  • Newberry Opera House
    Evincing a history that dates back to 1881 and includes stints as a city jail and a silent-film palace, the 426-seat Newberry Opera House is a spectacle in itself. A recent multimillion-dollar renovation project modernized the institution's eclectic Victorian craftwork by adding state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems and removing the horse-drawn curtain-raising system.

  • Country Club of Newberry
    In 1922, a small but devoted group of Newberry community members pooled their time and resources to create a space to enjoy golf, tennis, swimming, and the company of friends. From their efforts emerged the nascent Country Club of Newberry, originally comprised of a nine-hole golf course with sand greens and an outdoor pool that, true to the times, was no more than a pond fed by more than 75 springs and a steady flow of ragtime music. The pond still rests behind the sprawling, ivory clubhouse that anchors the Country Club today, a scenic testament to the humble beginnings of a club that now encompasses an 18-hole, championship golf course, two lighted tennis courts, and a junior Olympic-sized outdoor pool. Streams and ponds snake throughout the golf course, threatening the life force of errant orbs on nine different holes. With a length of 6,530 yards from the tips, the moderately difficult layout offers four color-designated tees to cater to players of all abilities and those with an unwavering allegiance to the color gold. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 72 course Length of 6,530 yards from the farthest tees Course rating of 71.6 from the farthest tees Slope rating of 133 from the farthest tees Four tee options

  • Anchor Lanes
    Anchor Lanes houses a scintillating slate of activities that pleases laid-back guests and diehard competitors alike. In addition to bowling with traditional or bumper lanes, the alley fosters a festive atmosphere with its children's-birthday-party packages, which include food, bowling, decorations, entertainment, and cleanup. During Anchor Lanes's Rock-N-Glow, the lights fade, the music revs up, and lasers cut through dense patches of fog like the headlights of a runaway roller-coaster car. When the lanes aren't illuminated in the cool blue hue of black light, dedicated bowlers of any age can hone and flaunt their skills during league play.
