Although this isn't really about design, I have to say the Design Sponge City Guides are excellent. Today's post on Bloomington, Indiana caught my eye. Indiana is my home state and I lived in Bloomington many years ago for about six months to get an office up and running before returning to Washington, DC. It really is a great place full of culture, restaurants, shopping, outdoor activities, rolling hills and of course, Indiana University, all in a small town package. One of my daily stops was The Runcible Spoon to pick up my morning coffee. It was fun to see it made the guide and is still thriving. If you're planning a trip anytime soon, they are worth a quick read before your departure.
