Newberry is a quaint town with a huge personality. The folks are super friendly, stores are easily accessible, and the food is delicious. This town is very historic. They have The Opera House where all sorts of engagements take place: weddings, concerts, etc. The Japanese park will blow your mind. The Firehouse is beautiful and holds many social engagements. A shuttle service guides you through downtime. The weather in the town is fairly beautiful. I wouldn't change a thing.

Newberry is home for me. Born and raised in the big city. Im 30 years old and I have no plans on moving any where else. i love the down south southern hospitality. Newberry is a busy city but we have alot of activities that go on. Newberry is known for its main attraction, the Newberry Opera house. Its located in the heart of the city, downtown. That's where everything take place at. We have the christmas tree lighting, october fest, st patrick day events.
More diversity within the city. There is a much older population in the town. Roads should be fixed, as rain has caused more potholes to occur, making driving very dreadful.
