Yellow Springs, Ohio
My husband had a few days off so we took a day trip to Yellow Springs, Ohio.
It was a perfect day, with a gorgeous blue sky and puffy white clouds.
Yellow Springs is a fun place to visit for a day trip or weekend adventure.
The hippie town boasts an array of entertaining activities that appeal to a range of visitors.
The top Yellow Springs attractions are hiking, biking, shopping and dining.
First we stopped at Young’s Jersey Dairy. There were so many kids activities that it was packed.
They are known for their ice cream.
We watched the employees fill the cups of ice cream that they sell.
They also were making cheese, another big seller for Young’s.
They were ready for fall.
Next we went to the small “Hippie Town” of Yellow Springs.
It is a very colorful town with many places to get a bite to eat.
They love their plants and flowers.
I loved this plant in front of someone’s home. Does anyone know what it is called?
They have so many cute little shops.
They even have a “World Famous” ice cream stand. Lol
We headed to Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve.
There are multiple areas to see.
We walked this short paved trail through the woods.
We were able to see the water from a deck that they built for viewing.
This was their Hyde Road Covered Bridge. It was so strange because we drove through neighborhoods to get to it. There was very little water beneath the bridge that was built in 2014.
I can never pass up a large farm market.
It was tempting but I didn’t buy any flowers.
They had a fun store with so many products to buy.
I had to buy something!
We were getting hungry and had passed this restaurant on our way to Yellow Springs. If you have never eaten at a Der Dutchman, you are missing out. There is one in Amish Country, where we go too, and this one was just as delicious.
If you’re ever in the area, take a day and visit this fun little towns of Yellow Springs.
