Scenes Around German Village in Columbus, Ohio


A short visit to German Village in Columbus, Ohio

On our last day driving back from Annapolis, we stopped for lunch at German Village in Columbus, Ohio. We visited German Village a couple of years ago and fell in love. With a little time to mosey along, we decided to stop. German immigrants originally began settling in the area in the mid-1800's so there is incredible character and history in German Village. It is truly a special place to visit.

Eclat Chocolate in West Chester, Pennsylvania

Eclat Chocolate in West Chester, Pennsylvania

Chocolate. Chocolate somehow always makes it way into our road trips. I wonder how? Could it be that I love locally made chocolate?  While in Pennsylvania visiting family, we ventured into Eclat Chocolate in West Chester. On a previous trip to Pittsburgh, I savored an Eclat bar I discovered at a local chocolate shop. So, I was thrilled to have an opportunity to explore Eclat's Factory Store!

Longwood Gardens: History, Nature and Treehouses

Longwood Gardens: History, Nature and Treehouses

Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania is an intriguing blend of history and nature. The land has long been inhabited as indicated by Lenni Lenape spears that have been discovered on the property. Centuries after the first settlers inhabited the area, Pierre du Pont purchased the land and soon began cultivating incredible gardens which would be the foundations of what we see today.
