Tucked away behind all those cornfields, the Keystone State is full of wonders that few people know about. Sure, we might not have Disney World or the Las Vegas Strip - but we do have plenty of unique places to visit in Pennsylvania.
Hidden gems aplenty, you probably never heard of this let alone been here, but about an hour outside of Pittsburgh you will find a handsome castle on a hill fit for a fairytale; and you can actually venture inside!
Shakespeare's Restaurant & Pub, located just outside of a little town called Ellwood City, is hands down the most magical place around.
The outside looks majestic, but the inside is just as breathtaking. With suits of armor, swords and shields hanging from the walls, and of course, an overall royal ambiance, the owners of this eatery did not skip out on providing customers a full experience.

The best part is perhaps the prices. At a place like this, you would expect 5-star prices to match, but you will be pleasantly surprised to note that the lunch and pub menu are more than fairly priced; about on par with the other local eateries. While the dinner menu is slightly more, your portions are fit for a king!

Oh, and don't worry about wearing your Sunday best; casual clothing is more than welcome at good ol' Shakespeares.
