Moving to the area

Can anyone tell me anything about the area? My husband and I are moving here and possibly living at Kerrybrook apartments. I would love suggestions on things to do, good restaurants, etc. Thanks!

1. Re: Moving to the area

There's minature golf/roller skating & a movie theater in Austintown. You won't be too far from the flower gardens in Millcreek park in Youngstown. I enjoy walking through the gardens a lot & when the kids were younger they liked to roll down the hill :)

As far as restaruants Austintown has a little bit of everything-Wendy's, McDonalds, Burger King (use the one on Rt 46-NOT the one on Mahoning Ave), Eat-n-Park, Denny's, Pizza Hut, Subway, Sandwhich Facotry, Perkins, Taco Bell, Arby's, Cracker Barrell, Ruby Tuesday's, Panera. My favorite is in Boardman though, Rockne's (about 20-30 depending on traffic) on Rt 224. I warn you that they give HUGE portions, perfect for splitting or left overs (& that's the half sizes). There's a mall in both Boardman & Niles (of course lots more restaurants in those areas).

There's a fairly new library not far from where you'll be living if you like to read. Not all that exciting of a place but for the most part still fairly safe in most areas. You'll also be rather in the middle between Cleveland & Pittsburg which both have some fun things to do. Niagra Falls is about 3 1/2hrs away in New York if you like road trips. Akron is about 45-50 minutes-they have Stan Hewit gardesn & house (the house is nice but you can buy just admission to their gardens) as well as a small zoo. Amusment parks Geauga Lake is about 1 hr, Cedar Point is about 1 1/2-2hrs in Sandusky.

We discovered a great little neighborhood restaurant/bar in Austintown called Trax. We have dined there several times and have never been disappointed. The prices are very reasonable!

From appetizers to dessert, the meals have been super. {Drink specials are an added bonus} There are several dinner specials daily plus a great 'regular' menu...something for everyone! The staff is very friendly too. We looking forward to the new tropical themed patio which is set to open this summer.
