Grove City / Prime Outlets

If you're like me, you may have a "significant other" who doesn't necessarily share your view that good functionality of an airplane is to fly 45 minutes, and pay over $100 for a hamburger that you wouldn't even bother to drive for. (Don't you hate it when they throw logic at you?) I found the answer.

29D , Grove City airport is located adjacent to Prime Outlets, a huge outlet center. Over 140 outlet stores, from Bose to Sony to all the designer names are there. If she likes to shop, this place is a nice change from the local mall. There are also many options for food, but I recommend The Elephant and Castle Inn. It's got great food in a lively atmosphere and is a cut above most of the chain restaurants that are also nearby. It also seems to be very popular with the locals...always a good sign.

While the complex is adjacent to the airport, it can be a fairly long walk, especially in colder weather. There is a van that goes back and forth, or someone from the FBO might  offer take you over in their car, as they did for us. It's literally a 3 minute drive.

I'm not much of a shopper, and my wife's not much of a flyer, but this little trip worked out great for both of us. She got to shop, I got to fly, and we could do it together.  What used to be a boring, almost  2 hour drive for us was cut in less than half. She loved that. If you're in the western PA / eastern Ohio area and you're looking for someplace a little different from your basic hamburger run, you might want to give this a try.

P.S. Careful...lots of skydiving and some soaring at this airport.
