Within this charming small town, there’s an abundance of entertaining things to do and places to see. Of course, there’s shopping and fine dining, but there are also historical sites and niche stores that’ll take your weekend plans to the next level.
Here is the perfect itinerary for a weekend well spent near our apartments in Cranberry, PA.
Tour The Cranberry Sample Schoolhouse
One of the first things you should do before exploring the modern world of Cranberry is to take a step back in time to the colonial period and explore the history of the traditional American schoolhouse. The Cranberry Sample Schoolhouse is the only one of six Cranberry historical schoolhouses still standing with tours that’ll bring you into the world of the American colonial student. Stepping inside, you’ll visit a classroom where technology was a far-fetched idea, papers were made of slate, and the one schoolhouse hosted six students at a time. And you know what the best part about this is? It’s all free!
Devour Sweets at the Flour and Sugary Cakery
The Flour and Sugar Cakery offers some of Pennsylvania’s most delicious cupcakes and treats. This award-winning bakery boasts an extensive menu that is constantly changing with an array of different flavored cupcakes and cakes. In fact, not only will you smell the aroma of sugary goodness, but you’ll find some of the most intricately designed cakes in all of Pennsylvania! From unicorns to galaxy covered frosting, their creations are one of a kind. On the bakery’s Facebook page, you’ll be able to find their daily flavors and offerings.
Awaken Your Inner Child at Hobby Express
Hobby Express is in the heart of Cranberry Commons with a collection of some of the best hobby toys that anyone of any age can enjoy. Here you’ll be able to find puzzles, model cars, toy rockets, and other items. What’s even better about this store is that it could be the perfect place to bring your child on a day off and spend time with them while doing what every child loves: playing with toys. Altogether, if you’re somebody who still enjoys crafts and toys of all kind, then coming here and awakening your inner child is highly encouraged.
