Recently we FINALLY took one of those little family trips we’ve always talked about doing but never seemed to find the time for – we took a day trip up to Yellow Springs!
First of all, we absolutely love this town because it’s so eclectic and different than anywhere else around Dayton. My husband’s Aunt and Uncle also have lived there for many years, and it’s not far from Springfield where he grew up. My first experience in Yellow Springs was going there after I got my driver’s license the late 90’s to look for Phish and Dave Matthews Band bootlegs, and to find my newest pair of Dr. Marten boots or a great handmade cross-body bag. (Sigh. I am totally old.)
Fast forward to present day, and I was excited to visit Glen Helen to do some hiking with my hubs and three-year-old, drop into downtown YS find some funky shops with unique kids items, and maybe eat at one of the
local restaurants. Mission accomplished!
