Rob Williams: A one-tank trip to Yellow Springs

. -

Yellow Springs , Ohio is about an hour and a half, 70 miles, from downtown Cincinnati. 

The village is small with fewer than four thousand residents.  I have heard a lot about Yellow Springs over the years. Ohio Magazine called it the “Best Ohio Small Town.”  Budget Travel called it “One of America’s 10 Coolest Small Towns. 

Recently, I took the short trip to check it out for myself.  Totally worth the drive.  It’s a charming place surrounded by farms and fields.  Lots of trendy shops, restaurants and outdoor markets. 

The people felt eclectic and welcoming.  I stopped by the Sunrise Café for breakfast, and had the best pancake EVER!  It was thin, crispy and delicious.  Comedian Dave Chappelle lives in the area.  In fact, he supposedly hangs out in Dino’s Cappuccino. However, I looked in the windows and didn’t see him.

I did see a lot that I liked in Yellow Springs. Definitely worth the drive. Might be for you too.
