New Wilmington is a small town located in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania. You’ll find the town located approximately 1 hour north of Pittsburgh and about 2 hours south of Erie, and is right in the heart of Amish country.
One of the things we love about this little old town is its laid-back vibe. You won’t find large shopping malls, chain stores and big factories. It’s one of those towns that has small mom & pop type of businesses and everyone is extremely friendly. It’s the perfect place to visit if you want to escape the big city and relax.
During our romantic weekend getaway to New Wilmington we stayed at The Jacqueline House of Wilmington Bed & Breakfast Inn. You’ll find this B&B located on PA Route 956 in New Castle, just a short drive from New Wilmington, Volant and Mercer. The innkeeper Becky will make you feel right at home from the time you arrive until you depart.
The B&B offers 4 beautifully decorated suites…all with their own private bathrooms and one with a jacuzzi tub. We were really impressed with all of the little extras that you get when staying there and the entire home was comfortable and clean. Every evening you can enjoy a glass of complimentary wine, a gourmet breakfast every morning and during the summertime you can enjoy a swim in the outdoor pool.
To keep ourselves busy we went out and explored the surrounding area. We stumbled upon the historic Westminster College which sits in downtown New Wilmington which offers 40 different degrees to their students. We really enjoyed driving through the campus.
Right down the street from the college we decided to stop into Pizza Joe’s for some dinner. We enjoyed a large pizza, bbq wings and French fries. Everything we had was delicious.
