My husband and I like to road trip and for my birthday we decided to check out Tipp City, Ohio.
I’d never heard of it, but he saw a quick blurb in a USA Today article — 50 state road trip: Beautiful small towns in every state.
We’ve driven past Tipp City on our way to and from other locations in Ohio but never thought to stop. This time, we made a point to check out this picturesque small town.
If you’re thinking about visiting Tipp City, give yourself more than the hour we did. You’re going to need it!
Here’s where we stopped and we recommend each place!
Sweet by Kristy – delicious sweet shop. We got the fudge. It comes in a tiny container WITH a tiny spoon. Super convenient and only three bucks! They also have ice cream!
Cairns Toys – fairly large toy store. If you have kids, or you’re a kid at heart, you have to stop here. It’s pretty much toy heaven. In the back of the store there’s even a huge wooden train track, so kids can play AND shop at the same time. Genius.
Living simply soap – Bar soap, liquid soap, bath bombs, bath sponge, literally everything bath. And don’t get me started on how GREAT it smells in there. Amazing. My husband picked up an “Aruba Coconut” bar soap.
That Place on Main – clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories. Lots of cute, cozy, casual looks. It’s big too with a sliding glass door when you walk in. The owner is really nice.
Merchant 31 – I walked in because there was a shirt I could see from the window that said “No. Not Today Satan”. SO FUNNY! Definitely my kind of clothing store. They also had these amazing bracelets, but I couldn’t bring myself to spend $50. I did get some unique mirrored sunglasses for $15. I’m wearing them in the top photo.
I wish I could pick up each aforementioned place and relocate it in Columbus, so I can shop there all the time.
We didn’t get to try any of the restaurants but the owner of That Place on Main recommended: Coldwater Cafe and Harrisons.
Definitely worth the trip if you like to support local businesses and check out different places around Ohio!
