversity in Ohio in terms of different types of cities and lots of small towns, river towns, big college towns, Great Lakes, the Ohio, River yeah.

It's a cool place, there's a lot going on.

It's a big state but yeah.

It should be a a day of Celebration as we roll over 3 000 subscribers.

Look at this blue house.

That's pretty! So this is Second, Street, I! Guess we'll walk down this street and then come back to Second Street.

This blue one is really pretty, isn't it.

Thank you, everybody for the kind words.

Thank you for the support too.

This channel literally wouldn't exist without you, so just rolled over 2 000 subscribers on the second Channel, which was a big deal and now about to get to 3 000 on this channel right in time to go to Japan so year, three is going to be the the biggest year yet for the channel, as we continue to expand internationally do collaborations with other YouTubers and grow grow, grow grow also planning a beach trip to Florida go.

Do some Sunset walks on the beach, ah Ron's having some KFC tasty chicken I think this is the river up here.

I like this green one, this little mint, Greenhouse too yeah the weather today is great, so crisp and clear, it's cold, but it's nice, so we're still in German, Village, apparently Yari says Yokoso welcome to Japan, oh wow yeah, the river for sure.

Here we are look at this everybody boom right here that looks like a fairly major Factory over there and the windows all look new, so it looks like it's being kind of redone.

So let me zoom in a little I'll show you foreign yeah.

It looks like- maybe if you see up here to the left that it used to all be abandoned, and maybe this one on the right here is all being rebuilt, looks like this.

One down here is still abandoned, so maybe some stuff being rebuilt and reclaimed and I'm not sure, is that the Little Miami River.

Let me check I'm gonna, look here.

The great Miami River I'm, not sure why I wanted to call it little.

It's not very little.

It's the great Miami River and the University of Miami Ohio is right in this community as well foreign.

We will not stop, we will keep going.

You can't make us stop.

Let's go back up here to Second Street and then we'll head down Second Street.

Until we get back to High, Street keep exploring yeah we're pretty close to Miami University of Ohio in Ohio yeah Miami uh is a name that I believe is a a Native American tribe name, so you'll see Miami as a place name in multiple States I'm, not super educated.

On that front, the William C Wilkes Carriage House, so you can see the gate in the side where the carriages used to go and park.

So this the German Village Carriage House, oh even prettier, on this side, wow, look at that! That's beautiful! Very pretty! Oh Yari! Thank you for that bit of information.

Thank you, good information.

Thank you Yari.

This was Village Street that we were walking down and let's get back on Second, Street and head this way, not a ton of people out and about because, like I said, it's very cold out here today, another big old home.

Here, it's huge.

This one's been subdivided into other homes and then this one is the Butler County Historical Society this one right here, but all very well cared for meticulous cool bell too I wonder where that was reclaimed from very pretty and then another row of older homes across the street.

This one is now an insurance office I like this one, a lot and then a real estate firm up here for properties in the village.

Oh we've got a flock of geese up here on the lawn okay, let's go say: hi to the Canadian geese: hey yeah.

These homes are beautiful, very pretty properties and massive homes.

There must have been a lot of money in this community I think it was uh.

This community was founded in the late 1700s, so not too long after the founding of the country, 1780s or 1790s.

A lot of these river towns are very old.

Navy SEAL says: will you go downtown later? Are you talking downtown Hamilton or downtown Cincinnati, because I am looking to explore downtown Hamilton, but probably not walking Cincinnati today, all right? This is the Markham Park on the riverfront here and here's our friends, the geese we'll go over and say hi fairy elephant welcome home from work hope.

It was a good day, another row of little colorful homes over here, yeah very nice.

It looks like there's a Performing Arts venue over here, the statuary over here and a gang of a gang of Canadian geese over here.

Get out of here geese go back to Canada, eh whoa and a Minefield of goose poop dodged, the goose poop Dodge it dodge it.

Dodge the goose poop, oh geese, you're, making Hamilton a tough place to be stop it I'm tired of this crap, that's crap, and this crap over here it's out of control geese, but they are pretty crazy, Poopers, crazy, boopers! Oh, we got a cute doggie up here, just have to watch out for the the goose poops.

It's a minefield.

Foreign looks like some new condo buildings up here, so these are called The Markham.

Building right next to Markham Park makes sense.

Fairy elephant says, looks like a nice bright day.

It is it's gorgeous.

It is absolutely gorgeous here, I'm learning.

What makes Hamilton unique and cool place my first time here all right, we're heading back towards High Street, it's a cool mural over there, here's the YMCA we saw the YWCA earlier.

