Hermitage, Pennsylvania, is the place that I grew up in. It's a fairly big town, with a lot of things to do. Its an area that is mostly off of the interstate. There are mostly family friendly stores. There are places where families can go to eat, and plenty of hotels for friends to stay at for visits. However, there aren't many attractions. We do have the world's only Kraynaks! They have Easter Bunny Lane and Christmas Land. People come from around the world for it. Hermitage's stores are mostly in Plazas now, our big mall has unfortunately started to close down. However, most of Hermitage is restaurants, and stores. We have parks and things of the sort for kids, which is plenty of fun, but I wish there was something that would keep the younger generation from getting into trouble, and get them interested in more than just school sports.

Hermitage has a lot to offer residents given its size. It has a great public school system and many family-friendly neighborhoods. Hermitage is a very safe community and offers residents a high quality of life. The city continues to reinvest in the community, and another perk is its central location between Pittsburgh and Cleveland.
I grew up visiting my grandparents every weekend, we would spend time shopping at all the local shops, eating at all the different restaurants, etc.
