Revitalizing An Industrial Town
When first coming into Sharon off of I-80, first impressions are not too welcoming. The huge, polluting factories and decaying industrial buildings are a sight for sore eyes.
However, the people here will win your heart over, a very hard working blue-collar town with a population of under 17,000. Their claim to fames are Daffins - the Worlds Largest Candy Store, and Reyers - the Worlds Largest Shoe Store. Nearby, is the 444 Flags Park which is quite the site to see.
I go to Sharon/Hermitage once a year to go to Kraynaks for their Christmasland display. Sometimes I also go for their Easter display! I haven't explored much else in Sharon. Perhaps sometime I should!
Wonderful, sunny, Sharon Pennsylvania. Not a tourist attraction, but a great place to grow up.
Down town you'll find the only real reasons outsiders would come to Sharon: The Winner ("the worlds largest upright fashion store") and Reyers (the large shoe outlet).
If you have a sweet tooth there's Daffin's candies and Philidelphia Candies. Daffin's is more elaborate though. They have collectibles, cards, wrapping paper, and most importantly free samples in the chocolate land in the back!!
Then there is the scenic Buhl Park with it's Lake Julia, Casino and public swimming pool on the lake. They recently added a gazebo on top of the hill overlooking the park and across the horizon. The hill's great for sleading on in the winter.
All in all it's not a bad place to live. If your visiting though, you probably won't stay in Sharon. There aren't really and hotels or lodgings. For that you'll have to go out into Hermatige, but it's not too far if you have a car (he, he, that rhymed).
