Springfield Farmers MarketWith a full list of suggestions, we got up early to start our day. One thing we were especially excited about was getting to visit the Farmers Market that was just within steps of our hotel. They are open summer long June through September on Saturdays from 9 am to 12:30 pm for all to enjoy. You’ll find 35+ great vendors with everything from locally grown veggies and produce, to locally produced baked goods and artisan wares. We observed quite a few vendors with stuff we liked. I think everyone will find a little bit of everything there.
Hartman Rock GardenOn to visit more places we decided to take advantage of visiting the Hartman Rock Garden. We are so glad we went to see this amazing piece of art and dedication as I call it. Keep this in mind. It’s not where you think it might be. This exhibit is located in someone’s backyard and is located in a normal neighborhood of houses in Springfield, Ohio. You can tell this was a labor of love to be enjoyed by people of all ages. It is open 365 days a year (well 366) in leap years from Dawn to Dusk. They do take donations, and we did leave a small one to show our appreciation of what went into this project.
So much more to do in Springfield, OhioWith so much to do here are some of the amazing destinations and experiences that should be on your list. Check out some of them with the links provided.
- Westcott House – If you are someone who likes classic architecture. If you are a huge Frank Lloyd Wright fan. Then this will be a destination that needs to be on the list of your visit to Ohio.
- Dark Star Books – This unique bookstore is located a little over 10 minutes away from Springfield, in a little town called Yellow Springs. My wife and I personally visited this store on our own and we each found things we were both interested in. Anything from classical to eclectic and everything in-between. I found a classic version of The Catcher in The Rye and some books on drawing.
- There is also the Mike & Rosy’s Grill that has been a staple in Springfield, Ohio for over 35 years serving the community and students from the local Mike & Rosy’s Grill. My wife and I were provided a meal here, and we took advantage of the tasty subs. This place was adorned with tons of sports memorabilia from all sports and all time frames.
