Top 10 Places You Must Visit Before Leaving Grove City College

Most of the excitement in Grove City, PA takes place on the college campus. There’s certainly no disputing that. However, although Grove City might seem a relatively sleepy town, there are many hidden gems that can make your off-campus experiences quite interesting.  Here, we’ve collected the top ten destinations (more or less in the vicinity of the college) that you must visit before you graduate.

  1. Guthrie Theatre – Built in 1927, the old-timey Guthrie boasts a movie-viewing experience “where the atmosphere of the past and the technology of the present create memories for the future.” What’s not to love? Guthrie 2
  2. Leesburg Falls – Just off a small road about 10 minutes from campus, you’ll find a beautiful waterfall just waiting to be explored. Visit in the summertime and you can wade in the pool at its base.
  3. Thrifty Threads – We all know college students are poor. Find amazing deals at this great thrift store that is always running deals. I mean, clothing there is regularly $.50, but it’s always nice to get ten items for $1.
  4. McConnells Mill State Park – With a spectacular gorge shaped by glaciers, the park provides ample space for whitewater boating, climbing, hiking and more.
  5. Emmett’s Orchard – Exploring Emmett’s makes for an excellent autumn Saturday jaunt. Although you can’t pick the fruit, you can certainly buy it. (Their honeycrisp apples are to die for!)
  6. Moraine State Park – Visit in August or September prepped to swim in the refreshing lake. Come with friends, games and a picnic.
  7. Grove City Outlets – Want a shopping excursion? People come all the way from Canada to visit the Outlets’ 140 stores, so you’re lucky to have them in your own backyard.
  8. Presque Isle State Park – A visit to Lake Erie’s beautiful beaches makes for a perfect Labor day excursion. Plus, entrance to the park is free!presque isle
  9. The Brewery – Located in quaint downtown Slippery Rock, The Brewery is a popular destination for students who have just turned 21. For those underage, the food is great too.
  10. Downtown Pittsburgh – Especially if you’re not from the Pittsburgh area, you have to visit the city at least once! You can attend a Pirates game, enjoy fine dining or see a show.

So there you go. Your off-campus experience doesn’t have to be dull–you just have to know where to go! For more ideas, visit the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce Webpage.
