Crawford County’s Spring Adventures Are in Full Bloom!
Explore all that Crawford County has to offer in the springtime season. From sunny outdoor excursions to rainy day indoor fun, the spring season is when Crawford County blossoms with excitement! Take in the beautiful sights of the season at one of our many state parks or on the water at our natural and man-made lakes. Explore your artistic side by enjoying performances from our live theater groups and outdoor music venues. Shop till you drop at dozens of small boutique shops offering handmade, locally-made and sourced products and artisan wares.
Outdoor seating is back in vogue at our unique restaurants. Sample some PA-made wines and brews while listening to live music and soaking up the sunshine. On those rainy spring days, try out some indoor activities like axe throwing or bowling, or test your problem-solving skills in an escape room. Catch a movie at the local movie theater or try rollerskating with your friends. To satisfy your sweet tooth, visit Save Room for Dessert or Finney’s Chocolate Shoppe for a delicious Easter (or just-because-it’s-spring) treat!
For more outside-the-box adventures, come visit us during our First Friday or Second Saturday events in Meadville with local artisans, live music and delicious foods. Take the kiddos on the Peter Cottontail Express at the Oil Creek & Titusville Railroad or explore the Drake Well Museum for a look into America’s industrial past. Craving more unique Pennsylvania history? Check out the Johnson-Shaw Stereoscopic Museum or the John Brown Tannery. For a more laid-back weekend, enjoy some self-care at a bed & breakfast or historic inn. You can also include some much-needed recuperation and rejuvenation with a massage or a facial at a relaxing spa in town.
