Welcome... Y

ellow Springs is an authentic village with a rich and rare collection of unusual shops and galleries where you can find one-of-a-kind gifts for

everyone on your shopping list. You’ll find no “big box” or chain retailers here! Most shops are owned and staffed locally.

Art galleries and unique boutiques offer unexpected surprises: several bookstores, wine stores, a gourmet grocer and the most unusual and creative toy store anywhere! You’ll find shops full of fine arts, artisan crafts, jewelry, clothing, herbs and spices, body products and imported goods. Enjoy the charmingly-decorated downtown, easily walk-able in only 3 streets. After shopping, stop by one of our local bistros for an eclectic mix of American, Tex-Mex, ethnic, vegetarian and gourmet fare, surrounded by walls filled with local art, amid live music. A wonderful assortment of accommodations with atmosphere and location for any preference, including a vintage motor lodge and B&Bs in the heart of town, in a restored grist mill at the edge of Glen Helen, or in a Federal farmhouse in the countryside.
