The links abovewill keep you specifically in or near New Castle and Lawrence County, just north of Pittsburgh
Located 45 miles north of Pittsburgh and 80 miles south east of Cleveland, Ohio, the county has a diverse cultural heritage, quaint villages, scenic beauty, and abundance of community activities. New Castle is the county seat.
Restaurants offering the cuisines of the Italian, Polish, Middle Eastern, Slovenian and Irish cultures are located here in addition to a number of historical museums plus a genealogical research facility dedicated to locating the ancestry of many Pennsylvanians.
The heritage of the area also produced the theme of Fireworks Capital of America. At one time there were more fireworks manufactured in Lawrence County than in any other part of the United States. Two fireworks display companies are still located in the community.
The scenic beauty of the rural countryside provides hiking trails, rivers for fishing and canoeing, two historic covered bridges, a world class white water stream, plus a state park containing house-sized boulders created by the meltwater of the last glacial age. McConnells Mill State Park encompasses 2,546 acres of the spectacular Slippery Rock Creek Gorge. Created by the draining of glacial lakes thousands of years ago, the gorge has steeps sides and the valley floor is littered with huge boulders and is a national natural landmark. A gristmill built in the 1800s is open for tours. The park is open from sunrise to sunset, year-round.
