Hermitage Things to Do
A Great Place For Children
Kraynaks is a wonderful place to bring children before Easter and Christmas. At first, you will probably notice that it is a large toy store. It is a toy store, but that's not why you should go. What makes Kraynaks so special is the Christmasland (and Easter) displays! During the Christmas season and Easter season, Kraynaks has an area that you walk through and on both sides there are themed displays. The Christmas displays always have Christmas trees decorated lavishly. Some rooms have typical Christmas themes, like the nativity scene, elves, Santa, polar bears, etc. Others are themed with popular characters, like Sesame Street. They are very beautiful! All of the ornaments on the trees are also available in the store. At the end of Christmasland, children can then go to meet Santa Claus. The Easterland displays both religious themes, as well as those with the Easter Bunny.
When I was a child, Christmasland was one of the highlights of the Christmas season! Even now, I still enjoy going to see the displays! They always do a great job!Related to:

Middlesex Diner: Breakfast with the Locals
This is the type of local diner which is well worth seeking out - especially for breakfast. While we were eating here we overheard the people at the next booth saying that they had had breakfast at this restaurant on a regular basis for many years. If it's good enough to keep the locals coming back it's got to be good. The food and service were both very good.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed Jimmy's Super Breakfast: two eggs, crisp bacon, sausage links, home fries and whole-wheat toast with jelly, all for only $3.99. Hot cakes can be had instead of toast if you wish. They even had my favorite breakfast beverage - fresh brewed iced tea - with free refills.Related to:

Favorite thing: If you like to walk on scenic trails, you must take a walk along the Shenango river from the Kidds Mills
covered bridge to Big Bend following the tow path
of the Erie canal. It's about 10 miles long.
I haven't been on it for a while, I'm not sure it's
still passable all the way.
The old canal locks can still be seen in Sharpsville.
