Old town, new attitude
The iconic image of Newberry is a clock tower: part of the world-renowned Newberry Opera House. It's a perfect symbol of the city in many ways. Newberry is a captivating blend of old and new; a progressive community rich in history. Midlands residents visit the Newberry Opera House for operas, of course—but also for plays, political debates, comedy, and even rock concerts. Come early and enjoy an upscale dinner before the show. Downtown Newberry has an impressive array of fine restaurants, like Delamater's and the Cabana Cafe.
Once you visit Newberry, chances are you'll want to stay. Not just for dinner, but for good. Newberry is big enough to be happening, but small enough to be friendly and safe. You won't run out of things to do here. Lake Murray is just over on the other side of Little Mountain. The nearby Lynches Woods Preserve, part of the statewide Palmetto Trail, offers spectacular trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. And when you want to get out to the big city, Columbia's Harbison shopping and entertainment district is just 30 minutes away. You're closer to Harbison than many Columbia residents.
Newberry is a place where diverse people, ideas, and businesses coexist and thrive. It's an old town with a new attitude. You'll fit right in here.