This is Wildfire, looks like a cool restaurant yeah.

It looks cool up here.

We've got the Hamilton Parks Conservancy, building, that's cool, so some intentional work on parks in the city.

It's honestly a bigger place than I thought.

It was going to be and I looked at it on the map.

So that's kind of cool Navy SEAL says it looks like you're.

The only person in the entire city it is, it is a little quiet.

I will say for a Saturday morning.

Leela asks the million dollar questions.

Do you research before you go to a place, or do you throw a dart at a map uh, something in between those two things: I, don't just throw a dart at a map, but I do just pull up Google, Maps and just scroll around looking at different places and kind of getting a feel for.

Does it look interesting, Are there parks are there things to see um, just flipping it around? On Google Maps a little bit and if it looks sufficiently interesting for a walk, then I just drop a pin and and head over I.

Don't do a ton of research beyond that, so this channel is really about walking together and exploring.


You know me pretending to be an expert on Hamilton Ohio or the places that I visit, because I'm not I'm, I'm a Wanderer, and so this channel is more about going and exploring and seeing new things, and you know as much as possible as many times as possible, going to some place.

We've never been before so that we can learn more together, looks like a community garden over here.

Look at this.

This Garden is by Arts based artists.

Please do not enter without an invite, so it's winter, of course, but you can see, said Rosemary over here.

We've got some herbs, but I bet.

This is really pretty in the middle of the oh wow holy crap.

Look at that a bird Taking Flight marrow yeah, so uh picking places to visit I just find a place that looks interesting and believe it or not.

That's what I did for my Japan trip too I just moved Google Maps around the whole country, looking at interesting, looking places and then made sure I could get there via train and and went for it.

I like that mural! That's cool Layla really wants to live near Hilton, Head, ah beautiful, expensive, but beautiful, and this is a cool little Park here.

What's your exclamation point share your art and keep it positive.

Huh, that's cool! That's cool too! Summon growl, hello, hello, hello! Long time, no see great to see you great to have you here today, people with us so far today! That's awesome.

If you're new, please be sure to jump into the chat and say hello, I, don't see any art any chalk here, so I, don't think we'll be able to add our art here, be a better human good idea.

Love yourself! Yes, Hamilton! Yes, new views, fitting and Strauss.

That seems like an advertisement um, but whatever it's a cool old art, deco Bank building over here, let's keep exploring and download the app that's the kind of thing I don't do, but I do like Hamilton.

It's kind of neat all right.

It says here we are in the central business.


I've got a handy sign here.

We are here, that's the Butler County Courthouse right there, salmon growl, says uh two hours from Lexington yeah yeah.

It was about two.

It was about two hours, all right, there's German Village, that's where we were, and we saw that church and looks like there's a bike trail up against the river and looks like there's a park on the other side of the river.

So we should definitely go check out that Park and it looks like their sculptures in the park.

Their sculptures here, sculptures in the park, looks like there's some stuff right across the river, some shops and restaurants, and it's like tons of shops and restaurants on this block.

We'll come back down this block.


So let's uh head this way, we can check out the courthouse and cross the river.

It's the same city on both sides of the river, sometimes with a river splits.

A city you'll have two different towns, but in this case it's Hamilton on both sides of the river I, wonder if it was named for Alexander Hamilton how's it going uh YouTube yeah.

What is it about? Hamilton, uh, yeah I'm, doing a walk around Hamilton, really yeah dude? What uh? What what stuff uh the channel is called the fit of a wander yeah yep and I walk around different cities in the United States and around the world.

Hamilton! No, no I'm from Kentucky, oh okay! Yeah! That's awesome! Are you from this area? Yeah I live I live in town, but then uh, Chicago, Thailand yeah, that's great yeah I'm about to go to Japan in April.

It sounds great yeah.

We got a friend in Vietnam right now: you're welcome to Hamilton I'm, really enjoying it time's a special part.

It looks like too yeah.

They have hairy Oaks, yeah I was just down walking around Germany, Village, okay and then Markham Park down here so and then uh keep going across the bridge and I.

Don't need more shops and stuff like that.

So I'll check it out enjoy brother, hey thanks.

Man, Jr, is in the house: I just met a local hamiltonian I think they're called hamiltonians um and he was telling me he loves the city and he's a photographer.

He travels all around Daniel.

What's up Daniel's here JR's here we got the whole gang.

I love it uh, but he was telling me it's a cool place to live with a ton of Art and a ton of um a ton of liveliness in the evenings.

So he was telling me where to get where to go for karaoke and everything, a very nice guy, very nice guy, oh and here's, an art gallery and boutique right here, happy bunny, everywhere I go right.

