    Zanesville for pottery, also Blue Rock State Park nearby.

    In addition to Yellow Springs, Clifton with the gorge and mill is nearby. Pancake mix, made from green energy no less, it’s really a water-powered mill.

    Looks like their website is down:


    Take Rt. 161 west until it ends in a little town named Mutual, then keep going west to Urbana. It’s a beautiful drive, especially if you know moraines and eskers when you see them. Cedar Bog is on Rt 68 south of town:


    and Freshwater Farms is on 68 north of town, where else can you find a sturgeon petting zoo? You can buy fresh or smoked trout.


    Make any big loop north and east through the Amish country. Tip: If the turds aren’t flattened yet, the horse is not far ahead.

    Malabar Farm is now a state park that attracts thousands of visitors each year, but the “Big House,” which is on the National Register of Historic Places, is in desperate need of repair.

    LoopBackroads specializes in out-of-the-way daytrips
    JULY 23, 2012 AT 8:00 AM

    Robert Denhard has a passion for exploring, discovering, and learning about new things, and he wanted to use that passion to make a difference. With LoopBackroads, it’s arguable he’s doing just that.

    LoopBackroads, the startup Denhard launched this month, maps out daytrips (or “loops”) for those looking for adventures off the beaten path. One way LoopBackroads hopes to make a positive impact is by encouraging travelers to patronize the mom-and-pop shops that are the heart and soul of so many small towns.

    Covington Kentucky is a great night trip for adults. Stay at the Holiday Inn then walk down main street at night. There are tons of bars, sidewalk tables, it’s very German influenced. While you’re in the area have lunch the next day at Hofbrauhaus in Cincinnati.


    My next/upcoming supah day trip will be to the Museum of the Air Force at Wright Pat in Dayton. Is is free, close, huge and awesome.

    If it fits into your agenda, The Winds[/url] in Yellow Springs is worth a stop for lunch on the way there or dinner on the way home. If you can schedule around a Prix-FIxe or Bistro dinner, it’s an incredible value.
    People love Young’s Jersey Dairy, but waiting in line for ice cream isn’t something that appeals to me. Call me an old curmudgeon.
