Day 85/100
Chagrin Falls
This tiny town is home to a little waterfall, the original Dewey’s popcorn shop, a newly opened Jeni’s Ice cream, and boutiques including the upscale Hermes shop. I originally heard about Chagrin Falls because of Bill Watterson - if you’re familiar with the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, this is where the artist grew up! As a kid who spent most of elementary school reading and attempting to copy and redraw his strips, it’s amazing to look around in every season and imagine that this was the backdrop of all of those stories. I used to think that the neighborhood Calvin lived in was just any cold place with seasons and snow, but now I can picture him toboganning through the woods here and tiptoeing on a fallen log over a river in a park off of Chagrin River Valley Rd.! I intentionally drew Jeni’s into this picture because I am so happy that it can now call Cleveland its home. This Columbus-based ice cream shop is home to delicious flavors like riesling poached pear, salted caramel, and pistachio honey! (You can also find it sold by the pint in specialty markets like Miles Farmers Market and Nature’s Bin, or you can be lucky enough to have a roommate who recently got an ice cream maker and Jeni’s cookbook)