Uh people want to talk to the guy with the gimbal.

That's for sure we are Hamilton.

It says up here: um we're a city of sculpture, I've noticed that there's a lot of public art you can see on the flag there.

We are Hamilton city of school, that's pretty good foreign! This is the administrative building across from the courthouse, but we're going to go up here and cross the river Jr you're.

Welcome for doing the Clarksville walk! No problem at all I always seek to uh.

If somebody tells me that they'd like to see a place- and it's kind of in my neck of the woods I never mind to go check that place out good to see everybody here for a live stream, looks like a pretty Street down that way too.

Oh, look at the mural on the side of this one, I love that it's got, bears and ducks dudes eating Donuts I, like it all right, red light, but no traffic anywhere inside there.

This is called lintel, Park, I guess named after beans.

Let's see this park was established by the Hamilton.

What is it? Why is it called lentil, Park, Mrs Mallard and her eight ducklings? Oh, so this is by the person who did Make Way for Ducklings, very cool and we've got a kid with a dog right here.

Let's go check out the sculpture, but they love their sculptures.


That's neat I, like that public art is a good thing to take pride in, and it looks like they've purposefully left some of the bricks out here.

To give it a different kind of feel on the walkway I like that Charming, this is charming.

So it's a kid walking around with his owner harmonica with his dog, listening and walking, just behind JR says, looks like a beautiful city.

Is it cold? It's very cold.

It is very cold.

So, let's see if it got above freezing.

Yet it's 11 A.M here local time and it is yeah just got above freezing 33 degrees, Fahrenheit all right.

What do we have here? A memorial building.

It says it's open.

Um looks like a Civil War Memorial, looking at the statue on top.

Potentially this is the Frederick G Mueller building, it's an art, deco structure erected as a municipal building renamed in 2008.

It was completed in 1935.

Wow looks like a fortress.

Doesn't that look like a fortress? Oh look! It's got a bell here, how's it going like a replica of the Liberty Bell here, yeah Pennsylvania.

It says it's a it's! A full replica of the Liberty Bell I, wonder if it has a crack in it.

Nope! No crack and I love the kind of concrete sculptures here.

All right.

We're gonna cross the bridge and check out over there and then we're gonna come back over here and check out all of this stuff on this side.

So I promise we're coming back to that.

Memorial Building looks really interesting.

What a pretty day oh George is here: hey George.

How are you? How are you all right? Here's the this is called Monument Avenue, that's interesting, and this is Heritage Hall all right and we've got a it's called The High, Street Bridge, it's a cool sculpture right there, hey ravish is here hello, ravisha good to see you.

This Fountain was conceived and sponsored by the mothers and dads service.

Club Nate may all who pause and are refreshed here reflect on those who went forth from their homes to defend American freedom.

So a memorial water fountain- and this is the bike trail that runs down here along the river, so that whole thing is a bike.

Trail I, wonder how far it goes looks like a long way.

Let's go over here, so we can get a look at the the bridge we're about to cross.

That's pretty! You know what this reminds me of this reminds me a little bit of birth in Scotland, not as old, not as historic but yeah.

It's kind of the vibe I'm getting if you guys have been to Perth.

Let me know what you think this reminds you a little bit of Perth beautiful beautiful day, good night, so crisp out here.

So this uh, if you weren't here earlier, this is the Greater Miami River or the great Miami River designated outdoor refreshment area, Dora, Dora, Dora Dora in this area you can purchase alcoholic beverages and within the Dora you can walk around, so you can get a drink and walk around lots of geese out on the river way down here, we'll zoom in on the geese.

Sarah says: yes, she gets a Perth Vibe yeah yeah, oh, and it looks like there's some uh like uh.

What is it called up here across the river uh uh? It's not a damn.

Oh I forget the name for that.

Hmm, let's keep going wow.

It does look like a cool shopping district up here on the other side of the bridge neat.

So it looks like on this side where we came from that's uh called High Street and on this side of the river it's called Main Street.

So this is going to be the Rossville historic district that we're going into I.

Guess we'll walk all the way down until we get to this statue that says Embrace that looks like the end of the historic district and then we'll we'll come out and there's another famous statue here it looks like and then maybe we'll check out this historic district here and then come back to the soldiers, Sailors and Pioneers Monument.

That's what that Monument building was all right yeah.

This is a fun walk, so we've been walking around 45 minutes, um we'll keep going.

This is a cool place, I'm very much enjoying this I hope.

Everybody else is too what a pretty pretty place and very interesting a lot bigger than I thought.

