Columbus Weekend Adventure Day 1

Cassie and I are at it again. It’s been about 7 weeks since we came back from our post-grad road trip and we just can’t seem to sit still! This time around we went to Columbus, OH for the weekend to attend the Country Living Fair hosted by Country Living Magazine.

We left Downingtown this morning and drove West on the PA Turnpike just like old times. In keeping with tradition we took a western PA detour, last time was to the 9/11 Memorial near Shanksville, this time we went to Mill Run, PA to see Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater.

Fallingwater is in the middle of the Bear Run Nature Reserve. It was built for a wealthy businessman and his family as a retreat house. It sits over a waterfall on the Bear Run stream. Cassie and I opted for the grounds tour instead of the interior/grounds tour since it was cheaper and the most impressive parts of the home are the exterior views. It’s always cool to see things in real life that we learned about in class.

After walking around the grounds and taking pictures we got back on the highway for another 4 or so hours of driving. When we got into Columbus we were so hungry that we went straight to dinner at the Gahanna Grill instead of checking in to our hotel first.

Tomorrow we are off to the fair!
