Tucked into the heart of the Springs, Young’s is famous for its adorable petting zoo, awesome food, and addicting baked goods. Also, there’s a driving range for you to take out some of that 8:00 a.m. class anger.
Good for just about any activity, Buck Creek is a great spot to get away from campus for a little bit – maybe with some friends for fishing, tossing a ball around, or laying down a blanket to relax.

Owned by the same people, a local Italian Deli that serves a wide array of sandwiches that are served on fresh baked bread, alongside other items like salads and pastas. Next door, a European-style bakery that also serves gelato, is a must-stop place for your sweet tooth! Both places are popular amongst the locals and the students!
A quick 30-minute drive away is a popular outdoor shopping center with numerous restaurants, a movie theater, and shops. The Greene is a great way to spend an evening or afternoon!
