Lawrence County appeals to a crowd as particular as its offerings are varied. Fans of theatrics can take in a show at The New Castle Playhouse or put on by either of the performing arts programs at Westminster College or Slippery Rock University. Museumgoers are sure to learn something new at one of the rotating exhibits at the The Hoyt Center for the Arts or the Ellwood City Historical Society.
If experiencing a new area is most enjoyed through your taste buds, Lawrence County is home to cuisine from around the world – Italian, Mexican, Middle Eastern and fare to name a few. If local dishes call to you, the area boasts its fair share of eateries in quaint historic buildings and true to their roots, old-fashioned diners.
Before calling it a day, visitors and locals alike can indulge in a little retail therapy. New Castle is home to specialty shops like The Underground Railroad Shoppe and Jameson’s Candy. Several antique stores can also be found in both New Castle and surrounding Ellwood City. Volant and New Wilmington’s downtown streets are lined with unique stores. If you desire shopping on a larger scale, the Grove City Premium Outlets is just minutes away.
