Funky Yellow Springs, Ohio

Yellow Springs, Ohio is one of the most eclectic small towns (that I’m aware of) within 100 miles of Cincinnati!  You’ll find Antioch College, founded in 1852, a progressive liberal arts college located in the heart of Yellow Springs.  After hiking at John Bryan State Park yesterday, we stopped here and walked the few blocks that comprise the main area of town.

Here are some of the treats we encountered…

This is the ceiling of the outdoor movie theater awning…

I love to find the unexpected…like the reflection in this glass…

Artists and “hippies” love to frequent this area.  The faint drifting scent of marijuana lingers here and there.  You’ll find hand painted benches…

And most of the shops are painted unusual colors…

Whimsical…colorful…fun…enticing…

Shimmering…..

I love the living tapestry inviting you into this restaurant…

You don’t have to look far to find beauty!