It was just looking at the map.

I guess it was next to hey Katrina's here.

What's up Katrina, it was next to Cincinnati on the map, so it looks smaller, but it it's not that small at all, it's cool! All right, let's head down to Main Street, here, check out the what'd.

Let's check out Main Street JR says the first three thousand of a million.

That would be something wouldn't it you guys be able to say you're here at the start.

Oh Rockaway says: there's some geese in Canada that stick around all year.

I did not know that I thought they all kind of migrated.

That's the word.

I was looking for North and South South through the winter North for the summer Etc.

These are cool.

Little stores, aren't they serif by the river, a Crystal Store, neat, petals and Wicks a scent bar welcome to Main Street.

Here's a US dollar store, yeah ravisha, who yeah they should jump into the chat and say it was me.

I was three thousand oh look at this uh Pub up here on the corner, Billy Yanks, it says 1866 that building was built crazy, nice art in the city for real yeah, really nice art in this city.

I like it a lot, that's a cool building and it looks like there's a a popular place up here.

People are waiting outside to get in.

Let's go see what that is, and I like how they've done art on all the utility boxes.


That's a cool thing.

That's a fun.

Mural looks like origami birds and light bulbs, flowers George says it seems like uh merely yesterday.

You were a random guy in te's, live chat.

That's right! I still am really.

What do we have going on here? Oh a bakery, a vegan bakery cool.

Excuse me pretty cool, so uh a lion outside the vegan bakery secretly shabby Lots going on lots to look at a lot of cool stores and restaurants.

Oh, we got five seconds, I think we'll go ahead and go for it.

Welcome to the Village parlor, so an ice cream shop here like an old school ice cream shop.

It's not open right now, but let's take a look in.

You can see the old soda counter very cool, true West coffee that doesn't sound like a bad idea, looks like it's kind of closed off here.

Let's go across the street over here.

Thank you that one made a beeping noise of it to at least tell me that it registered my button.

Push I wonder if we can go get a cup of coffee.

We probably could go right now, but we'll wait to be a good citizen.

Jr says I wonder if they still call the people behind the counter.

Soda Jerks I, don't know yeah! That's what you used to be called if you made, if you were handcrafting the sodas yeah, it was kind of cool to see oh Rockaway says, there's scandal in Toronto and the mayor resign.

Wow, I hadn't, heard that wow all the news I've been hearing lately has been about the the really terrible situation in turkey and Syria um heartbreaking, heartbreaking stuff, but it is encouraging to see the world coming together and offering support it's just such a tragedy.

All right looks like we got the light now.

Armstead park looks more like Armstead parking lot.

Oh here's one of those sculptures the person looking for rain.

It's interesting he's got his hand under his umbrella.

I'm sure.

That's a metaphor of some kind, all right! True, West coffee, please use side door.

Oh look at a drive-through going too cool I think we'll pass it looked a little busy in there.

I don't want to make you guys.


Ravisha says I'm one of the first 950.

Is there a way to tell what number you were? I didn't know that that's kind of cool Budokai, martial arts, the Legacy martial arts academy.

It looks packed wow good for them good for them all right.

Let's keep going up here, looks like Main.

Street keeps going for a little bit and then we'll go walk down and see if we can find some historic homes to look at too old service station.

It's a pretty old one here and looks like it's going to be a tequila bar soon interesting hope they don't have to knock it down.

Yeah I hope they can retain that structure for their tequila bar yeah.

It looks like some historic homes up this way, so we'll go up that way in a little bit and go see if we can see some of the older neighborhood in the historic district, russville historic district.

It is a lot of older kind of older buildings that have been maintained here, which is cool that looks like it just keeps going up the street here: wow, that's a nice little Main, Street shopping district, very alive I, very few vacant spaces and buildings looks like almost everything has a tenant in it, which is really cool to see kudos to whoever is running and organizing and planning downtown Hamilton.

Ohio nice job, pat on the back to you, Hamilton Planning, Commission, very neat I, like this blue building up here.

The main circuit so I recognize this building.

This used to be a video store and looks like it's been repurposed, so they're, even not knocking down the the old video stores and reusing them.

That's cool, very historic shopping center right here, restville Shopping Center, it's Hamilton's, Urban backyard, maybe a Farm to Table Restaurant there.

We could keep going that way but looks like I see a Walgreens and some other kind of national Brands up that way.

So I think we're gonna go this way and check out the city or check out some of the historic neighborhoods of the city.

One block over we'll just go one street over and then head back down towards the river looks like they're out, and this is the edge of where you're allowed to take alcohol.
