Plan the Best Day in Latrobe, PA, With These 4 Fun Things to Do
Latrobe Farmers Market
Start the day at the Latrobe Farmers Market. You’ll love the shaded setting of Legion Keener Park near Loyalhanna Creek. Not only is the market right around the corner from downtown, but it features lots of local products and crafts. This is a great spot to find gifts that you can bring home to your loved ones!
Saint Vincent Gristmill
Dive deeper into Pennsylvania’s rich history at the Saint Vincent Gristmill. Used to produce and store grains, the mill was established back in the 1850s when Father Boniface Wimmer, a Benedict monk, built it. Witness the original grinding and storing process and even stop by the shop to buy some whole wheat flour or cornmeal! The mill is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Keystone State Park
Latrobe is perfect for nature lovers and is adjacent to the gorgeous Keystone State Park. It’s only an 8-minute drive from downtown, yet offers 1,200 acres of pristine forest and hiking trails. The park also has a beautiful lake that was created in 1909 by the Keystone Coal and Coke Company. Kayaks and canoes are available to rent if you want to get out on the water!

After walking around Latrobe all day, you deserve a break! Head over to the Four Seasons Brewery and order a fresh pint. This popular brewery opened its doors in 2014 and offers tasty beers and live entertainment. You’ll love its laid-back atmosphere and delicious food.
